STREETS...

I love the art of street photography. Shooting street portraits is a form of communication that is often non-verbal. Working with people on the street I prefer using a 50mm lens to get closer to the subject by creating an open situation to get a better personal interaction.

Getting the right image of a person on your camera is not only a matter of technical aspects. More important is to capturing an expression by just shooting one aspect of a person in one image that creates the right display. Meaning that any human emotion by looking at the picture you experience universal language. The photos are then more visual and apparent. 


I often use visual thinking skills to become one whole with the subject part that I am photographing to receive the person in a better way. It takes some knowledge and daring to work on the streets.


Still, street photography can be social, exciting and refreshing. Meeting people and interact is always nice. During shooting, I always give the attention to people that I am fully working in the background.
