Passage to India – Shooting Calcutta – Part 2

Working people and street portraits.

Although street photographers seem to decry any non-candid shots, I find that eye contact often helps the photograph. Although I never posed a shot, I would indicate to the person that I wished to take their photo and then I would take another in a candid moment when they had forgotten about me. That way I got the best of both to choose from, as seen below.

    Thanks Denny, I’ve learned that to take good photographs you really can’t just do a hit and run. You have to commit to a place for a week or so to begin to get the feeling.
