Hello Everyone, 

I would like to see your favorite shot that showcases emotion. I will start. 

I shot this image from the back of a pickup truck. My buddy from work was supplying bike support for racers in a Tour from Philadelphia to the Jersey Shore. 

The racer was walking up to the truck upset that he was temporarily out of the race due to a flat tire.

I bought my first camera ever and, inspired by Eric, I went on my first photo walk. It was an hour and a half trip by train to the airport where I was to meet up with my family coming into town. I snapped this while at the airport waiting for them to land.

I loved this photo because I could feel the longing that he had while waiting for whomever was to arrive.

Very nice shot Connor. I bet this guy would love this image if he saw it. You captured a window into his soul for sure.

Thank you for sharing your talent. Is shooting in a shopping mall street photography since it is not public property but private that requires permission?

Although you cannot see a face, but it seems that his body tells a lot. Or may be I’m wrong. How do you think?

Decision.

I shot this last week on a walking holiday. I think the GR11 HDR effect adds to the sense of drama. I leave the viewer to fill in the story….

The HDR is rendering almost like a painting. I really like the womans hand gesture. Nice capture.

Shooting the emotion of strangers on the street is hard (at least for me!)  First off, its rare to find — so many people look just numb, with their headphones plugged in, or staring at their phones.  Then when I find it, I have to be able to react quickly, in a way that doesn’t break the mood, and hopefully captures the emotion in a way that respects the subject rather than demeaning them.  I tend to try to make this kind of photograph only when the setting really enhances or contrasts with the mood of the subject.  

Here is a recent one of mine that I was satisfied with:
