checkingEmail-300Another fairly recent passion of mine is street photography.

I have read a bit about the various schools of thought on creating images of people in their native habitat and I’ve tried several of the approaches suggested. I’m not much in favor of the advice that suggests asking people for their permission. Not only does it slow the creative process way down, it also guarantees that you will not get a candid behavior shot. Instead, you are sure to have a posed image, which although it has a charm of its own, is not what I’m aiming for. I’m much more interested in those natural and often revealing facial expressions that go together to paint a panorama of the human condition.
