This is not quite a candid as it seems to be. I’m always cautious when photographing artists as a lot can be very touchy about people “reproducing” their work. Because of this I asked permission to take this gentleman’s photograph and he was more than happy to oblige, which meant I could take my time and get a shot I’m happy with.
I know many people will say “he was in a public place, you were legally allowed to photograph him and didn’t need to ask” but as true as that is, it doesn’t stop it being anti-social. I’ll never take a shot of someone who has made it clear they don’t want me to.
