While we're on the topic of photographing people from behind, here are a couple of others that I've been meaning to post.

I love this backpack. She looks like an urban explorer.

I try very hard to not photograph people from behind in most situations. It really is the easy way out and it rarely ever works -- except with tattoos. Sometimes you just gotta shoot tattooed people from the back.

I'm not sure if that is what this guy's shirt says, but I can't think of anything else that it could possibly be.
We're back to our regularly scheduled Vintage Fridays. Above is another photo of my grandfather.
I struggle sometimes with whether to turn these shots into pure black and whites or to keep the aged color of them. It really depends on the shot and I often change them into pure black and white, but some just look much better like this.
Also, I just found another few boxes of these old photos that were put away and forgotten about. Should have some more great ones coming as soon as there's time to go through them.

I have a new article up on the Digital-Photography-School website, called "How to Deal with the Dreaded Chandler Bing Face."
The article is about how to help people who are uncomfortable in front of a camera to become more comfortable. And if you're not familiar with this reference, it's about a character from the TV show friends who is very bad at taking photos. Here is a hilarious 4 minute clip of the episode.

There were some great street portraits that we were unable to fit into the last Daily News article. The Lower East Side is just teeming with amazing looking people and it would be a shame to not show these portraits in some fashion. So I decided to put a few of the best unused photos on the blog today and tomorrow.
