During the month of November, 2020 I shot outdoor natural light portraits of 25 people in 22 days for Getty Images.  The autumn colors worked for me with my out of focus backgrounds.

I stood in the same spot for about 40 minutes focused on this background waiting for people too walk by. On a normal day there would have been too many people but during the lockdown in NYC there were so few people on the streets. I set my camera on high speed continues and when an interesting person walked by I was able to bang off at least 5-6 shots. This woman was by far my favorite.
