The photo workshop offered some helpful tips as I prepare to fly on Friday to Italy for two weeks. The focus, however, was on making contact with individuals before taking their picture. Useful when Emily and Abby join me, but not during that first week when I’ll be snapping away at strangers who don’t know they are a subject.
I wonder if I dare go up to someone I don’t know and ask to photograph them? Probably not. It would detract from that first week of solitude.
