Street Photography – Nottingham 11/3/14
Thought I’d set myself a new goal; tackling street photography. On the face of it it sounds very simple and straight forward doesn’t it? And I’m sure that it is possible to walk around surreptitiously capturing images unbeknownst to the suspecting public particularly with a lovely long lens. But unless you happen to be in one of the big cities like London, where tourists with cameras are at every turn, people tend to be a bit suspicious of someone aiming a camera lens at them. And unaccustomed as I am to approaching complete strangers to ask to take their picture, this is to be my challenge over the coming weeks. On my first adventure I accompanied my good friend and fellow photographer, Yvonne Lishman – for a bit of moral support and all that! Here are the results of my endeavours from yesterday.
