I love shooting candids of people. Despite shooting in busy locales, in my camera’s eye only the subject exists, and I get a quick peek into their lives. Most are of people I meet during my travels, and I generally never ask their names. A few quick clicks and we move on, drifting away quickly in this river of our Samsara.
And since I have not had prior interactions with the subjects, I only see them in this particular place, in this instant. And I get to freeze that moment in time. In a sense, the image I capture, reflects my own state of mind at that unique point in time, projected onto the subjects. Never to be repeated again!
Seldom do I shoot pics of friends. See, I know them personally, and our past interactions subconsciously influence the poses and emotions I capture. Nonetheless, I love to shoot portraits of friends, particularly if they are aspiring models!
Meet Victoria! She rules! 😀
