This guy was great – such a char­ac­ter! What I re­ally picked up from Dougie dur­ing the day was how he in­ter­acts with the peo­ple he pho­tographs. He’s al­ways got some bit of ban­ter to swap, like “I like your dog!” or “That’s a great bag!” which helps to put peo­ple at their ease. I could also see how use­ful it is to keep go­ing back to a favourite lo­ca­tion be­cause you get to know many of the char­ac­ters you meet – and you soon find out which peo­ple like be­ing pho­tographed and which don’t. If the in­ter­ac­tion is there, you feel more con­fi­dent as a pho­tog­ra­pher, and your sub­ject is more re­laxed.
