8 Feb 2006 Refusal

8 Feb 2006 "Refusal"

Street portraits are not always easy...
Leica R7, Leitz 50mm f/2 Summicron-R, Ilford HP5 Plus

These two images were shot at the same day of 1994,
12 years later I have much less "refusals",
maybe because I have a more effective way of asking
or maybe because I look (and I am) much more older...

I'm curious how you ask people this. I always seem to shoot from a distance, but that way I will never get the compelling pictures you make, with visible interaction. If you want to tell, I'd be happy.

Antonis, you're great !!!

Camera shy inded - but makes for an excellent portrait just the same !
Guest 09-Feb-2006 18:25
Still a very effective shot!

Strong expressions Antonis.
Very nice shot! v
Gary Winters09-Feb-2006 03:12
Or maybe because now you're fearless. Still a good shot. Maybe even better.

I have too gotten a few hands shots. Well done image.

It still works well and the fellow on the left is darned interesting by himself.

It is nice to know that you get refusal and still continue. This is the biggest issue for me...fear of asking. I love taking people pictures but hate rejection. I have a few nice pictures but with no release forms...darn!

hope you dont get into trouble:-))
James Lundy08-Feb-2006 23:26
How is it that you ask differently? Different body language? Tone of voice? Or how you word the question?
Dan Chusid08-Feb-2006 23:09
Must be the gun in your belt...
J. Scott Coile08-Feb-2006 22:47
Must be a star :) I love it!

It seems to me that the other guy is mad, if I look at his face. Nice picture, Antonis!

Yes, this refusal, made it perfect...Indeed, they are not easy, but you 've become a proffesional in this kind of shooting. Hope you didn't have any trouble with the guy...:)

Somehow it's made an even better photo than if it had been candid. Excellent.
