A candid look at 2017: Unforgettable faces, people and moments

Winter storm blasts New York City

In 2017, I focused more of my photography on capturing moments. This means being at the right place at the right time, and with all of the right settings on the camera. It's not as easy as it sounds.

A lot of it is luck, but there are parts the photographer can control. Anticipating from which vantage point the action or emotion can be best viewed requires a little intuition and experience, but it gets better with practice.

Another part is identifying the character (or characters), especially at large events with hundreds, if not thousands, of people. This can help lead to unforgettable photographs.

I want to share with you some of my favorite moments captured in 2017 that show unforgettable faces and people or simply people in some unique situations.

The Final finishers [November 5]

Standing at the finish line of the NYC Marathon hours after more seasoned runnings finish is a batch of the final finishers. These are the people who despite difficulties during the race or even in life, they were determined to complete the race, no matter what. I did a full story with these winners for work (check it out here), which included photos of their finish and audio interviews with them. More photos that didn't make the story are posted here.

Those are my favorite shots from 2017 showcasing people and moments. Let me know what you think in the comment box below. Thanks for checking out my blog.
