I've enjoyed your photography for quite some time.  I wonder how you ask people to take their photo.  Does anyone ever tell you no?  Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.

Thank you. :)

Usually I don't ask first, because I'm trying to catch people in their normal activities, and a posed portrait is a different thing. When I was using a slower point-and-shoot camera and just learning to take pictures, I always asked -- the camera wasn't fast -- and that got me accustomed to taking pictures of people.

I do ask people in certain situations whether I can take their picture, and usually they are pleased. I give them my card and offer to send them a portrait, or if they don't have a computer, I ask for their address and send them a print I order from dA. It's kind of a nice gift, from stranger to stranger.

Yes, some people say no, and I respect that, of course.

Appreciate your comments and questions! :wave:
this is one amazing gallery!
