Street performers and construction workers

Here are a few of the shots I took for the features assignment, I had no intention of shooting street performers...but, I just happened to see run into quite a few last Tuesday.

This guy was playing a hand drum outside of the Reading Terminal Market and looked like he was having the time of his life

I shot pictures of the band Sunn O))) last night, a very unique and extremely loud band(the floor was actually shaking at times). It was incredibly difficult to shoot because the only light source was candlelight and the entire church sanctuary they played in was filled with smoke...making the use of flash almost impossible. I wish some of these could have turned out better but I had to work with what I was given, including makeshift tripods made out of objects in my backpack. Many of them are slightly blurry and grainy, but I think they communicate the spooky feeling of the show better than sharp photos would.

Some Portraits

Took these today, kind of for fun and for class, my friend bought an electric motorcycle for $40 off of some dude and it made for a ridiculous prop. It's definiteley stolen
