Street photography isn’t that hard. And especially never as hard as many seem to think. And the true benefit is meeting all nice and beautiful people. As the pair I show you here. I took some portraits of hr, mainly because I really liked her necklace. But they were happy and easygoing. And really liked what I was doing.
I love the true afterthought in peoples’ faces. As this one from a traditional pub in Amsterdam, three weeks ago.
Walked about this last Saturday, had a stop at “7:ans ölhall” (a classic pub i Gothenburg). It’s always nice to meet friendly, open people. He (sorry, didn’t ask for your name) was from Jonkoping, just celebrating a friend’s 60th over the weekend. And he didn’t mind me taking his portrait.
Like to walk on the outside looking in.

No. Don’t mean that the street photographer doesn’t have to give it an effort, because the technique isn’t “up front”. But peoples’ faces seem more natural without the effort to smile or something. Candid photos sometimes show you the pure beauty of humans.
