No, I'm not talking about additional jobs that help you sustain the many expenses that you tend to incur on your wants. ;)
The title is all about where I tend to be in most of my day-to-day life as a photographer. Sure, I would sometimes make my presence known to anyone if it means to properly carry out my job as an event/portrait photographer, but most of the time I merely shoot in the sidelines, letting the events flow out as natural as possible.
It's just like the one time I covered a lovely couple's pre-nuptial event a couple of weeks ago:
For shoots like this, I would sometimes direct the couple to do some poses to present them in photos in the best ways possible. David and Carla however, made it really easy for me; they were naturally comfortable to me and with each other, and I simply took the shots inconspicuously. They weren't even (that) shy in the whole session even though a hulking camera is trained at them, nor were they (apparently) nervous at the vehicles speeding near them as I blissfully took photos from a (safe) distance (that's an inclined road in the background, and I placed them in the middle of the road just so I could get that particular shot).
Here's another candid photo of them being... them. ;)
