You don’t pick a Ted Lee pic. It choose you. His photostream is a marvelous mix of street art and studio portraits, and the view counts are unusually high. He shot self-titled “Embarcadero” on April […]
Photojournalist Giannis Angelakis has a wicked eye. The images he captures on the streets of Greece evoke emotion, and you immediately want to know what is the backstory for each. I could fill a week’s […]
Choosing today’s selection, I considered many—emphasis many— by Andrea Donato Alemanno. Among them: hugging couple; kissing couple; older gentleman; tailor; and woman with flowers. His photostream is a rich study of street black-and-whites, mainly captured with the […]
Is this one instance where color would work better than black and white? When shooting the Leica Camera AG M Monochrome and Summicron-M 35mm f/2 lens, as Mick Orlosky did on Nov. 2, 2013, color […]
Sigh, Dani Alvarez makes choosing one pic nearly impossible. But as the series approaches its ninth month, I must also consider what has come before; nothing is quite like our winner. He shot self-titled “Grande […]
I generally don’t bother with HDR, and my post-processing is limited as possible. Main reason: I don’t have time. Another: I prefer to set the camera to capture what my eyes see. That said, this […]

Street portraits are rarely as appealing as our selection, which wins the Day for perspective. Sometimes you got to go low to get the moment. Eye level is the way for studio portraits, but on the […]
If not for the Nike, this photo could easily be the 1940s rather than the 2010s. Look at the woman’s outfit to the left and those sunglasses on the lass to the right. This ambiance […]
Candid street portraits rarely capture as much character—eh, from cops—as today’s selection, which Brett Sayer captured on April 22, 2013, using Nikon D7000 and 50mm f/1.8 lens. Vitals: f/2, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 50mm. The […]
The photostream of Sjoerd Lammers is the most surprising one explored for this series so far, because the view counts are comparatively high—for every image. Even shots taken days ago have thousands, but those a […]
San Diego-based Nathan Rupert should be among the photographers featured, starting Day 189, for Comic-Con 2015. But his body of work is too grand to be so narrowly defined. That said, choosing one from among […]
