Candid Moments in Soho, NYC.

Candid Moments in Soho, NYC. - student project

As someone who's always on the go, I like to make the most of little moments that I can capture with my mobile device. I don't always have my "big" camera with me, but nowadays it's ok because the cameras on phones are really good.

I went around Soho, New York and captured some candid moments. It was really fun finding shadows and capturing a bit of the vibe around the area. I've always loved exploring Soho in NYC, it holds so much character and has a great combination of grit and beauty.

PRE-SELECTS FROM MY SHOOT

This moment really interested me, the school kids and the school bus are just so iconic.

What I love most about this image is the man's reaction as he walked past and looked at the artist.

This is the portrait of the artist, not such a candid moment but I love how this image is just full of character.

The man behind the camera usually never gets seen. This is the mane behind the camera!

Saying hi to myself! A classic Instagram-type shot.

I've always found lens flares interesting. It just does something lovely to what would usually be quite a bland image.
