Howdy. forum!

My name is Nikita and I am 22 y.o. amateur photographer from Moscow, Russia.
I`m enjoing makin photos for 7 years already and I really love how you can capture connections between other people with your camera. Also I`m a big fan of Georgy Pinkhasov`s photos and I try to chase the light like he does.
As for my goals – I just want to bring some thoughts to other people and maybe make the world a better place by doing that.

P.S. Thank you Eric for your advices in conquering the fear in street photography – it helped me a lot!
P.P.S. Sorry for bad english if it is so – I`m not very good in it.

Hi Nikita,

I like the contrasting styles of people and the ambiguous setting in #2. But you lose some intimacy by taking the photograph from a high angle. I would have gotten down low in this one.

#3 is excellent. I love the central couple, the onlookers, and the people who are lost in their own world. Great capture.

I like the direction your work is going. Nice choices of places to see people and get photos. I like the silhouettes in the last photo, and the way you include the composition of the room (with the lights, etc.). Normally I think of a kiss as a closeup opportunity, but my eyes go straight to the kiss in your photo, from all the way across the room. Nice.

Thank you!
Last photo was 100% candid actually – I was just sitting at the bar with my friends and I just felt something happening on my left so I`ve turned and clicked immediately/
