I cant help it, im totally hooked.
I want to go out and shoot more street.
Its the challenge, finding something quirky, how close can you get to get that shot?, its the waiting game; waiting for someone to walk into the shot.
I've started to manual focus more; using zone focusing, knowing that anything in the 'zone' will be in focus. That way I can set up my focus zone, step forward and take the shot. The last thing I need is for the camera to hunt for focus! I don't want anyone turning round wondering what im doing!!! LOL
If anything, im becoming more adventurous, im not shooting so many peoples backs anymore, im photographing people walking right towards me.
Often all you need is a smile after taking the shot, no one questions a smile.
This weekend ive started shooting with windows in mind; reflections, advertising, shooting through the window. Life is lived around windows, windows are everywhere.
|Just look at the similarities|
|This guy saw the funny side|
|Or walk on by|
|Im looking into her world, she's asking me why.|
Photography is my life and I want to live it!
