My least favorite assignment in Italy was to do street shooting. This might not sound bad, but I hate taking pictures of people, and that is a main part of street shooting. A lot of my shooting was done at the hip or with the wireless remote so it wasn’t too obvious that I was taking pictures of strangers. After the doing the assignment…I hated my pictures so the for the next assignment we had a choice to do street shooting again or abstract. I gave it another go to hopefully get some better shots and this was one of them. Although it is from behind I’m pretty proud of this picture. It’s one of my favorites. It was taken in the residential part of Venice where not many tourists venture to, so I think it has a very real, believable, slice of life feel to it.
