People of LA Art Show 2016

LA Art Show coverage continues today with one of my favorite sets.  I love to shoot portraits, but I'll be honest, I can get a bit shy.  I rarely just walk up to someone and say, "Hey, can I take your portrait."  But as an official photographer for The LA Art Show I have an excuse.  "Hey, I'm shooting for The LA Art Show, can I take your photo?"  This gets people excited.  I also happen to know a lot of people in the art scene and that helps, and then I'm sneaky so I can usually snap off a few candids without someone noticing as well.  The candid may not seem like too big a deal in this day and age of cell phone cameras and auto-focus, but I shoot everything manually so I have to be stealthy but also maintain my patience for the right moment.  Over four days of the show I think I capture a rad cross section of people.  You be the judge.
