    The street portraits that I mentioned in my blog thread have been on the back-burner for the last couple of weeks, so the latest roll to be developed has some shots I took a month ago.
    This one is my favourite - Mark and Tracey in Morecambe.

    A fine portrait. They look like real people, unlike most media photos.

    It is indeed and I like the delicate engagement and hint of a smile there. I also really like the posing / composition: that slight hint of curvature from each other.

    I am finding these street shots great fun but quite a challenge, as it's hard for me, with my lack of experience, to direct the poses and I rarely feel as though I can keep people for much longer than it takes to make one portrait. So I am always glad when people are natural enough not to look like it's a police mugshot.
    I am racking up the experience now though, with about 50 in the bag.
