Need something?

I’ve become hesitant

I am not proud of admitting it but yes, I am. I have become hesitant. The picture here is a candid shot. It’s not candid because I wanted it to be, it’s candid because I was hesitant to go ask him if I could take his picture. This wasn’t the case two years ago.

May be it was because I was afraid that he would deny it. May be I was afraid of getting a “no” as an answer. May be I was a little too much aware of the crowd around me but yes, I was hesitant. I should not let this take over me. I should be casual and open minded as I was in my approach to street photography earlier. I must.

Anyway, enough of my ranting. Here’s the shot.

Need something? An old man at the railway station.

Technicalities

I shot this on my Nikon D3300 using the nikkor prime 50mm lens. F/1.8, ISO320, 1/100sec shutter speed. Processed it in photoshop using Nik silver efex. Rather than the raw corrections, more of the plugin was used in post processing.
