as you might know, i've been working on a new photography series at lynda.com called narrative portraiture. one of the courses is called on location in nyc - click here to check it out! in this course, we traveled to new york city and photographed a leading broadway performer jared mason (the guy on the left) on the brooklyn bridge.
while we were shooting, the guy on the right was walking by and i asked him if he would be up for having his picture taken. he agreed and i captured the shot above, and he even signed a model release!
i like the juxtaposition of two distinct new yorkers and i think it makes for an interesting shot. what are your thoughts?
on another note, have you ever tried photographing a stranger? how'd it go? any advice for the rest of us on how to do this more successfully?
