Street photography – London
Street photography is something I love but rarely do. I had the privilege to spend a day with UK street photographer Chris Porsz in London a couple of weeks ago. We walked, talked and snapped pictures for nearly seven hours. It is so refreshing to connect with other people who share your passion for photography and not have to worry about making non photographers wait for you while you quickly frame a moment in time. My family is very patient with me when we travel but I also understand how frustrating it can be for them and I end up missing a lot of great photo opportunities. But that’s life!
Here is a selection of images mostly made that day while walking with Chris, others shot during the rest of my London stay. I learned a lot from Chris and experimented for the first time with hip photography. Keep in mind that I shoot with a dslr which draws a lot of attention. Some situations will not allow you to bring the camera to your eye so shooting from the hip while walking becomes the best option. There were quite a few missed shots but after a while I managed to get some decent ones.
