photoblog image Non conformist

Non conformist

A fellow photographer on the night. I didn't even have to direct him much. He sure was a poser. And he got some great shots long after my battery had died. Maybe I could beg some off him and trade with this picture.

E Etomi: He does look like Robbie doesn't he. Thanks
Like I said.... the best is yet to come, street photography is cool, when you go all out for it. Here are some fun tips that have heped me in the past smile

1. A good pair of "Sneaks" for runing and making a very fast get-a-way.

2. Self-defence knowledge.

3. A. sock filled with my spare change.

4. Don't tell anyone that I have a taszer lol

5. Pepper Spray and a siren.

lol... just kidding by the way, all you really need is confidence and a warm and inviting smile, which i'm sure you have.
E Etomi: Lol! Thanks M. Skee.

What a poser - fortunately for you. He must be used to posing to get his pictures pictured smile

Great shot. I have read skee's comment - he is wrong tongue You need to have a big personality (why Suby is picking up models so easy), a spare battery and back-up memory.
E Etomi: I'll let you know when I can go Check!Check!Check!
