In late August, I took a class about street portraiture! I love taking classes and workshops, I’m interested in street photography, and of course I always love portraits. I was surprised at how nervous I was, though! I’m plenty used to going out and about with a client and directing them. I’m also fairly okay with trying to capture totally candid street photos where I don’t talk to the person/people in the frame. However, approaching someone on purpose and asking them for a photo made me very nervous and skittish! I paired up with another participant and that made it a lot easier. I ended up photographing five people (as well as two people in the class), and I am really happy with how they turned out!
