I have a few rules that I do my best to follow with street portraits. A prime lens, for starters. Except for some of my photojournalism works, I don't use zooms. My short primes keep me close to my subjects and force me to interact. Also, no candids. I don't always record a name, or get permission to share a name, but the rule is that I engage. And less a rule than a fact:  no staging. For these portraits, the setting is wherever I meet people, in whatever light and backdrop the moment allows. These rules are somewhat arbitrary and meant only to challenge me and keep me honest.
