Capturing Cultural Portraits

Slide Show   Previous    Next

One of my favorite places to shoot on trips are the markets. They offer soooo much variety and wonderful opportunities and when approached well, can allow for some wonderful photography. I always try to take a positive state of mind when walking through the markets and consistently smile and say Hi in the local language. A little abuse of my language skills, like saying Nee How in Chinese, sometimes is advantageous as I get some good reactions. I noticed this lady roasting chestnuts and was trying to communicate with her with what I learned on the was a failure for my ability to communicate, but the end result was this hardy laugh and smile. So...self abuse sometimes works!
