Documentary Photography: Subway

Toronto Subway Photos

Snapshots taken in the Toronto subway – a Ryerson University documentary photography project.

By using a small HQ camera I was able to capture moments in time and emotions without intrusion and preserving the surprise factor most of the time.

“I fell in love with the process of taking pictures, with wandering around finding things. To me it feels like a kind of performance. The picture is a document of that performance.” – Alec Soth

What is a snapshot?

The basis of shooting photos is the snapshot.

What drama awaits one second in the future? That ability to react is the appeal, and depth of a photo. In taking snapshots, there is no such thing as a pro or amateur. The important thing is sensibility and instantaneous force. Snapshots born of those ingredients embody the aggregate of true pleasure.

Always carry a camera that can respond quickly, and capture high quality images.

“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” – Ernst Haas
