Portraits from my time in China
Spent Saturday morning at the Farmer's Market at the Embarcadero in San Francisco. It was in an effort to work with my camera and get the kinks out for my upcoming trip to China. It was also an effort to make myself comfortable photographing in a very public setting. That's usually pretty intimidating to me and something I continually need to work on.
Now this is easier than it sounds for me. But I need to make it easy if I'm going to spend time in China photographing on the streets. It'd be a shame to go all that way and not get comfortable quickly.
Today it got easier as I went along. There were no weird looks, a bunch of smiles and a general acceptance that I was there to photograph and wasn't hurting anyone. A good day all around.
A new year is upon us. Where, oh where, did 2013 go?
Here's to you and yours and a great 2014. May your photographic endeavors be fruitful.
