Challenge: New Year's Resolution V (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Leica M9
Lens: Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux M MF - Black
Location: Denver CO
Date: Jan 6, 2013
Aperture: f/4.0
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/90
Date Uploaded: Jan 8, 2013

My photography goal for 2013 is to connect with people more and photograph the moments in the lives of people. I mean to say I want to focus on more human connection with my photographs. I have a very hard time approaching people, but I do find that all those worries dissolve once I introduce myself and my intentions. Most people are very open and accepting. I want to practice that more this year. Along with, using my Leica gear much more often.

Congrats on the TT, Dennis! But I warned you about exposing a self portrait! Assume this is going up as your new portfolio pic.

WOW GREAT BLACK AND WHITE PROFILE BUT HATE THE WRITTING THROUGH THE MIDDLE AS IT DISTRACTS FROM VISUALLY ENJOYING THE IMAGE
WISH IT WERE BETTTER PLACED SO AS NOT TO DISTRACY\T US FROM THE FACE ESPECIALLY THE EYE AREA

For some reason it reminded me of some of Steve McCurry's street portraits. A portrait that kind of brings us closer to the subject. Great light (love how you showed the wrinkles and the eye). Nice textures on the hat and face. Great job!

Start with making eye contact, one at a time is good :)

that peeping eye makes this shot for me.

(and the fact that you had to talk to a complete stranger and negotiate to get the image shows your potential as a street shooter)

Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin! Seriously...love it, my favorite so far!

I like this, but I wish the other eye was present. Nice all the same.
