Photo: Fruit Stand in Brooklyn (Taken September 14, 2010)


This is one of those photos that I felt I couldn’t keep hidden, but I was struggling to try to figure out how to make it work visually.

I shot it in color, but as I was reviewing it, I realized that the bright yellow bus in the background needed to be played down a bit. 

I wanted to keep the focus on the man and de-emphasize the yellow bus, so I converted it to black and white and did some minor edits in Lightroom

Now I’m pretty happy with it. 

And all good things work out in the end.

Happy Friday!

    Some wild contrast in that shot.

    1. Yep. Sure is. I had to overexpose it quite a bit. Believe me, when I said I struggled with what to do with this image, I struggled.

    2. Another thing, I fired the flash when I captured the image. Now, I don’t use the flash unless it’s absolutely necessary.
