At the tents

coat -- from MILK store in L.A.
shoes -- Tashkent
cardigan -- Helmut Lang

The one thing I like about the photography in the above photo is that I had her look away from the camera.  What do you think?  Do you like street fashion pictures better when someone looks right into the lens, or away from it, which could lend itself to more creative artistry?

Such gorgeous pictures! I love the girl's coat and cardigan!

Although I love that she's looking away from pictures, I personally prefer street fashion pictures' subjects facing the camera. That is probably because I lack the self-confidence to do so myself, and so associate 'looking-away' photos with fashion bloggers who photograph themselves.

Does that make sense? *insert embarassed face*

I love the looking away! It makes you think that she doesn't know the image is being taken - and somehow that makes it better! Haha I say go the "look away" look :-)

I think looking away is better. Looking straight at the camera can make the person look awkward and thus make the photo in general awkward. Looking away is also a bit more creative and causes the shot to appear "spontaneous"

I think I prefer it when they are facing the camera :)

Sometimes the "looking away" photos look so staged but she/you perfected this shot. Its a great photo and she has a wonderful look. Love the shoes and the jacket!

that second look is divine...

i can't decide on the shots... i love the idea of the 'captured moment' where the subject is looking away best, as long as it looks real! but there's something so confident about looking straight into the camera. and you know the subjects must be confident to pull of some of the things they wear!

First off, I wanted to THANK everyone for their reply.

Brigadeiro--so I take it you like the aura of confidence looking straight into the camera produces for you? I think I understand. Score 1 for LOOK IN.

Annabelle--score 1 for LOOK AWAY

Claudia--score 2 for LOOK AWAY

Thao N--flexible creativity for looking away. Score 3 for LOOK AWAY

Manja--score 2 for LOOK IN

vidalia--I take it that if the shot doesn't look staged when they look away, then LOOK AWAY is your preferred choice--it's a contingency matter for you. I'm not going to label your response thought, since the contingency might not be met.

Eric--score 3 for LOOK IN

Anonymous--score 4 for LOOK IN

Anonymous--score 5 for LOOK IN

coco+kelley--undecided....

Sarah--no comment on the matter.

So far, as of Friday 10:55 am London Time, it appears as if more people prefer looking into the camera, though most people appear to appreciate the spontaneity of when someone looks away.

i have to agree. having someone looking into the camera gives the photography more life. they exudes much more emotions and show their confidence in their dressing.
so score 6 for look in

I'm torn; I think people look great when they're shot doing what they naturally do, which sometimes means looking away from the camera. But with street photography, there's a tacit agreement between the viewer/photographer and the model, which takes the form of eye contact that says "sure, look at me. I'm here for you."

That's what I think, anyway.
