Men at work....?
Posted By: Rense, 01-20-2009, 01:33 PM

Have been thinking about a blog-series of "Men at work". That would mean 365 photos of working people, one year round. I could be fun for me, and I am sure I would learn much from it, because I am not a people shooter by any chance. But I think I am not brave enough for such project: it could be fun for me, but it must be boring for you . So, I'm still considering, but tried to do some first shots... Here's one of my first: the security guy at the front desk of our office building this evening, when I left. Auto Chinon 50mm 1.4, ISO 800, stopped down just a little at 1/20s, and a little pp.

Go for it. I have been working on such a collection myself - All in a Days Work. I'm not doing it religiously as you planned, but it is a thrill. Start with a long focal length, as you get more comfortable, work your way to shorter and shorter length. I got to shake the hand of CNN's John King because of this collection. My advise is not to take it too seriously. Good luck.

So if you go ahead with this idea (which is a good one I think) will you be doing Santa Clause for Dec 25th?

Song, thank you for the ecouragement! You have a nice series there, it's about in the spirit what I was planning to do. And I will take your advises seriously.

Gary, for Santa I have to go abroad, I think, because he's not so much of a Dutch fenomenon. But we have an equivalent: Sinterklaas (St. Nicolas), whoms nameday we celebrate at the 6th of December. Could be a somewhat more intelligent nephew of your Santa . So, maybe, when you're lucky, I will shoot him for you. Thanx for the comment!

Go for it, sure. In my opinion this are the most gratifying pics you can take. Itīs a risk to shoot strangers in the street but sometimes you know very kind people that make you fell surprised and good. And no pic as the ones that tell the story of another person. GO!!!
