Alfred Eisenstaedt said that when talking about candid street photography. Its a lesson that I must remember when I take my camera out with me so that I can take more photos like these:
While these photos might be good, I think I can always do better when interacting with potential subjects. I currently just try to act like I am not there and be sneaky about taking a picture of a person, and most of the time it works, but sometimes I am noticed and I look guilty and scamper off somewhere. Thankfully there are articles like this that tell me that I should be more bold in my picture taking and to really connect with the subject otherwise the pictures might be pretty to look at, but are stale. Plus, you can probably tell a lot about a person’s character by how they shoot others and you can see that I am not that bold in front of others. I must change that.
Be bolder, Carlos…and always have your camera ready.
