I used to talk to him on the bus a bit because we worked on a similar schedule and happened to bump into each other while commuting. He was always drunk and seemed like a nice guy.

haha, yes, the camera always deceives (and reveals), and then the eye of the spectator deceives too. i couldn't have guessed it was late at night, i thought it was tired commuters at the end of the workday (my own bias).

anyway i would also like to add that your street portraits are the best. i'm loving that new set of black and white photos. great subjects all, and my favorite favorite favorite composition is this one:

Hey thank you, that's one of my favourite shots. It's part of a project I've been working since Sept 2021. My friend used to run that pub, so I used to go there with my camera and just take photos of people almost every week. I now have thousands, which I am still sorting out. Some of them are on my website.

Occasionally I like to experiment with shutter speed. These are some of the results.

Good to see Crypto, It's been awhile. Although it does look like the incessant partying has started taking it's toll.

Hats off for the quality here Maras.

The guy's car was pretty nice and clean to start with. I've used a Sigma 1.4 lens with, if I remember correctly, the ISO set to around 2500 on the camera to expose it better in dodgy lighting. I normally don't go higher than that. In post-production I've lowered the highlights a bit and when I did the black and white conversion I've tweaked the noise reduction on Luminar AI to see if it compensated for the high ISO. Not that I'm averse to low light noise in some situations. In a way, when I look at the final results now, I think this photo is a little too overdone for my liking.

aaaah thanks for explaining, and yes it's not in the style of all the rest, so "not your style" maybe, but it's great in its own way regardless, like a desaturated nicolas winding refn film still. and your grasping of the subject doesn't suffer in the least (for me anyway), and if anything i'd say the finishing adds to it by making the car also the subject.
