Pridefest: Portraits

.
Pridefest (Portrait 1)

People on the street at Pridefest. I ask permission to photograph individual people in public. Most say yes, a few decline, but at Pridefest nobody has a problem with it. Just be polite and friendly.

I'm thinking of Bobbi Lane, my portraits teacher at the Maine Media Workshops, as I write this. I could never have made these pictures without her instruction and inspiration. Best teacher I ever had in my life for anything.

What fabulous portraits. Superb.

Julie said...

Yep. Agree with everyone else. Top notch portraits here, Bob. Portraits are such a challenge, especially AFTER you ask permission. People have such a need to pose!!

You were a great student and I still say that you are the Pridefest photographer extraordinaire!
