Snapshot

I am fleshing out another new project. Well maybe more of an exercise than an actual project. A colleague/mentor gave me an idea for a shoot where you break the 4-5 foot intimacy barrier and shoot a friend for a few hours using a short lens so you have to get close to them. Shooting pieces, parts, snippets etc. I am still figuring out the reasons and the why of it but thought I would share a few of the shots so far. I definitely want to explore this more. It was funny how my subjects said they felt really self conscious with a  camera that close to them while they did everyday things. It is challenging to find interesting parts to shoot when the temps are such that everyone is bundled up in massive layers. So stay tuned and let's see where this goes.

And it seems I am fond of hands.
