Many photos from the weekend, but I won't be posting any of them.
Instead I give you an almost entirely unintended shot.
I spent a good portion of the day scanning shots i took of a band, but instead of them, you get their friend, Becky.
No idea what she does, or where she's from, or how she knows the band.
But she was there, behind me, and as she smiled, I saw a picture. So i waited until she did it again, and then i did what i do.
Though, really, I haven't done much of "what I do" lately, or rather, what I do isn't what I used to do, and taking her picture made me realize that.
Looking back at the beginning of this Flickr stream, my photos are very much of the moment, captured as opposed to staged. Now I mainly avoid candid photography, preferring photo shoots and moments that occur because of my interference. Much easier to photograph a moment when it is of your creation.
But it is supremely hard to manufacture an authentic smile such as this one.
Still don't know which environment I prefer, natural or artificial. But looking at this shot, I am leaning in a particular direction.
