Photographs taken on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at the How Weird Street Festival on, well, Howard Street, in San Francisco. Only one focal length and lens used, namely, the Sigma 35mm DG HSM. Camera: Sony A900.
Being in a bit of an urban canyon, I was mainly looking for pockets of good light, where certain subjects would stand out. That wasn't achievable in every image (far from it), but #7 might be a good example to highlight my technique.
Developed from cRAW in LR6 with two custom made presets, one for color, and one for b/w. Especially the color images suffer somewhat from compression and loss of detail after being uploaded, there's actually quite a bit more detail to be gleaned in the original versions.

A collection of chance encounters, accidents, and discoveries. A couple of these pictures are arranged ("staged"), otherwise things were left alone and just slightly recontextualized. Against usual (somewhat harried) practice, with these photographs I did pay a bit more attention to exposure and composition.
Taken in the following locations:
Norwich, upstate New York.
New York City, Battery Park.
Sanya, Hainan Island, China.
Bar Harbor, Maine.
Ithaca, upstate New York.
Sergiev Posad, Russia.
In contrast to my other collections and galleries, this collection is not serialized or homogeneous in any way. Cameras and gear differ considerably, from medium format to digital.

A small collection of b/w (monochrome) photographs, taken over a considerable period of time, with very different equipment, such as Hasselblad, Nikon film and Nikon digital, the Ricoh GRD2 and Olympus.
The play with light and shadows is what makes the development of photographs in black and white so exciting.
