I was hungry, ravenous, looking at people like they were food, like walking food; hot dogs with legs, pizza slices with arms, cheeseburgers in wigs, none of it health. I have to plan the health option in advance, tactics, and those had gone out the window as soon as I saw the sun cutting through the streets. Although the original plan went out the window, base laid plans I think they say, the hunger pangs still lingered on. I used them to fuel my way through the streets and guide my eye.

I have been studying my own my work with a critical eye, tearing each photo up – metaphorically not physically – to get the root of what I like, dislike and wish to improve upon in my work. It is a slow and steady process and one that’s fairly continuous. Self assessment. I have found it to be a very useful tool, a way to help me develop and continue to make work that I enjoy. This photo was born out of that.

Close up and personal but with those usual cuts of light I do so much admire.

In post production I set about heightening the contrast to give the image a little more pop and once I had achieved that I felt the image was complete.

All thoughts and comments are welcome.

Happy Viewing
