These images are from a few years ago when I was playing around with a reportage theme and B&W. I've included them to demonstrate the various approaches;
'The Decisive Moment'
Man in Chair (Utoxetter Races) - I'd seen him move towards the track and wanted that rear image.
Burton Bike Man - I waited about an hour for a cyclist to come past (on the right type of bike) and to capture Drakelow towers that seemed to dominate the town.
Paddy - I waited to create the idea that Paddy wasn't seeing the world and the world wasn't seeing him (except for the child). Knowing a child would do this I waited with Paddy for some time to capture the moment - pity I got the shutter speed all wrong.
'The Man on The Bench' (Bath) - and I wanted to contrast with seemingly oblivious people.
The Cyclists at Leek (they woke up a few moments later and where from Canada, touring the UK by bike!).
'Bubbles in Bath' (taken in Bath) - I like that combination.
Beauty - A posed image this time, Ben was selling the Big Issue and posed for this one. I love the juxtaposition of his own vanity (piercings , tattoos, chains and that of the Body Shop.
