An older picture, I wish the lady wasn't in the background though.

(didn't ask this girl to take a picture, she saw me about to take a picture while she was on the phone, looked up and smiled, so I snapped a picture of her instead.)

I took these pictures around London in August last year with my Canon 20D with the 105mm, both later stolen during a break-in that fall. I know gently caress-all about photography so my replacement S95 is probably a more suitable tool anyway, but I kind of liked these.









Amazingly, I used the ol' patented technique of "take picture of friend, but zoom in on subject in background and crop it afterwards" but it came out well I think.

I've been making more effort to get out on my lunch breaks and shooting some street.

Has anyone ever tried to find a no flash corner in their town/city? I read http://2point8.whileseated.org/2006...o-flash-corner/ and wanted to try in Glasgow. We have some awesomely shiny buildings but Scotland in March isn't the sunniest and I want to be ready when the sun starts showing his face round here again.

Here are a few pics that I took yesterday or the day before as I walked around Manhattan.

That one I saw out of the corner of my eye, held out the camera, and took while walking past without stopping. Unedited. Most of the rest are edited in some way.

They're both from the 6*7, one on Portra 400 and one on Rollei Retro 400.

The death of a child is always a tragedy, but let's put this in perspective, shall we? I mean they WERE palestinian.



A gentle breeze becomes 40mph gusts, torrents of water slam my side. I shelter the camera with my body and pulled up my hood. A girl struggles to right her now inside-out umbrella. She runs. I see the shot. Tearing off the hood, now plastered to my face by wind, I have one shot directly into the rain before the lens is coated in water. I take it. 30 seconds later, the rain ceases, the wind dies, and it's right back to the calm night.

I really like the fact that the rain is really present in the photo. This was last weekend in San Diego, yes? I recognize the bridge. I'll take the opportunity to post a photo I took last Saturday:

Sunday actually, the rain really did last for 30 seconds. But yup, you got the bridge right.

As for your shot, Mardi Gras + rain in San Diego? Perfect for street photography. The people directing traffic, the free emergency-style ponchos, the woman without a rain coat, great shot where it feels like everyone is out of place in the weather.

Cross - posting from SAD. I am happy to find this thread since I mostly shoot on the streets. Recently, I have been really rusty. But I made an effort in shooting from the hip today on the street.Well, it was more like shooting a bit above the hip since I am so short. I am happy with some of the images that I got. These photos were shot around the Upper West Side and Central Park South in Manhattan.

After grabbing a 50/1.8 on the weekend I stepped out of my comfort zone (landscapes) and did some street shooting. Interested in any C&C on these:

Have been following the advices in this thread regarding how to be discreet and shoot street stuff, I like the concept. It's a great challenge though.

Here I had to resort to B&W as the sunset colors weren't too flattering. Is it any good? I do like it, but I'm still trying to figure out the basics.

I quite like it, but I'd Photoshop out the branch on the top left corner of the image personally.

I've heard that before, about street performers. Half the reason I spent so long shooting that guy was testing out the 50/1.8 - AF speed/accuracy mostly. Point taken though, thanks

For that particular image, the clone stamp tool should make quick work of the branch. There may be a better way though, I don't tend to do much PS work either - 99% of my PP is done in Lightroom.

I wouldn't edit out the branches. They add to the spontaneity of the shot and make it feel more like you are intruding on a private moment.

Those stations look immaculate compared to anything I've ever seen in American subway stations. Makes me want to visit Oslo, my great grandparents emigrated from Norway to the United States way back when. Still have some relatives in the vicinity of Oslo.

I know shooting street musicians and street performers is looked down upon here, but I think it's more important to shoot what you find interesting. When you start restricting yourself because you're worried about cliches or critics, you're doing more harm than good. I think it's an interesting image. Are you shooting on a crop body?

Definitely a good point. I didn't mind spending some time shooting that performer, but in general I do find it less 'satisfying' because he is putting on a show - whereas shooting 'normal' street life can capture the spontaneity of it all. With that said, if I ever saw an interesting street act, I'd stop and take some shots for the hell of it. Thanks for the feedback

And yes, crop body. Canon 60D. I've got the upgrade itch though so it may turn into a 5DII or III later in the year when it's bonus time at work :P Most of what I shoot is landscapes so I'd love to get a FF, weather sealed/resistant body regardless.

I'm quite keen on the hip-shot NYC photos above. They are very evocative of what I imagine New York City living to be like.

I'm putting a series of street portraits together that I feel sum up a cross-section of Hong Kong life.

The standing on the corner, or sticking in one area thing works really well for me also. Seems that in NYC everyone is in such a rush to get somewhere they don't notice you or are too busy to care.

Highline? I am so used to the first section that I forget.

Yep. Though, I noticed that in certain parts of my neighborhood (Castle Hill/Parkchester, The Bronx), people are very aware when a photographer is around. Today, I was shooting a storefront and these folks around me paused and were very curious to know what I was doing.
