Up Close And Personal

Friends  are easy to come by, but maintaining that relationship is another story.

One of my goals this year is to take more portraits of friends and strangers. Strangers? Yes! What’s the worst they can say? No? Well I’ll take my chances

With photography it allows you to get acquainted with so many people who will eventually become your friends or even best friends. One of my good friends who happens to be a photographer once told me, in order to take ones portrait, its easier to build a friendship with them first, in that way they will be more comfortable with you taking their picture. Apart from photography, most times you realize you both have much more in common and can learn from each other.

Here’s a few shots with some of my photography friends, good friends if I may add(lol).

  1. Konyca I love this idea. I can’t wait to see it flourish. It’s nice to look at the timeline of friendship and see how much you’ve grown together and enhanced each others lives. I love making new friends and expanding my social circle, it adds so much to the spice of life!

  2. True friendship is never lost. When you have it you know it. We may not speak on a daily basis. However, when we do, it’s just like we were together yesterday.
    My dad says “you only get one true friend in life”, well I happen to have been blessed with loads of true blues.
    As a great friend once said “Choose your audience carefully, and be mindful of who sits in your balcony.”
