The Eyes of A Stranger - Street Portraits
Making a good portrait of a complete stranger is a challenge that all serious photographers must eventually face. It is an acquired skill.
It's one thing to take a picture of a pedestrian or stranger on the sly, and quite another to actually make a portrait of them.
We can choose to engage them or not, but each encounter should result in a positive experience for the subject and the photographer.
The desired end result is a strong photograph that does reveal the brief connection that we shared.
The eyes don't lie. Nor does the camera.
