Interesting, that your portraits are sometimes 'grabs.' I assume by 'grab' you mean candids. Most of these posts appear to be posed and you must have received permission, no?

When I shoot candids of people, I usually don't ask them first, but I use a longer lens than you used here so as not to get too close or offend them.

When I say 'grab' I mean that I'm approaching the subject, asking permission, taking a single image and finishing shooting quickly.   I'm not trying to impose and not taking multiple shots of the same subject.

So the actual image taking time is minimal, followed by showing them the LCD and telling them I will find them for a print if they would like.  So not candids, but photography with permission.
