Way Outside My Comfort Zone

By LynneJoyce  
I was Archive Diving in an attempt to rationalise all my photo folders (fat chance) and realised that I hardly ever take photographs of people. So, as a challenge to myself, I trawled through said folders and tried to put together a post devoted to people. The fact that I had to go back as far as 2019 shows how far outside my comfort zone people shots are!

Anyway, here they are in all their glory starting with the lovely lady from Portugal. See how many of the people you recognise in this selection.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these shots.

A delightful lead image, Lynne caught to perfection and I love the way you've managed to get her fingers coming out of the frame at us.Smile
A lovely selection of shots here and I wonder if you remember the buzz that you got from taking some of them?
Now that just has to be Lillian in V12 Wink

Excellent set of images and so many photographers have trouble dealing with people.
Two tips I find helps is just say hello and if they mind you taking a picture, they can only say no.
Second find a crowded area, stand still right in the middle while making yourself bold and wait for people to come to you. Given you were there first they never think it's them you want to photograph. You do get the odd look sometimes but they are wonderiing what your doing.

A wonderful collection of people pics, Lynne 👍🏻 The only person I recognise is Isabel in V9...but as John says, could be Lillian in the centre of V12...😃
