Wrigleyville, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Aaron Brown, Megan Ahrens and myself set to work on an experiment while in Wrigleyville. We attached a few flashes to some scaffolding and attempted to shoot candid frames of people walking by.


It didn't work as intended for a number of reasons. First, people were too scattered and few and far between - this would work much better downtown in the CBD after the offices empty into the streets. Second, people were too drunk and stimulated after the Cubs game; they were hyper-aware of us played up to the camera too much. Third, we didn't have any light mods with us, so the spill lit up far more and far too many people than we would have liked.


Aaron ended up shooting some pretty decent stuff, but this is about the only frame I was happy with.
