I traveled downtown over the weekend and enjoyed the last of the “spring” weather (translated: temps under 90 degrees). One of my stops was the Dallas Farmers Market. An excellent destination for SO many reasons.
I took hundreds of photos focusing on several different projects. Today’s post reflects the people I photographed. I know you should have permission from a subject, but how would I get the candids? And I have no business cards as I’m just a beginner so explaining why I want a person’s picture would take some explaining. Any thoughts from professionals out there?
As I walked around snapping, most people didn’t even notice me.
The above photo is of a vendor who needed a break from the heat. Never saw me. The gentleman below noticed me and wasn’t too camera shy. Weirdly though, him watching me put me off so I smiled and kept walking.
And this little boy noticed me snap this picture and immediately turned away. I don’t blame him; I don’t like being in pictures either.
As this is the second time I’ve photographed people (other than family), I welcome any feedback. Positive or constructive. In the meantime, I am venturing out to a local airport soon for more picture taking. Have a safe and peaceful week!
