60 Seconds Portraits - Stranger No. 1

Stimulated by the street portraits from photographers like Danny Santos II and Gerald Emming I decided that I need to learn doing good street portraits too. After my first shots I can tell you that it is quite scary to ask complete strangers on the street to pose for you for just a few seconds. But I assume, that once I get over it, I will get into the flow and it will be a thrill to get it going.

The picture below is of Stranger no. 1. It is not perfect, but one needs to start somewhere. (If Stranger No. 1 would like to give me another chance, please contact me via the contact page.)
