I spent the Night Riding the Toronto Subway

Taking photos on the Toronto subway might be a little over done but if you wait for the right moment, or in my case, the right mistake, you

can get some pretty great shots. I think that the most difficult part in getting these photos was not actually staying out-of-the-way of all the people trying to get to work – it was actually staying away from security.

The subway always seemed to have someone around ready to tell me I couldn’t take photos. It was frustrating, but I’m a rebel, and I would hop the train to the next stop and say yes anyway. I tried not to push my luck though and I wouldn’t stay too long in any one place. Interestingly enough a lot of people seemed really interested in what I was doing. When I explained to them the effect I was trying to capture with these images they all seemed to really dig it. Of course, I could only show them the unedited images on my camera display.

This small series of images also have a much wider aspect because I’m trying to create a more cinematic feeling to these shots, and a cooler color gradation in the shadows which I think makes the shadow people really pop.


I think it works really well, but I’d love to hear some feedback on these.
