I’ve put together a small gallery of photos showing some of what I’ve been working on the past few months. Click here to enter gallery.
Hi! I`m an Italian girl studying Japanese at Waseda University(I`ve been in Japan since September and I`m going back home in August).I love your photos…really! I myself love taking pictures, but don`t get the same great results, although I enjoy it anyway. I`d like to take more pics of people on the street -like those you showed here in this gallery- but I`m always afraid people may not like being taken pics so close up. Have you ever had any troubles?
thanks for your nice comments. re: shooting people, I’ve had a couple of problems, but nothing serious, although perhaps at the time it seemed so. But generally as long as you approach things with a smile, and develop a sense of who doesn’t want to be photographed, you’ll be fine. But it’s easier said than done. I recommend going to a festival or some other event where there is lots of photography going on and shoot a roll or two of people. This will help you get over any shyness or hesitancy you may have.
Or you could sign up to one of those seminars Kurt is offering…
