Deep Ellum series 2:
There are many sex related shops in Deep Ellum, and I wanted to grab a shot of someone trying not to look into one.
Looking back there are somethings I want to do better with my framing and such, but taking pictures outside of a sex shop was a bit uncomfortable for me, but I am getting better about being bold. Hopefully in the future I will be able to look back at this time in my development as helping me be unashamed of taking people's pictures on the streets.
desaturated the yellow, and increased the red to help get across the "sex"-ness.

i know what you mean about being bold. i have regretted shots i didn't try out of fear. i like this and i like the idea of catching him trying NOT to look. we all know what that feels like.

This was a brave attempt at pushing yourself to photograph in an area where you feel uncomfortable. You definitely got the association of the passerby with the shop. It's only if we do things that we fear can we really push ourselves to achieve more.
Keep trying as I'm sure you'll improve even more with time!

This really outlines mans struggle with forbidden things. I wonder how many times he has passed by this shop or if this is the first. Will he walk by again and feed his lust or will he walk away and let it die.

I have been looking through your gallery with keen interest... What I like most is that your pictures are self-explanatory and tell a story within...this is quite a good skill you have and I am actually quite jealous. I noticed that you are using the same camera as myself, though I really like the subtle tones you have on your images...
I know what you mean about being more daring taking pictures of people in the street...it can be a little scary sometimes, but well worth the results when you get them...I think you are doing a good job with conveying your thoughts through your photos so far...I look forward to following your progress...
