Can't remember if linked to this clip before, but anyway, nice little snapshot of a moment or two in Poland.

Kinda shows you, if you haven't been there (the build-up, not Poland) that a huge part of the game is in suspension of reality and enjoying an unblinking belief in the magic of the absurd, that what you are doing is not what's being caught. Question yourself or the others for a moment, and all crumbles to dust. Nobody can teach you how to cope with that; you have to swim like the natural duck or drown in the attempt, taking all the ship's crew down to the bottom with you. That's one reason why tiny shoots are the best: less danger of leaks.

Which goes to show how stiff models can ruin a shoot.

These guys have no problem with playing the fool, and so not looking self-conscious works to the benefit of the pictures, because the viewer is left wondering what was going on, and only if you are privy to the backstory can you know the why and the how, which is usually the creative shooter's intention: provide a bit of mystery with no obvious answers - keep 'em guessing, in other words.

Not a lot of genres allow that. Street should be one, but being mostly outwith the photographer's control, usually fails, resulting in a record shot that tells the viewer nothing more than this was this then, but which raises neither questions nor interest about that fact.

Acting is far easier!
