Faces - Street Portraits

21 Apr 2020 9:46AM   Views : 434 Unique : 324

There's not a lot of scope at the moment for street portraits, so I've been looking at a selection that I've shot at various events. The world is full of people with such superb expressions and their characters just show through brilliantly. Be it the lonely soldier in a sea of weekend visitors or a brightly hatted lady with matching lipstick, there's a wealth of human interest around. Street photography needs approaching with courtesy and confidence and most people are more than happy, if they notice the photographer at all. I have stood in front of people just a few feet away and they haven't seen me, some notice and we exchange smiles, some are asked if they mind, but overall those especially at events are there to play in their costumes and finery and delighted to take good part.

Here's some samples ofrom an event in Haworth a few years back.

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
