Street Portrait - Love Conquers All

A Face In The Crowd

I met this young lady while photographing the Pride parade. I asked her if I could take her picture. She agreed and asked me to "take a really good one."

A few seconds later this is the image that I had in my camera. I think that it turned out quite well.

It's a delightful experience when someone agrees to let you take their photograph. They become a value partner in the creative process. 

Images like this mean more to me than photographs of buildings and sunsets. They represent human interaction, a cooperative effort between the photographer and the subject. When that interaction works, it's a heck of a lot of fun.

Camera: Sony A7RII
Lens:     Sony FE 85mm f/1.8

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
