“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.

One Day On Earth are asking everyone to participate in their filming event to take place on 11/11/11. It also co-incides with remembrance day, so some great opportunities to film. Check out their website – http://www.onedayonearth.org/
Watch this video from the same event last year, but on 10/10/10. (Can you see the pattern emerging?) There will only be one more event unique like this in 2012 – 12/12/12. After that when will they do it?
So on 11/11/11, with whatever filming equipment you have, be it phone, camera, or a RED ONE. film something, something that is close to your heart, and submit it.
I know I will be!
