Flickr a Day 187: ‘New York City Street Performers’

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 33,000-plus photos is an impossible task. So I narrowed the selection to recent shots, choosing self-titled “New York City Street Performers” for its drama and griping facial expression. “These guys jumped over a group of volunteers and also did some breakdancing”, he says.

Nathan used Canon EOS 7D and EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens to capture the moment on June 13, 2015. The Canon prime produces sharp images, even when the subject is in motion. This is a street photographer’s kit. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 1600, 1/640 sec.

From South Bend, Indiana, Nathan joined the photo-sharing site in May 2006. “I am addicted to photography and Flickr”, says the IT professional. “My favorite shots are animals, people—especially surfers—and buildings at night”.
