Street Portraits

One of the biggest change in the way I take pictures when I bought My Leica M8.2 was how easy it was to carry around. Gone are the days when I had to struggle with a zoom lens and another one in my backpack. I now carry a small cloth shoulder bag with some tiny M lenses and an extra battery. Not having equipment get in the way is like a breath of fresh air.

People are also less intimidated by massive professional looking equipment and I am now able to walk up to people easily to ask for their portrait.

These are some of portraits I took in my walkabouts in KLCC recently.

    Hi Hisham. I prefer black ad White as it it allows me to focus on the character I the person without the distraction of colour. Having said that though, many of my more powerful portraits would not work if not in colour. Maybe I’m just in the black and white mood at the moment.
