Have been taking my camera out most days. Already I am feeling more comfortable. I am looking at day to day activities in a different light. Photo below taken at Pedder street and Queens road in Central
I am involved in a charity project, the goal of which is to help interested asylum seekers develop a skill in photography. Yesterday we took some shots of just hands. For various reasons most of the asylum seekers are unwilling to have their faces photographed so we tried to portray them by photographing just their hands. The following images are from our first attempt. I have some ideas for subsequent shoots. We will seat the subjects behind a black curtain and shine a light on their backs. Hands will again be in front of curtain but hopefully we will get just a soft outline of the person’s figure in the background.
