A street photographer’s dialogue:
Street Photographer: “Excuse me, can I make a portrait of you?”
Subject: “Ahm…yes…yes, generally yes….but why?”
Street Photographer: “I’m a street photographer from Nuremberg, I like to document everyday life in the streets and meet interesting people, like you!”
Subject: “Ok, that’s interesting, but why did you pick me?”
Street Photographer: “Oh, I like your style. And you radiate a kindness that I like to capture. Great smile!”
Subject: “But I’m eating….it will look stupid, what shall I do with my box?”
Street Photographer (already snapping away): “Don’t worry, you look great, I’ll show you in a second!”
Subject (quite relaxed): “Ok, can’t really imagine that.”
Street Photographer, showing the back LCD of the camera: “Check it out, I really like this photo. Great street portrait of you!”
Subject (smiling): “Yes, it really is a nice picture. What are you gonna do with it?”
Street Photographer: “I have a street photography blog, where I post some of my photos. Would you mind if I post yours?”
Subject: “No, that’s ok!”
Street Photographer (smiling): “Here is my card with my website, check it out if you like. Thanks for letting me make your portrait, was great talking to you! Have a great day!
Subject (smiling): “Well, you too”
Street Photographer and subject continue their ways…..
Have a great weekend!
