Street Portrait

This fine lady caught my eye at the weekend at Red Road, Glasgow. And rather than shoot my usual candid style.  I just had to ask her permission to capture a portrait of her. She kindly agreed.

There are times when i really need the eye contact to make a more compelling photo, rather than shoot candid. And asking for permission was the correct choice in this instance.

Another point is normally when I take portrait head shots, I would use my Canon 85mm F1.8, but on that day I used my Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG, as it is my favourite lens these past few months. For it’s image quality, sharpness and it’s response.
