It's hard to be discreet when your camera shutter sounds like a train. I thought the photo came out pretty well for shooting blind. I took only one shot with the camera set on the table in front of me. There were lots of really great subjects in the library, but it's so hard to find the guts to ask them for a photo.

The shot is very good, the gesture of the man is of absolute concentration.

:XD: "When your shutter sounds like a train" that's funny! I would probably avoid libraries for that reason. Though I imagine there are many great subjects there. Well done with this shot!

Shooting blind is what exactly? Not looking through the viewfinder and snapping?

Nice perspective. I like your eye is drawn to the print on the book. Angles of the building and the bookshelfs go great adding depth and the hand adds good character.

No kidding. I'm always really embarrassed to ask people for fotos. XDDDD

This is pretty good, not one of my favorites by you, but its still good work.


Love his hand.

Putting the camera on the table created fortunately an interesting perspective, maybe the pic would be half as good if everything was straight....Really great job, I love this.

thanks :) yea, i think the tilt worked out pretty well. also, if i were to rotate it a lot of detail around the edges would be lost. thanks for the fav!
