taking peoples pictures…

May 10th, 2009 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

Other peoples portraits aren’t really my “forte”…  not that i don’t , occasionally, succeed in getting some decent portraits made..  Its just that i tend to get immensely stressed at the prospect of photographing people.  I myself become extremely uncomfortable whenever someone points a camera in my direction (somewhat ironic considering my vast colletion of self-portraits.. but in turn it probably explains why most pictures of me ARE selfportraits).     Anyway, i suppose i’m too sympathetic to the plight of those i point my camera at, and that somehow makes me uneasy about the fact that im putting people in this situation. Which is dumb, because in most cases i’ve actually been hired to do this…So they did ask for it.  Anyway, i’m really selling myself as a portrait photog here, no doubt..

Anyway. While digging thru my archives the other day, i noticed quite a few portraits that i’ve taken, that i’ve never shared on flickr.. figured i’d gather a bunch of them together here, just for the hell of it .  And also because after not updating this blog thing for 3 months, i figured i’d better make a BIG post :p
