People are a very big part of street photography. But since pictures of people’s backsides tend to turn boring very soon, you have to shoot people in the face. And doing so with a perfect stranger requires a bit of nerve and some practice. Especially if you like to shoot strangers at point-blank range and with a wideangle lens. Nerve i don’t lack. Practice, well… i can definitely use some of that.
So i headed out to Rome’s Trinita’ dei Monti, and snuck around, trying to capture the essence of life, a little before sunset on a hot sunny day. The light was bright and harsh – ideal for punchy colors and contrasty images. These are some of the perfect strangers i pointed my lens at.
