Project 50

Project 50 is a self project of one photo a day for 50 days using just a 50mm lens.  The purpose of this project is to challenge me and also prove what can be done with a 50mm prime lens, and what a great lens it is.  For the next 50 days I will be using the Nikon 50mm F1.4 lens.

So this is day 1 - Model is Olga

Street Portrait

Go out on a nice day, find someone interesting and ask them if you can take a portrait.  Don't forget to get them to sign a release.  This is different than candid street photography where the person is unaware of you taking their picture.

Two different worlds

Two different worlds existing side by side.  One, enjoying a lunch break in the park with plenty of food.  The other, looking through trash cans for food and empty cans and bottles.

I met Bob on the street several years ago.  Bob is homeless, has been for some time.  He does not drink or do drugs, he just doesn't have enough money with his social Security Check to have an apartment.  So he has learned to live a transient lifestyle between Boston and Burlington.

Rainy day

I love shooting on rainy days.  It is a little more difficult as you have to keep the camera and lens dry, but using a compact camera and shooting from doorways or overhangs, you can manage to get some very nice shots.
