Tried some streetshots on a saturday afternoon with the GR on snapfocus mode.
Really find it hard to shoot people on the street and probably will never get good at it but I really like to do it because it is so difficult to get a good shot. It’s a real challenge. Still hope you’ll enjoy the pictures. Tried my best to develop some nice black and whites.
First shot is of a man and a woman having a discussion at a fruit-stand.
Here’s the same situation a moment later. Couldn’t decide which one I liked better, the woman’s face seems frozen :) I liked the interaction between the two.
Yay! Crap compostion! :)
Actually I don’t mind that. It’s about the moment and feel and not about composing and golden ratio. It’s street. If you can smell the street it’s a streetshot. If you look carefully you can see me and my eanie meanie tiny GR in the reflection of the window and why am I holding the camera at this angle? Probably fear :)
I also discovered that I am NOT invisible! Here’s looking at you kid! And what the hell are you doing?
It’s all about golden ratio today! (see below)
The reflection in this shot shows the man is talking to a woman. If I had better composed I could have actually shot that! But didn’t. Still liked the shot so here it is.
Called this shot “Loempia-man” because it shows a man holding loempia’s a vietnamese delicatessen. Also: Introduce a lot of black to cover up lots of distracting stuff. But hey! IT’S ART!
This last one I actually liked. I call it: Hold on. Because of the woman holding on to her man trying to cross a very busy street and the little girl holding on to her father. Finally I came closer to someone and pressed the shutter while trying to hold the camera at a good angle and comping at the same time. Have a nice weekend!
