Street photography 1: Flower power

Posted by Nicole (Aix en Provence, France) on 1 February 2009 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Damon Shreiber de Toronto proposait un petit challenge alors j'essaie de relever le défi !!!
I'm throwing down a little challenge here. It's a theme for the first 3 days of February and I hope to have your participation. We've done this before and it's always a lot of fun.

But this time, let's try something different: I'd like you to spend 3 days posting your best street photography in black and white. Street photography is generally understood to include images taken (usually - though not necessarily - of people) in a candid public setting such as a sidewalk, often with a normal to wide angle lens.

So if you're interested, get out there and capture some decisive moments! If you are interested in participating, let me know through my contact link and I will add your name to the list when it's time.

Damon ... c'est corrigé ! ;-)

J'adore la lumière sue les cheveux de cette jeune-fille! Mais j'ai l'impression que ces cheveux ce matin étaient plus blonds... ;-)

Merci à vous tous .
En fait je faisais des essais avec le 50/200mm que je venais d'acheter
One of my first shot with my new 50-200mm
but i'm not very keen on taking such pictures (i become so shy )

Nicole, I understand your shyness: taking candid photos in the street is harder than it looks. But I find that most of the time people hardly notice (if you can be quick enough).

the right moment to push the button - you shouldn't be shy to use your camera for streetpics - using the autofocus makes it much easier than in former times
