U Street

Street Photography : U Street and Shaw - Washington, DC

Personal work. Man, I've stayed away from this for a while. After a series of weddings and engagement shoots, I felt the need to bring it back to another thing I enjoy - street photography. In a sense street photography is like shooting a wedding - lighting scenarios change and anticipating moments. Street photography gives me a chance to interact with strangers too, some folks shy away from the camera and others jump right in wanting their photo to be taken. For me, I always ask permission to take someones photo. I know others who don't and thats fine too. 

Here are some photos made with my Nikon D700 using a 50mm 1.4. I shot these photos on U Street along with Akins Lawal who was shooting film with his Contax 645 Medium Format camera. Let me know if you figure out the story I tried to tell here. Enjoy!

CHLORIS + EYOB : ENGAGEMENT Shoot Meridian Hill Park & U Street - WASHINGTON, DC

Here are some photos from Chloris and Eyob's engagement shoot I shot in March. We had to cancel our initial session due to weather, but this time the rain held up and the sun finally came to let us do our thing. I had an awesome time photographing them - their happiness definitely shined through.

These photos were taken at Meridian Hill Park (aka Malcolm X Park) and U Street - where they first met.
