It looks like street photography is becoming a regular activity for me. I love the candidness of it all. To be honest though, taking pictures of random strangers still makes me feel really nervous, especially when I’m walking around with a DSLR and a 90mm macro lens. If you don’t know, the 90mm macro lens is really slender, long but super light weight. So when paired with a DSLR, my set up looks HUGE!
I would go, go, go THEN suddenly, I crouched super low to the ground and CLICK! The shutter would go off really loud so YES! It was pretty obvious when I was taking pictures. The zoom on the 90mm is excellent though because I can be somewhat far away and still be able to get the crop I wanted.
My goal for today was to capture the city feel, whatever that is.
We started at 4:30PM. I thought there would be lots of people getting off work at this time but surprisingly, that is not the case. But it didn’t matter. The nice thing about street photography is that you take that you get and make the most out of it.
After capturing this guy, I became a bit obsessed with capturing people on bikes. The focus on the 90mm is not that fast so challenge accepted!
I hope you enjoy the journey!
Until next time.
