Just out of curiosity, do you ask these people whether you can take their picture before you do? It seems like sometimes you do, but sometimes you don’t (like this one). Personally, I think posing for a picture is unnatural, often it does not capture a ‘look’ or a moment as well.
Also, you seem to be quite a talented photographer, seem to always capture the essence.
I ask beforehand 99% of the time. I asked on this shot but I told her to not stop what she was doing. i don’t want posed party shots that you see in all the magazines, i want it to be a little August Sander-ish
Good look because she has elements of tough and child. The coat and printed scarf say woman. The boots and spider web stockings say tough; and she looks quite young and petite naturally, but the tiny purse nails the little girl achtype.
