Along with the new found interest in black and white photography, another thing that came along is people and portraits. B & W, I have discovered, is an apt media to depict people and life. Here is one of my first attempts. As I was watching a bunch of kids out on a picnic, some of them moved away from the rest into a small open area and started playing. Luckily they did not notice some one with a fancy instrument pointed at them. A big challenge with shooting people is that once they see someone pointing a camera at them, they tend to get concious and withdraw.
