Congratulations to our Top Pic of the Week, Nolis Anderson! Located in Chicago, IL he used his Leica M 262 with 50mm Summicron lens to capture," The Nice Coincidence".
The first camera I picked up was about 10 years ago at a pawn shop. A Canon Rebel film SLR that I still own and still shoot with sometimes. I had always been into the arts but I was into the sciences as well. Photography was always just a hobby and I continued on with my life and getting my pharmacy degree in my collegiate years. Practiced for about 2 years then decided to go back to my photography as a professional career and haven't looked back since.
This was very much so a rogue style shoot. I wanted our time together to be a photoshoot as well as a tour of the city since she was new in town. So we walked around to some of my favorite shooting locations throughout the city and made it more of an organic experience.
Do something that helps to bring out candid emotions of your subject. By trying to get outside of my normal routine and try to experience different things in life. Getting inspired is tough when you're doing the same thing day in and day out. Be yourself, have fun, and be inspired by the people you surround yourself with. I will be having a smaller showcase in Chicago displaying some of my street photography from my trip to Paris.
