Chance Encounters

Never seen them before! We see most strangers just once. They disappear from our memory in a while. What remains are thoughts like "Should've talked to her" or "Why didn't I get a shot of that guy!?"
My dislike of regrets prompted this collection -- "Chance Encounters, framed"

Hi-res

Hi-res
A man at my favorite cafe. A fancy girl on a street -- and a living fashion advertisement. And some faces end up in my studio for more portraits.

Most people I photograph know that they are in the spotlight. The few who are too busy to notice often provide stronger "local flavor".

All too often I have time for only a frame or two, and ,with luck, the portraits turn out. Low light levels ("available darkness") are often a problem, hence my preference for studio.

A single good photo is the most usual result, whether a single frame or a whole roll were shot.

Even some of my friends qualify as random encounters, for their schedules are utterly unpredictable.
