Brit Milah in Manhattan NYC

I've never really done a photography job for someone i've never met, I got a email that a form was submitted on my website and I got this nice message from Tulin asking if I would be available to join for her sons bris!

This job was a first and it was a total pleasure. They were the nicest and that made it more creative for me.  I find that when people respect you for your space and your creativity its much easier to concentrate on what im looking to take pictures of and not worry about everyone looking at me.

I decided to photograph this Bris as if it was in black and white, and fully document the silent moments that you would otherwise never see.  

This means im using high ISO settings together with a wide aperture equaling a shallow depth of field. The trick is to hold careful and still while hold your breath to take the picture so its perfectly in focus and sharp as a needle, and also trying to predict the moments ahead and make sure you are in the right place at the right time.

I hope you enjoy and to all my spanish friends, "Adios" till next time!
