Portland Street Photography

Street photography isn't my "thing." It's actually something I've never even attempted in the few years I've been shooting, it's never even really crossed my mind. So, spurred on by a "challenge" posted to a photography group on Facebook, I got up nice and early, packed a bag full of lenses and headed out for the streets.

There's something very odd about photographing people going about their normal lives. I think the first thought I had was "what if this person doesn't want to be photographed?" My second thought was "Oh well..." Nobody seemed to care though. A few even smiled after realizing I took their photo. Most never knew. 

Over all it was a fun and educational experiment, something I will certainly have to go back out and try again - being more assertive for sure. 

There are two "projects" that this exercise has lead me towards: First a random portrait project asking random people around Portland for their portrait; the second being a more extensive street project. I'll curate a collection and offer prints from my "prints" galleries.

Anyways, take a look at a few photos below and let me know what you think!

I'll be posting a few to Facebook and Instagram over the next few weeks:
