I love this. It is a reality check for some. I actually know some homeless that sit in the streets where I live, it is a big taste of reality for what lives people live. Great humanitarian shot.

Thanks, it certainly is many of the homeless have mental issues and no where else to go. Be thankful for what we have!

This is the type of image my wife would capture. I am a bit self conscious for this type of photography. Wonderful work and love the B&W processing

Behind The Lens

Location
Mobile Al
Time
Mid morning
Lighting
He was on the shaded side of the street, out of the hot sun. Some reflected light was coming from the opposite building.
Equipment
Canon 5D Mark III with my walk about lens Canon 24-105mm
Inspiration
The sounds of the harmonica as we walked down the sidewalk and his complete focus on his music.
Editing
Yes, desaturated the photo and then tone mapped the original photo with two copies, one over exposed +2 and one under exposed -2 in Lightroom. Uploaded to Photomatix Pro and used the Exposure Fusion - Artistic preset and modified the photo from that setting. Finished post processing and sharpening in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 24-105mm lens, Canon 17-40mm lens, Gitzo Carbon 6x tripod, Really Right Stuff ball head, Panasonic DMC-LX7.
Feedback
Use all your senses when you walk and look for the source of what has attracted you. As you photograph, be respectful of each person and for street photography try not to be intrusive. A quick one or two shots is probably all you will get then move on to find the next subject for your camera.
