:: on the busI guess it all started with this photograph I took in June 2013.:: on the bus by noahsamuelmosko
I found it quite interesting to combine advertisement and especially its fragments with commuting Londoners.
I said to myself "challenge accepted"
Or short phrases that would somehow explain the mood or perhaps complement a particular stranger.
I decided to shoot the whole series on black and white film or when shot on digital convert into BW. I know someone might say London buses are red and it would
look better in colour, but I believe that going colour way would be vulgar and I still believe that black and white is more sexy and gives us an opportunity to see things behind
Most of the time I used my fd 80-200mm/f4 on my AE-1 or 50mm on D7k. It helped me to get better composition so I didn't have to crop parts of the frames.
