I have never taken part in a pride parade before, but I figured while I was staying in Dublin during Pride I should see what its all about. It was a great opportunity for me to photograph the parade and the people. I have a HUGE fear of photographing people in the street, always afraid they’re going to get mad or yell at me, but I thought with Pride there would be so many other people out with their cameras for the press or companies that it would be a great way to put me out of my comfort zone. One guy did ask me to take his photo (can you guess which one?). Asking permission is a whole other photographic challenge/debate that we had in school leading to an assignment that required us to take street portraits that I 100% struggled with.
Anyway, here are some of the photos I took at Dublin Pride on June 24th, 2017.
