Stealth portraiture

20120709-071457.jpg I’m trying to get out of my comfort zone. At work, in my studies, and photography too. In fact, photography is the safest place to experiment, because nobody really needs to know about any lack of success. Of course, I advocate constantly about not shying away from “failures”, because they represent experimentation. Not all pictures are going to work, the only “unsuccess” is to not try something interesting and, occasionally, difficult for you.

I have not been doing a lot of street photography lately, which includes stealth portraits like this one. It’s not only good practice technically, it expands my comfort zone. This young man is a very interesting subject because he looks like a completely different person from different angles. I like the thoughtful, abstracted expression on his face.
