The portrait is one of the main activities of any professional photographer. They make a living out of it. They are (rightfully) worried about correct and flattering lighting, make-up, positioning, subject expression … the list is long.
Street portrait can liberate them. Do as Steve does. Be alert, see the geometry (stair puzzle), capture the different (one hand, one glove), use the natural light (dualism of the subject/shadow).
One more thing: The geniality of the tonal composition makes the photographer's dilemma irrelevant. Because this is a colour (not coloured) B&W image.
