    Weegee and Gilden with a splash of Arbus but with the dance moves of Alec Soth

    Anyone of you make photos Weegee style with crown or speed graphics? How did it go? Those 6 sheet holders easy to load and use?

    This may sound like I am joking around but I知 not. I want explore making photos like this. Do not worry, though, they will not go in a zine. I値l probably print big and wheat paste them to the sides of buildings and have friends graffiti over them.

    Yes, many do Weegee style

    Meaning handheld, always a flash bulb and preset focus for DOF

    I just posted one of 4 people in a bar using a very simple P&S 4X5

    Look it up

    Enlighten me, who is many that currently do it? Off the top of your head, name your two favorites. And why.

    Let me guess, you own stocks in flash bulbs.

    Post that bar photo in this thread. Quit being a tease!
