These are just portraits of a people I passed or they passed me when I was wondering on city streets.
I have no knowledge who they are and what were they doing or thinking the moment I took the picture.
But there is one thing common among all of them, for some reason they become interesting for me the
moment they passed. And that interest triggered my brain to make me raise my camera to my eyes,
frame the shot and press the shutter.
Shooting candids is very challenging. Particularly portraits. You do not have control on the environment,
light, you have split second to react to situation. But it also very rewarding, since when you're able
to shoot story telling image despite all these obstacles, it makes you feel very satisfied.
My major challenge in this gallery is to show character of the people I was taken pictures of.
I really would like to see you comments positive and critique, since this is the only way for me
to know if you like the pictures. I also hope you will vote for the gallery if you like it,
so others will be able to see it too.
