View Full Version : Cliff and Bud

I was taking some photos outside of the Club when this fellow came along and asked if I would take his photo. I told him I did not have a very good lens on for portraits. He asked a couple of questions about what I was photographing and I said ok hold on I'll take your photo, just let me get out the other camera. He was like, really? Awesome. And called his buddy over.

Well, it was very bad light for the long lens I had on. I should have used a little flash but it turned out better then I thought it would. I desaturated the colors somewhat and I think it suits these two characters who obviously are living the hard life and were quite tuned up. Cliff is on the right.

They were my smile for the day. :)

Honestly TT, I have people come and talk to me all the time when I have the camera out, street people especially, but I spend a lot of time up and down the uptown streets and parks.

Thanks Marko!

Do you go back and give them a copy of the photo Raiven? Just wondering why they do it? Maybe just for the hell of it and a few minutes chat with a pretty lady?

If they have an email, I send them a copy. I always show them the photo on camera though. Lol, I don't know why they ask. I guess it's sorta of like 15 minutes of fame in a way.

Maybe there is already some fame about you? Well, with such photos you earn it. Very good picture.
