Old stuff

Environmental Portraits

I guess I misunderstood the assignment and tried to get some new environmental portraits. I have to admit that for me it is really difficult to ask people to allow me to take their portraits. I usually make myself "invisible" and do street photography in a more subtle way. Anyway, all these portraits were taken in one afternoon, just walking on St. Catherine and coming back on Sherbrooke Av. I asked every-single person you see , which I guess was the first obstacle to overcome, being the second producing a decent shot with just 10 seconds of the people's time.
