My background in photography has mainly been portrait photography both on location, in the studio, with flash, and without flash. However, I’ve been following street photographers online for several years now and I have dabbled a little in the genre a few times. Over the last month or so I have really taken on making street portraits. I’ve combined street photography with my photography background, and I must say, doing street portraits has brought a fresh of breath air to photography for me. I have already met and photographed so many interesting people. I’ve been able to experiment with a few different types of films and processes and I think I have found my niche. I really like shooting with Fomapan 400 film and using a flash to illuminate my subject. I use a diffuser on the flash to soften the light a bit and I prefer to get in as close as I feel my subject will allow. Of course, at times there are those portraits where I feel I need to get a little bit of the scene around my subject. As this year comes to a close, I will be publishing a 2017 Street Portraits zine in early 2018. Be on the lookout!
