obviously there's a story behind the photo, was wandering if you'd share b/c it's an awesome shot, since you're shooting film, what scanner are you using to post your photos? just curious b/c I'm in the market for one...

matt, how do you make poeple stand in front of your camera? just walk up to them and explain them what you wanna do?

this is again a lovely one. great subject, great tones. and yeah, just like marc, i am also interested in the story.

A brilliant shot - plenty of warmth with some great warm tones and very relaxed. Great work!

~you managed to pull the viewer right in with the tight crop, the viewer gets a peek inside his soul through his eyes...reminds me of Diane Arbus' work....a damn fine portrait, wish it were mine!!!~

Your work is truly remarkable.Unlike the others though, I don't want to know a subjects story. I have a vivid imagination, but I do understand how your photos leave people interested to know more.

marc: the only story is that he was there, on the street, and i took his picture. this is in philadelphia.

as for scanners, for the last two months i've been getting everything scanned to cd at the photo places (ritz camera etc), because i've been on the road, but when at home i use a nikon coolscan 5 and i'm really happy with it.

zoltan: yes, i just walk up to them and ask. sometimes i don't ask verbally, i just gesture... and sometimes i don't ask at all.
