I’ve mentioned before how difficult I find it to be to ask strangers if I can take their photo. Today I came across a post at JPG Mag about Danny Santos II, a photographer in Singapore, who managed to get over his fear of approaching strangers and complete a personal project of photographing 100 strangers on the street. Check out his work; despite his own trepidation, he’s succeeded in getting some great street portraits.
In general, I don’t do a lot of street photography. One of these days I do hope to get over my own fear of approaching strangers and completing a similar 100 portraits project. Until then, I’ll just continue with the surreptitious approach to street photography, as seen here on the streets of San Francisco.
