A Photoblog by Monte Stevens

A place for my photos and random thoughts


with 2 comments




Sometimes I find it easy to approach people on the street and other times I find it uncomfortable. A fellow blogger, Earl Moore, wrote a short blog on this issue and how we can approach photographing people. His blog has been triggered by Bruce Percy who talks about his approach to travel portraits. I tap into both of these two photographers. Because of this young lady’s inviting smile my gut told me to ask her if I could take her photo. Thankfully, yes was her answer. However, if it had been no, I would have honored that and moved on.
