Inspiration: Bill Cinningham

Yesterday after much encouragement from my cousin Isaac I went to see the Bill Cunningham New York movie and I was blown away by his honesty, modesty and passion for photography. He is constantly working day and night; on the streets in New York, at runway shows and at glitzy fashion events. I always feel self conscious about photographing strangers but he has it down to a fine art.

I took this photo last year and it is one of my favs. I am constantly looking at the way people dress. I would love to take photos of people on the street! I just have to be brave enough.

  1. Nikau, the same with me. I'm thinking of taking photos of people on the streets for so long already.
    We should do that together to be more brave :)))
