Here's the third in this series of semi-candid street portraits. In some cases I ask permission, but after taking a few shots I go away, only to return later from a distance (the lens has an effective focal length of 450mm) and grab a few more. Sometimes the subjects are aware of the second series and sometimes not. Here's a case where the girl wasn't aware.
I'm convinced that a candid shot captures more personality... resonates more in my mind... than one in which the subject composes, then poses. Once again, there was a battle here with 1:30pm lighting. Increasingly I'm learning both how to win that battle and how to use it to dramatically pull out more of the my attitude about the subject.
