The camera is beginning to become a part of my persona.
Yesterday, I went out and purchased a small 40mm pancake lens that works really well for portraits and video.
I was out for a bit, experimenting with it, snapping pics of girls and I conducted a couple of interviews.
I wandered, the sun went down, the city was filled with cool mist that blew through the air.
There was an old wrinkled man selling Habano cigars on the street. I bought one, lit up and puffed while watching people.
Photography is an exercise in detachment and observation. Your role is one of an observer. Taking in details and remaining separate, while still understanding the feelings your surroundings produce.
It makes you stand out and look like you know things others do not. (The girl from last night told me this as we lay in bed sweaty and musing).
As the last bit of ash dropped from my cigar, I caught sight of her. Sitting on the steps and looking around, not on her phone.
She noticed me from afar and I smiled, nodded my head towards her and approached.
I told her about the photography project and had her write.
Her interest was piqued right away. Her eyes were sparkling as she asked what I did.
I also told her that I wanted to put together some clips of interviews for a ‘gentleman’s club’ I was a part of.
The interviews would mostly be about how guys could become better with women.
She agreed to the interview and it was a really fun, lighthearted, and interesting one.
-Funny that she mentioned ‘legs’ as the most attractive thing…then laughed it off and became more thoughtful.
-Right after that she said that the first thing she noticed was a ‘soft’ thing about a guy. He couldn’t be…(I said ‘anxious’) and she agreed. *She was describing the first thing she noticed about me here.
-Because I used the right word, (anxious) you can see the attraction build in her immediately.
-Get over your approach anxiety fellas. Its not attractive.
-On approaching: people in NYC get approached and solicited every day by all sorts of weird people trying to waste your time. So when a stranger comes up to approach, they usually just want to sell you something or have you sign a petition…she indicated this.
-Funny when she said “follow them around with a camera”. And my reaction to that is pretty damn good. I am not afraid at all, in fact I’m proud to admit I meet women using the camera. Her eyes are on full sparkle as I describe exactly what I’m doing…picking her up with a camera. *mindblown.
-She indicates that the best opener on the street is an indirect one. My response “you have a nice smile” was considered too direct for her. I bet the petshop opener would work wonders with a girl like her.
-Humor works, had her laughing quite a bit throughout.
-Again, deadly honest. “All we want to do is meet women…” and she laughs some more.
-She is impressed with my breakdown of why online dating is pointless and right after that I tell her “I don’t have a hard time dating”. Honesty is king when you believe in yourself.
Right after I turned the camera off I could see that she was hooked hard. I asked what she was up to and she said that she was killing time because her friend had been held up by bad traffic and wouldn’t be in town for a few hours.
I asked if she had ever explored Brooklyn, she said ‘not really’, and I invited her to see my neighborhood.
I live in a very trendy and ‘hip’ part of the borough and everyone knows about it. But a lot of people stay away because it is still kind of industrial, poorly lit, surrounded by projects, and scary looking at night.
I told her I would be her tour guide and that I knew some really cool places to get drinks.
We got on the train and 15 minutes later were walking into a sexy little speakeasy that I love seducing women in.
Grabbed a drink, went to a booth in the corner and it was on as soon as we sat down.
She had great skin and hair, I told her so…you can see those eyes sparkling in the video and I let myself get lost in them. We were kissing before the drinks were finished.
I told her she needed to come see a painting that was in my apartment, and before we got there, I took her through a park and kissed her there for a while, put my palm over her hot pussy and made her moan.
Got up to my place, she used the bathroom, came in, looked at the painting, I came up behind her and took off her clothes.
Crazy sex. Animal style. When it gets really exciting like that I do weird things, part of me wants to make it a great new experience, part of me wants the girl to never forget the guy with a camera.
We laid there in bed reflecting on what happened and had a lot of laughs.
She was gone before 8pm.
The Book: An Introduction to Camera Game is Complete!
It came out great and I put my best in to it.
Read more about the new book here.
Thanks again for the guys who donated for the pass to view the Montreal story.
The money allowed me to get the new lens, start interviewing, and get laid.
There will be plenty more video in the future, thank you for the support…and read the fucking Montreal story already if you haven’t.
