people - crowd as individuality

Do you like taking pictures of people? Maybe portraits? Or crowd photos? For me this was not a subject for a long time, than, after a discussion with Ratze (he is such a remarkable people photographer! ), I started taking a look at the people too, not only at the buildings. Sometimes I am shy, sometimes I do not post the portraits that I take, if I believe they are too personal. But definitely, the human faces are an infinite story to be explored. In Rome on the other hand, I found it difficult to take photos of individuals: the crowds were so homogenous mass, in a weird and twisted way, united in their goals, that they become a subject for themselves...

  3. I like taking photos of people, portraits mainly. People are just not so keen to be photographed.

  4. It would be interesting taking photos of people around but I too am shy and always hesitate doing that. This photo is great as well as the previous one.

  6. Like most of us, I beleive, we are a bit worried about taking close-ups of people we don't know. The legal aspect may be one thing, but in public places... At least, they should then agree to be pictured (which means "posing") and when you publish on a blog, it's not quite a personal or family buisness. Even some bloggeres don't wish to appear on their own blogs nor on those of others.

    But... you are right, it could lead to very interesting photos!
