Go Where You Don’t Expect

by Mark Forman on March 20, 2017

Yesterday I dropped my son off at the bus station intending to head into mid-town to shoot some photos. I realized I wasn't far from a busy market area near one of the local universities. The area is insane at night but relatively mellow on a Sun. afternoon but knew there would be shots waiting just the same. It is easy to become a creature of habit and keep returning to the spots you know and like. It's good to get out of your comfort zone and explore even if it seems counter-intuitive. On that note this shot is also kind of unusual for me. Normally I just shoot candid in the moment-this was an in the moment non-candid. Spotted this young lady with the great tattoo inside of a tiny shop. There was no way I could casually mosey in there without freaking her out. So I asked her of the tattoo was real, she replied "yes" and I asked her if it would be ok to take a picture. You know the rest.
