    Talk about composition...This is a great example of a properly composed image....Love the colors and your stranger really takes this picture from being average to a superb photo... The expression on his face is priceless....Love it..and the motion blurr really works here as it shows a man trying to be faster that the shutter....By the way, what shutter speed did you use?

    Re: Capture a Stranger

    Thanks for the kind words, Javier. Really just a fortunate coincidence. Although my focus point was on the foreground doors, I was really eyeballing the entrance opening at the end of the hallway to get the right comp and angle. But as soon as I saw movement back there, I clamped down on the shutter release since I didn't know what to expect.

    He was in and out of the picture in about 2 seconds. Got off 6 frames. I like the top center one too but his right arm is in an odd position.

    The shutter speed was 1/20s and hand held thanks to the I.S.

    Re: Capture a Stranger

    I never liked to ask for a shot. I have lost some fantastic faces doing just that. What I started doing was stand 6'-8' from a wall and focus in. I would walk back and forth to the wall till I got good a judging 8', then I was ready. I crossed my arms and held the camera on top of my left arm, above the elbow. All I had to do was spot a subject, walk up to my 8' distance and press the button. Once someone committed if I had taken his photo and I told him it just went off and I had not focused it. Then shot was a good one.
    Another was was using a 150 mm and shooting from a distance.

    Like they say-practice, practice, practice.

    Re: Capture a Stranger

    Thanks, Frog.

    Here's one from our Blizzard a little over a week ago. Kinda felt bad stopping this guy from his back-breaking job of shoveling a foot and a half of snow from his driveway.

    He paused just long enough for me to get 2 shots. Can you tell he is smiling

    A few from the recent past. Some may have been posted before (I forget).

    But all were perfectly nice strangers

    I agree that this is a great thread. I keep requesting that it should be a sticky, but so long as people keep contributing, it will be a sticky by default.

    Don't know what the book was but she was oblivious to everything. Bow Street Magistrates is just behind me and there were loads of photogs/film crews waiting for someone to come out. She just carried on reading.
