Danny Santos II – Portraits of Strangers

“Close up head shots of people with beautiful faces spotted along Orchard Road.”

Came across this video and I just wanted to share it. Simple but very effective portraits with great use of short depth of field. The video below is a compilation of Danny’s street photography portraits. You can view his website here.

While his title says Portraits of Strangers, he has, I feel, managed to make the portraits come across as if they are his good friends. There is nothing distant about these portraits. He makes them seem very approachable and this is helped by the use of a wide aperture, such as 1.8.

Enjoy!
