At some point my new-ish friend G. asked me if I could take a few photographs of him and the woman who owns the studio where he takes classes. I did. I wasn't entirely sure what the purposes of the photographs were. The woman was definitely strong in mind and spirit, but not overly good at explaining her vision. She was, shall we say, a bit prickly. To be fair, she was also in a rush.
While the shots of the studio owner were lacking, I do think I took a few good shots of G. I think it does, for me, have a lot to do with rapport, and whether or not I have any of it with the subject.
