Street photography is fun!!!! And if you take the time you can meet some really interesting people. This is Kamiece, and she very graciously volunteered to pose for the camera.
Am really getting into street photography. As I was walking on River Street, in Savannah, GA a couple of days ago, I saw this lovely bride being photographed. I jumped in and took a couple of photos myself as they were preparing her for the next shot. Then I found that she was a model and they were doing a promotional shoot, what fun!
I actually took a series of five photographs of “Sandwich Man”. As I looked at the photos, I could see that apparently we had a conversation, and he agreed to be photographed. This photo of a smiling “Sandwich Man” is slightly out of focus and got damaged at some point. I also have what I believe are two photos of his business partner. As you can see here, this and the photo below were informally posed. I am happy with the results and credit it to taking the time to interact with my interesting subject.
I printed in the old traditional dark room way, this photo which I named “Sandwich Man”. When I scanned the negative to digitize the image almost forty years later, I recognized the photo, but was not sure about the circumstances of actually taking the photo and that rather sour expression.
When doing street photography, some people ask permission to take a photo of the person and some just shoot. What had I done in this case? By the way, I do shoot both ways, but am finding asking and conversing with the person first often results in much better results. The next photo I post may help explain the process further…
If you can not view this photo, it is because Steve Jobs has censored it.
