"I come with a kiss"
Catching Time: " The moment it happens, it is gone!" (Mista skee: "Random thoughts on street photography" 2009)
Don't get me wrong, I love all creative forms of photography. But there's something about capturing that everyday moment, Joe public, the girl next door, Bob the builder down the road, everyday life, that is a breath of fresh air from the beauty dishes and studio lights and the made up models with all the accessories that gives me goose pimples. Maybe that's why street photography I find of interest.
5D mark II: First impressions: I really like, its seems lighter that the original 5D, I couldn't be bother reading the manual, I simple put everything on manual settings and away I went. Everything so far it seems to do better than the old model. The first annoyance though was discovering that the battery is completely different from the old version. I guess that's more batteries to buy
Today's shot: "I come with a kiss"
Shot in a busy crowd in Chinatown, quick response timing , being alert and aware of everything moving are key in capturing this type of image. It's one of the reason's that when I'm out to do serious stuff I work solo (Not that it's a must) I just find out I can concentrate better on what's going on around me.
