Shooting from behind a subject is a necessity sometimes. It may not be practical to always get in front of the subject. What makes a from the behind shot work is an ‘answer back’ that focuses our attention.

I see a lot of so-called street photography on the photo forums that are from the behind shots of people wandering the street. Many of them fail because they have no answer back that focuses our attention. Without something to focus on they are just a mish-mash of strangers on the street.

They look like they are shot by someone that is scared to confront a subject, so they shoot from a distance and from behind.  Always have a focus point in your from the behind shots and you can bring in some winners.

I was out playing around with the IR cam and some impromptu fireworks popped up. The infrared Pentax K-01 cam was not the best choice for the job, but I made due with what I had.
