Can you find the photographer in this Portland street portrait? I was awfully close with my 25mm F/1.8 prime attached to my Olympus PEN-F. The image is not cropped. I took this photo with 1/80 sec and a wide aperture of F/2 to throw everything behind the face out of focus. ISO was 200.

Another super friendly person I met on the streets of Portland last weekend. I just asked him for his portrait. He said “sure – why not?” While I snapped a few shots we had a nice chat. Not all that difficult! Go out and try it!

Have a super Sunday!
