Four Corners: Bloor & Avenue

I set myself a challenge today; go and get some street portraits. I decided to add a theme by choosing a busy intersection and getting a portrait at each corner then combine them like this.

 

Each frame corresponds to the corner the shot was taken; north west for top left, etc...

 

I just asked the first person who looked interesting if I could shoot them and everyone said yes which was encouraging.

 

I tried to make the camera as low-key as possible by using a 50mm prime, not some big zoom contraption.

 

Overall I'm very pleased with the series, I may upload one or two individual ones that I like, and I think it's an approach I'll be trying again for another series.
