Lately I’ve been inspired by people who can take photographs of the more subtle, un-art-directed moments and still create a really rich narrative around them. I think My Suitcase Heart and Sandra Juto are great examples of this. I want to be more skilled at capturing the more candid, real-life moments, in a really beautiful way. This is me practicing.

I think part of capturing these slices of life comes down to having a certain amount of confidence behind the camera. Most photographers I know feel most comfortable hidden behind their lens – but when I pull my chunky camera out in public I get almost self-conscious.

What do you think? Do you feel comfortable behind your camera in real-life scenarios?
