Continuing on in my new direction of shooting more street photography, I found this gentleman enjoying the unseasonably warm day sharing his charisma with all who passed.

“Street Photography” is interesting in that it happens somewhat quickly. Not saying you need to run down the street necessarily, but you don’t have a lot of time to capture your images once you spot a subject you like. Most people aren’t comfortable having their picture taken, with some covering up, some getting annoyed and some starting to ham it up for the camera. I prefer more natural visages and emotions, so it is important to me to have my exposure settings all ready to go, simple need to acquire focus and hit the shutter release.

I also find it a good composition exercise in that it’s typically important to have that final image vision in your head, before you bring the camera up to eye level and draw attention to yourself and your subject.
