"I don't like to ask people to pose unnaturally, 'say cheese' and awkwardly smile for the camera"
camera: FujiFilm X-T10
lenses: Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 and Fujinon 18mm f/2/0
After many years of practice, failures and frustration, I now have a stronger sense of confidence as a street photographer. This is due to practicing the art of patience.
Our daily environment is a work of art. The canvas is full of presets. I've learned to stop, listen, observe and most of all, enjoy life with my camera in hand! I find personal pleasure in taking time to notice simple things we as humans normally take for granted. Sunshine gleaming through a window, the lines shadows make on concrete and candid emotions of people in the streets are themes I enjoying photographing. Street photography taught me to become the observer; the invisible man. I don't force things to happen. I don't like to ask people to pose unnaturally, 'say cheese' and awkwardly smile for the camera. I find that our existence is much more than enough to create art with.
There is beauty in diversity and I want to capture that for others to enjoy.
I am a street photographer using film and digital formats. I enjoy listening to good music, traveling, quiet time & peace.
