I took this picture because I think it represents the change from winter to spring. 
 I say this because the trees on the left of the image are still decked out in their holiday lights, while the trees on the right have had their lights removed.  I hope the image was successful at capturing this…. View high resolution

This is not one of my best pictures, but there is one element of it I think really works. That being: The look on this dudes face. With out that look I’d have nothing here. I’m posting it because as I learn more and more about how to make pictures I’m getting lots of images like this. Images where there is one thing that I get done well, and I’m really trying to learn from those pictures. View high resolution

This picture taught me a lesson, which I’ll explain to you now… 
I was walking around and saw this dude outside.  He had these really cool glasses on, and he was smoking.  When I see him I think, “Score!”  Because I think he will make a great subject.  
I start to move towards him, and he starts to move towards me.  ”Shit!”  Moving subjects are really hard for me to capture, because as soon as I stop moving and aim the camera the subjects reacts to the camera.  This makes the subject, and the moment, lose some of the candidness I’m going for.  
Then he takes off his sunglasses.  Again I think, “Shit!” Because the glasses were awesome.  Seriously.  It’s the details.  Know what I mean? 
Well I stop and snap three shots.  One of which is what you’re looking at now.  
Later I stop and check the lcd on my camera (Canon T1i).  Two of ‘em are rubbish so I delete ‘em.  The third looks great.  
Later in processing I see that when the images is larger (than it was on the camera’s LCD) it does not look nearly as good, and that bums me out, because if this picture were less blurry I’d be considering it for the street section of my portfolio.  
So the lesson I learned: I can’t rely on my camera’s LCD to be an accurate presentation of how the picture will really look.  Can it give me an idea how how the picture will look?  Sure.  But it’s important to keep in mind that it’s just that, an idea of how the image will look.  
Hope this is somehow helpful.   View high resolution
