Great shots thanks for sharing 8)

#4 is my fave, think it would also look great in b&W. Out of interest how did you manage to convince him to have his photo taken at such close quarters?



Most of the pictures I take are in the moment, and not requested or posed. That one was taken at or close to 105mm on a APS-C if I remember right, so that is how I got close in like that.

We do document all villagers we meet as best we can via photo, so that in the future we can work on recognizing them, which helps build a relationship, and also is helping build a better accountability system for a government that once had no way of knowing who its citizens were at all. So, I get many photo opportunities simply as a function of the mission.

Here is a link to the album. I apologize for not having much time to organize into themes, series, etc. It is just alphabetical by filename. It is about 1/3 of all the shots I have, just lacking time to upload them all on our slow internet.

They are the best 1/3.....and these 4 are probably some of the best of the best 1/3, so don't expect a giant portfolio of this type of stuff, however there are some other 'subjects' in there, such as the textures of Afghanistan, the military-industrial complex, etc. Most of the pictures of my soldiers and I are just for memory/snapshots, and aren't too great, most of them aren't even up yet.

Some day I will have a caption/background/sto​ry for all of my good photos, and I will have a cohesive web-journal of them for you to see, so this is definitely not a finished product, simply a work in progress.

Thanks!
