Tag Archives: photographing strangers


Tom tells me I should take more photos of people. He’s right, of course and it is even something I have been thinking about for a while. The problem is that I feel very self-conscious of taking photos of strangers and Tom hates having his picture taken about as much as I do.

So, what to do? Well, I’m not sure but I’m definitely going to be thinking about it and considering it as something that I need to solve. I like photographing people, especially friends, so maybe I need to take the camera more often in social situations. ‘Candid’-style portraits have always been my favourite and I’ve taken some pretty good ones of pals even when they know I’ll be photographing them. But taking pictures of strangers just seems so weird, you know?
