If you're photographing in color, you show the color of their cloths- If you use black and white, you will show the color of their soul. There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for want we see is what we are. Photography is more than a medium for actual communication of ideas. It is a creative art and silent music...The key to talking brilliant photographs is the aim the trust of the subject. It involves spending time bonding with the person. I have to be a photographer, first and a part psychologist...! The fact that the camera could make people do things that they wouldn't do otherwise and behave in ways that they wouldn't normally is incredible. Photography is silent music
