"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….thanks canon!

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.

Mr Skee: Thanks Ade,
A common mistake with many would be photographers is to crop all the "goodness" out of a shot, instead of looking at how all the elements fused together and add that little bit extra to not only the composition but also the story.
In this shot, without the second camera on the right, the paper dragon and the lady on the left looking and smiling.... this shot would not have been so dramatic.

Thanks for dropping a note in Skeetown.
