The photo above was taken as part of Dhanraj’s class in medium format. My project was about people on the street in Winston Salem. This time of year, this gentleman can be found playing outside the Mass General Store of up on 4th street. I was concentrating on his playing the instrument and did not realize there was such a defined shadow until I got into the darkroom. I like the shadow but wish I had done a better job on the focus as I feel he is a little soft. Like I said, the motivation was for Dhanraj’s project but I have photographed this man on several previous occasions and he is always accommodating.
My name is Robert Hill and I am a photography student at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, NC. When I am not in school or taking photos, I am spending time with my 2 rescued racing greyhounds. I live in Winston Salem, NC and have had greyhounds for going on 15 years. The brindle is a female named Lola and she raced in Florida. The big white greyhound is named Cosmo after Cosmo Kramer of Seinfeld and he raced in West Virginia. This does not tell you much about my photography but, since this is an introduction, it should give you some insight into who I am. There will be plenty more photos and self-critique to follow in future posts. Until then, enjoy the hounds.
