    Wonderful portraits. You really have captured the human quality in these. I particularly like the ones of the man in the blue shirt and the woman in the red blouse. The light on his face is great and his expression of seriousness is outstanding. The woman has a whimsical look that is hard to read. How many photos did you take of each person to get the best?

      Thanks! The number of pictures per person really varies, but on average it’s probably somewhere between five and ten. I like to spend a little time with people if I can, but obviously it depends on the situation. In markets, for instance, you sometimes have to work very quickly, as people are busy earning a living or doing their shopping. Sometimes the first picture is actually the best, other times I need a few frames to capture the right expression, or find the best composition.

        Thank you for the detailed answer. I agree, sometime it is necessary to shoot rapidly.
        I went back to your blog and looked some more. I’m really impressed with your portraits. I look forward to seeing more.
