I have been shooting the street for a while and finding myself never been close enough with people to take a proper portrait. I will always have some sort of excuses to talk myself out of it. Therefore, I end up with a big fear of portrait photography, still. One of the reasons is because of my manual lens which prevents me from capturing the right focus. But again it is another excuse. My ex-boss used to tell me, it’s not just because of the language barrier which prevents you from making an effort to communicate but the fear of talking in another language does.
So this is an attempt for myself to overcome and get rid of that fear. I will try to keep shooting every day and updating for the next couple weeks to finish the challenge of 100 portraits of strangers.
