w/nw: eye contact

Sometimes not being invisible and/or not having a dead-like quiet shutter is what makes the shot

Didn't embed images, just linking to them.

Took this guy the year before in Merida, Mexico, saw him near the church every morning with various cronies, whom he appeared to sick after me after which I high-tailed it out of there (I seem to attract that sort of attention, haha):

And most recently, this guy, on whom I tried my own b.s. skills on, but was caught red handed and failed miserable, hahaha:

Excellent posts! I really enjoyed viewing your photos. Thanks for taking the time to share.

Eye contact usually is one of those things that seem to turn a candid exposure onto another tangent, but given the theme for this thread, it's really touched on a lot of things. Some people look uncomfortable, while some don't mind at all; some offended, some delighted; and some are stoic, while others are enthusiastic. Kind of interesting how eyes are indeed "windows to one's soul."

Oh yeah, here's mine (fed 2 w/ J12).

Candids of the media are always fun. Many of them are nasty and of course they all know they are fair game.

Underexposed out of focus then the shop admitted screwing up development (hence all the dust & hair and stuff) but do I look like I care ? If I find time, I'll be retouching some of the bigger scars.

The bigger this picture is, the more scary the man on the right. This is a bigger version than that found in my gallery, especially for you friendly folks of RFF

Eye contact with the man on the left side
I've crossed him several times on the street since, but he seems to have forgotten about the photo Works in the neighborhood

I was thinking more of Tuco that night. (So was Eli, or so he told me.)

Shooting candids at my nephew's wedding a couple weeks ago and came across a couple of shots where someone was giving me "The Stinkeye" - made me laugh. I thought of starting a new thread - maybe "involuntary model resentment" or "proto-paparazzo" - but there are some really good images in this thread. It deserves a bump. My modest contribution:


M6 - 35mm Summilux ASPH - Efke KB400


M6 - 35mm Summilux ASPH - Fortepan 400

I got busted by this guy yesterday. He shouted out to me "Is that a Canonet?" (it was an Olympus 35 SP). Turns out he knew about RFs, still used a film SLR for b&w and only used digital for colour stuff.
