Make Me An Offer...

By AlexandraSD  
Definitely interested isn't he Wink

I am getting rather brave now in my self portraits, i wanted to do something a bit out of my comfort zone, i thought that meant just shooting in the rain, but even during a wet and drab sunrise, folk were out and about, and there was no way i was going to stop my photography just because someone might see me, so i decided to make the most of it and do something very daring.

Bless him, he just smiled as he passed, he knew what i was up to with my camera and seemed to enjoy being part of something he will never see!

I admit to being tempted to comment on your previous upload, that it looked like a slow evening for businessWink but didn't want to cause offence - didn't know how you'd take it.
Well done, you, for extending your comfort zone...or perhaps daring zone is more accurate?

There's a definite story here. That's a real foxy pose. I love the red blouse and the matching reds on the shops. Well done that chap for adding a little bit extra. Smile

Oddly, my blog today touched on street photography: I've added a link to this cheeky image, which proves that mostly, people are fine with photographers doing their thing.

Anyway - how do you know he's not an undercover EPZ member?

haha yeah, probably would not have done that a year ago, actually i do hate folk watching me shoot, or i used to, but now im like, well, who cares, most folk do selfies, i just take things a step further.

haha oh come on, even i thought i looked slightly hookerish that evening, though tonight i chose red and black because i knew where i wanted to shoot for a change, this location and another one nearby, colour matching or something, but then this photo happened and im like "ooooh, now thats edgy!"

Gotta admit though, i enjoyed this shoot more than most Smile

Well because the camera was in the road, and a light stand on the path, everytime someone came along i would stop what i was doing to let them pass, but then i thought, bugger this for a game of soldiers, their going to be part of my art!

yes he was more than happy to be included i think, but my clothing works a treat in this one, i knew red and black would be the outfit for this style of shoot.

2 weeks ago i was in norfolk by the lavender fields, i wanted a photo, the conditions were not perfect, and it wasnt the shot i was after, i was there for those beach shots. I arrived to an empty field, and within minutes several cars had pulled up with instagrammers doing their selfies in the field. i thought about retreating to my car, being all self conscious, but then i thought, well, their doing something not too different from me, so why should i feel awkward about it?

Out of all of my self portraits from day one, the only person in shot was me, i never included passers by's, i did try to at the beach on my last shoot, got figures in silhouette, but this morning i had so many folk walking to work, i thought, either stop, go home, or carry on shooting and see what happens.

I am glad i carried on shooting because this one is a bit more subversive than my usual approach and style.

Of course, the next human subject to be included in an image like this is maybe 1 or 2 coppers questioning me in the street, i think that would look great if i can pull it off, so maybe if i do something this morning near a police station....

Oh Yes!!!!!

I honestly dont know what folk think when they see me doing photography, or anyone else. When i see folk doing phone selfies, i just think "your doing it all wrong", or "that makes your chins stand out"... selfie poses are not the most flattering, but street photography is another thing altogether, and im no street tog thats for sure, but combining creative self portraits with a bit of street and capturing candid expressions of strangers who see me looking like a dogs dinner at 5am is rather amusing Grin
