This is one of my efforts to take 100 portraits of strangers – taken in York, UK. She was very friendly and helpful, seemed like she was very used to being in front of the camera. Was also very nice light for the first time in a long time, nice high clouds!

    I’m not suprised she’d used to being in front of the cameras,look at those eyes,how did you approach her may I ask?

  • Thank you, and yeah!

    She was shopping with her mum, I saw her once but didn’t get up the courage but then passed by again later in town and thought I couldn’t miss the chance twice. I just asked if I could take her photo as I’m trying to take 100 of strangers and she instantly said yeah and asked what I wanted her to do… very easy and friendly.

    Great portrait. Very expressive look. Excellent work!

  • Thank you! I wish I’d saved this one until last – all stranger portraits since have been relatively rubbish!
