Michael Tittel: Behavior This week we are sharing work submitted to Lenscratch… It does not happen often, but every now and then I will catch someone sneaking a candid of me in public. It is the photographer in me that relates to the strides taken for the perfect image, and because of this I always pretend I cannot see them. I shake their presence off in hopes that I embodied what they needed, that in some way I managed to help them in their quest for a perfect image. Michael Tittel’s photographs satisfy my curiosity for all the photos of me I do not know, that I have not seen. His portrayal of people touches on the humor in coincidence, and brings an evocative narrative to the casual.

While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics.
