Today was our (my group’s) 2nd shoot out on the streets of Manchester, stopping and bothering the public and asking to take photos of them.
It didn’t go so well.
We ended up with 11 images of different groups/couples and probably 2 or 3 that might go forward to our final presentation. The first shoot was so much more successful but at least its all over now.
I don’t think I was in a very friendly mood.
What I have learned from this task is that I’m actually much more confident talking to the public than I realised. The majority of people are nice, friendly and enjoy the company of others. Even if you are a complete stranger in a bad mood.
(Just remembered I was also very cold. And being cold makes me grumpy.)
“I have disdain for calling what photographers do outside fashion week “street style photography”. I don’t know any woman who slips her neon yellow, body con maxi dress to go down the street. It’s non-representitive of how people really dress on a daily basis and creates a false sense of essentialism for regular fashion consumers.”—Alicia Hannah Naomi, Sea of Ghosts (via asitshould)
