Girl with Flowers: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 135mm f/2L

The weather let up a little this afternoon, so my friend, Mike, and I drove over to Pike Place Market for some people photography.  I love that place, as it’s always teaming with colorful characters, cute kids, and great food!  I hope you enjoy these photographs from today.

    I’m really liking your people pics mahesh! Do you carry around a business card that you can give people you take pics of so they can see them?? I know they’d love to see what they look like ‘caught’ in the moment.

    Beautiful work once again…

    Great pics here, Mahesh! You really have captured some great characters. I am curious if you had these folks sign a waiver before you posted them online…or is that only needed if you try to sell them?

    I love the lack of posing and the spontaneous expression. Good question, can the “models” see the pictures?

    Thanks, everyone! Rick, since these images were taken at a public forum, there is no need to obtain a waiver, as far as I know. I suppose, in the future, I can hand out my card and tell the “models” the photos can be viewed on my website.
