fashion forward

black and white street photography with Leica M240 and Leica 50mm f2.0 APO Summicron

… one of my favorite photos of all time…

I took this image while walking along the newest far-west section of the High Line Park, near the Hudson Rail Yard, using a classic “street photography” technique that I decided to start experimenting with. This was shot “from the hip” with the aperture set at f/8, and the lens pre-focused to about 8ft using the distance scale. I’m certainly not an expert street shooter, so this image is about 2% skill and 98% luck, but it turned out fantastic!

The light is exactly how it appeared on that late Sunday evening, the shadows are dark, and the details are crisp. And yes, the gentleman pictured here did actually look this fashion forward.
