For the sixth year I did street photography at the 2017 Taste of Clarkston. I was in the parking lot of the Clarkston News, thanks Don and Jim. Every year I choose a local charity to gove donations to. This year it was DRAW’s turn. When I photograph people I let them know I will send them multiple jpg files from the session. I also let them know that they can make a donation. This year was lighter in past years and we raised $112 for DRAW.
I stand out on the sidewalk and ask people if they are up for a portrait, many decline. I’m much better at getting friends in for some shots. I also look for interesting people that would make a good portrait. For this years, at the end of the session I asked people to give me their best sad sack or deadpan face. I think it is funny that most intrepid it as sad and gave me sad faces. A couple really nailed it.
