What? No general picture thread yet? Here it is! This is one picture I’m proud of.
King Tut walks the streets of Hollywood Blvd.
I found out that for street photography just like fast sports photography you better put the camera in burst mode to be able to get the right photo, it’s almost impossible to get the right photo with only one photo. This photo was one of a sequence of 20 photos, the other 19 were no as good as this one, the camera i am using is a Sony A6000, great little camera, it can take 10 photos in one second.
I was shooting in India last year and people there are very open about it. I could go as close as I wanted, working the frame through the screen, taking my time… Since I’m in London, things got more difficult, I find it challenging to catch people’s soul, so I’m working on blind shooting, setting my camera on manual focus at 1m15 the camera hanging on my chest, looking at people in the eyes so we can share a moment of pure bliss and hopefully catch this magic moment.
