Portraiture . Module 404 .
We had a week off and i have been out numerous times to shoot portraits for module 404 assignment “Portraiture on location” . I have also been researching new portraiture techniques and ideas that fit into the module and to improve my photographic skills . I love getting out and meeting great new and genuine people , this week i have spoke to a lot of fantastic individuals and learnt a lot . Below are a few of the shots i got this week .

Street Photography Portrait with a metz flash . After i got this picture I was talking with this man for about 10 minutes and allowed me to take other portraits as well .

He said ” it will come to no good, there is too many of the little blighters ” .
