Great idea for a thread! Here's a bunch of mine, very random:

People shots are always fun!

Here's a few from Boston in January

Wow, Olga, those are great! I especially like this one--the backdrop and the bird (most likely a pigeon like those on the ground, but it looks like a dove in flight) flying above the two lovers...spectacular!

Some of mine:

^^ Randy, it looks like Austin is quite the ladies man. ;) :D

Grumpy Apr 16, 2006 1:12 PM

nice pictures but where I live it is forbidden to take pictures of people without their authorisation so I never take these kind of pictures.

Don B. Apr 16, 2006 2:09 PM

I'm not really a people person photographer, but I have taken a few interesting shots over the years:

1. Luis Gonzales, Arizona Diamondbacks slugger, at bat:

2. Girl on tour boat off of the Big Island of Hawaii:

3. Sax player in downtown San Diego:

4. Guy mooning for camera in downtown San Diego:

5. They could not be any tighter:

6. Protest march in Phoenix:

7. Passengers boarding a bus in downtown Phoenix:

8. People walking in the snow in downtown Prescott, Arizona:

I'm not very good at this kind of photography. Most of my people pictures are of the environmental candid style, where what catches my eye is the juxtaposition of the people in their surroundings, not the people themselves. This is partly because I don't have the guts to take closeups of people I don't know. People often catch me trying to take their picture. I'm a creepy-looking dude with a big camera. ;)

Here are a few I happen to have online. I guess I could look back through all my photos and find some more.

I actually used to actively avoid getting people in my scenic photos, but when I saw what the many excellent photographers on this site were able to do with depicting how people interact with the city, I started trying to do it some.

Tom In Chicago Apr 17, 2006 2:38 AM

^Those are great photos. . . I like the ones from Central Park. . .

A few personal favorites...

A few ones I had handy.

Evergrey Apr 22, 2006 6:16 AM

i suck at people photos

Gutter Tech Apr 22, 2006 7:11 AM

Most of these are OLD, and some (three of them) are awful flatbed scans. My apologies if these are gigantic...

Lucky, I can't say that your Caribana shots still rock because that would imply the possibility that they could ever stop:)

golscorer4 Apr 23, 2006 1:21 AM

wow, this is a GREAT thread! I'll try to keep up the pace...

my sisters (one of my favorite pictures ever, you can see their personalities)

the guys after a round of golf

how's 111,000+ people?

more to come perhaps

Upward Apr 23, 2006 3:04 AM

Nice pics, Gutter Tech. They must have been taken with an SLR with a fast lens. 50mm prime?

Gutter Tech Apr 23, 2006 3:22 AM

You got it!

I find most people don't mind being photographed. Maybe that's just me, but people tend to be friendly if you talk to them...

williamphilapa May 27, 2006 6:46 PM

nice photos cheat...real nice :yes:

Photos I've taken with people in them are usually just afterthoughts, random, spur of the moment,
for amusement, nearly-always-candids, yadda yadda. Here's some stills from Chicago within the
last 1.5 years. (Seattle & San Diego photos offline these days.)

olga Jun 3, 2006 8:41 PM

^ Wow, those are great! Beautiful.

Here's a couple from some upcoming threads of mine, with "vintage photos" - pics from the early 1990's that I have scanned:

Olga, these have "National Geographic" quality. Very nice.

Border City Boy Jun 9, 2006 3:27 AM

Olga, awsome shots.

People pictures are really my weakness.

Here's one I shot tonight.

MSPtoMKE Jun 9, 2006 5:22 AM

Some girl in a carriage

Mine are nothing compared to the amazing shots in this thread.
