Portraits: A step in the unknown

by Christopher Foltz

By now you know I am not much of a portrait shooter, this does not mean I do not like them or want to shoot them. I need to start taking them more and in my attempt this past weekend when I went out to shoot the Fourth of July fireworks, a guitar player sat down next to me on the pier. I asked him if it would be alright to take a few street shots of him and he said yes. This are my two favorites that came out of it:

Sunset Music

And this one, a monochrome:

Lakeshore Strumist

I think they came out well. It was nice lighting out with the sun setting, so no harshness. And here is a shot of the skyline with fireworks that came later in the night:


Hope everyone had a good Fourth.
