Dylan, that's another fantastic set. You should really think about a possible book-project.
I've never thought too highly of my own work. While I enjoy it myself, I never thought it would appeal to an audience broad enough to justify publication. Thank you very much for your encouragment. I think Leighton was the first to say that I should start thinking of a book, and a few people have repeated it since, and now you. I am going to start looking at what I do in a different light. Maybe there is an audience...if so, I would have never known if it weren't for the fantastic people in this thread.
I know I am relatively new here still, but I love you guys and gals.
A fellow I was quite close to quite a few years ago has made a career out of doing photo-journalism. He has self published a number of books, one on farm workers, one on the Mexican border, one on Texas death row, one of conditions in Mississippi. He is now employed by the University of California and is rather well regarded for his work. His name is Ken Light. Here is a link to his website.
Although the audience might not be huge for photos of folks on skid row, there is a long photographic tradition of such documentary work. Your work is gritty and real Dylan. Now you need to find a venue for sharing it beyond what happens on this thread.
Ken Light is an inspiration. Thank you Curtis, you are nothing if not kind. I have a lot of thinking to do.

The rubber ones work fairly well, but I had to take mine off of the 28-50mm, it wasn't wide enough and caused vignetting.
Yes, they do on my 28mm as well. The HN-2 is great, it feels like it is a part of the lens, it stays put and is wide enough. Might not do enough on the long end of your 28-50 though.
