Looking with leading lines in mind.
Everything you want is on the other side of fear. I don’t know you said that but it seems to be true. It’s hard sometimes to push myself to take a photo of a person up front. But the best shots I gravitate towards to mostly have the eye of the subject directly at you (camera).
Sneaky shot which activated my sweat glands a bit. Still not what I’m aiming for.
Could improve a lot in this image but pushed thru my fear to capture this. No confrontation,no fuss.
Need more practice.
You got to grab life by it’s…
Remember that the only thing you control in this world is yourself. You control how you react to people and events. It’s liberating to know that you’re always in control whatever the situation. However hard that situation is.
Photography is all about light.
Direction, quality and intensity of light.
We don’t thrive disconnected
We thrive being connected to one another.
UBUNTU is an African philosophy. In it’s heart is this “A person is a person through other people”.
Today have been a hectic day. Didn’t get to shoot or edit much. But shoot I did. Somewhat personal photos which are very dear to me. I think it’s the personal photos of your love ones that really matter.
It’s 8am and most of my fellow human are already tired. Long travel time due to traffic and the daily hassle is really grinding them down. Good thing it’s weekend tomorrow. A little rest.
Well this is always asleep.
Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
I have been looking forward to Jan 9. It’s translocation of the Black Nazarene (Life size statue? of Jesus) from Point A (usually Quirino grandstand) to Point B (Quiapo Church). So what makes this special? Well it’s attended by millions of devotees. I planned to use my x100f (35mm) in contrast with the usually telephoto usage of the photographers during the event. Thinking a different perspective will give me a different result. Cock sure and confident I walked to the main bulk of the “parade?” I caught it near the Manila City Hall. More like it caught me. As I can’t move away and you just have to go with the tide of human.
The heat and the press is suffocating. Thankfully there’s a ever presence of community in the whole mass. Water is given when it’s needed magically. And rescue personel are always available.
I tried to get closer still. But i’m wary carrying my camera as once in a while people would splash there water all around to cool the heating people. So I threaded the edge between the watchers and the joiners (Once trying to reach the Nazarene or hold the rope).
My shirt is soaked with my sweat and other peoples sweat by this time. Then a wave of feverish emotion soaked the people. They started shouting “ariba! ariba!”
After that I stepped out for a while to breath. That’s when I realized I lost my phone. Most likely stolen from the press humans. This completely took me out of the shooting mode. Just 1 and a half hour. The whole thing usually starts at 5am and ends at midnight. What a waste of photographic opportunity.
Note for next year: Bring only Camera!
