Street Portrait

When I shoot for a client I'm usually pretty comfortable meeting and chatting with my new subject. I am a people person...I enjoy connecting with new and interesting people. When I'm on the street with a camera I struggle to ask someone if I can take their picture. It's not easy to approach a stranger, and I will break out in a sweat at the thought! About a week ago I saw this guy playing his accordion. I thought he looked cool so I decided to go for it. I asked him if I could take his picture. Of course he was more than happy, and I felt great that I had faced my fear and made some nice images. I had also now met a nice chap by the name of Aaron Watson...a musician here in Victoria.
