To capture an emotion and a story in one picture is the hardest thing I think I have ever tried to do (it's even tougher than my calc homework which is already damn near impossible). It takes a quick eye and quicker reflexes. After shuffling to the right position with the best angle and light, the moment is lost! And plus I always feel so in-your-face when I'm taking candid portraits. "Hi, can I shove my camera in your face? Thanks."
Photographer Rui Palha
makes all of this look effortless. His pictures are incredible.
His portraits are especially great. There is so much life in them, it's like I almost know their name. Here is his Flickr.

I can't get enough of these photographs!!!
