Hastings Portraits (new)
It's quite a thing stopping people in the street or anywhere else in public and asking them for a portrait. I'm really only just learning to do it. It's completely different to asking people at events if they would like their portrait taken - generally people are used to seeing photographers at events and much of the time, welcome it. I decided to bite the bullet and start taking portraits of people in Hastings & St Leonard's, where I have lived since last year.
The first three are portraits taken with my Nikon SLR and the bottom one is with my iPhone - as I didn't have my SLR on me when I saw these beautiful ladies. John was perhaps the easiest to ask for a portrait as he came and sat at my table outside the wonderful Cafe Kassa, giving us the chance to introduce ourselves and chat to each other.
