On Saturday I took part in Andy’s Street/Stranger Portrait workshop. I was massively out of my comfort zone having to approach strangers to ask if I could take their portraits, but because you can get some amazing results I just had to do it.
Andy set us the challenge of taking 50 portraits, well I only managed 30 but I got the most out of the group so I’m counting it as a win :)
There’s so much to think about when doing this; who to ask, getting straight in your head what to say when you approach someone, making sure your settings are correct, making sure the composition is good, and all in a very short space of time as you don’t want to hold these people up too much. Not all my portraits worked out but below are the ones that did.
