if you could see the full-resolution photo, you'd see that he is indeed reading a play or a script

Thank you for the ribbon and great comments! By the way, did you notice the guy on the left? He is obviously a bit nosey, I guess that's why his nose got broken off ))

Roz, thank you! Yes, it was a completely candid shot. Depending on circumstances, I do it in different ways. If there is room, I can step back and take a shot from a distance. Or I can take it from my belly, pretending I am "chimping" my photos. Or take photos of something else in the room for a while, and then make a very quick turn and a snap of what I am really after :). Or, if nothing else works, just do it, and then smile )). In this case, there was room, so I was good 5-7 meters away from him. And he was deep in thought. So it was easy, he didn't see me doing it. Choosing the correct exposure and post-processing was a bit hard, sun was shining into the window and so the window was super-bright, rendering him almost a silhouette


thankyou so much Lev .. it is always good to learn from the 'master' .. i do believe that 'street' photography takes a certain sort of mindset .. a confidence and ability to get in the zone .. which you seem to have in spades ... i would love to be a fly on the wall and watch you in action .. would be a wonderful learning experience .. and btw .. you are rocking that oly omd em1 .. gotta love the ability to flip out the lcd screen .. i bet that helps with sort of shot ... :)

this is an awesome take on the challenge .. and i always love your black and white edits ..
question .. was this a candid shot .. :)

edit to add .. i often want to take candid shots in public .. but dont want to intrude on ppl's privacy .. especially in a setting like this .. so i usually dont ..
how do you go about taking candids but not feel intrusive .. it could boil down to a confidence thing .. if you feel confident about what you are doing then maybe you are more able to get what you want ... ??
