11 Seconds/ Street Photography In Jaipur

Even though I have clicked pictures for some years, I find it difficult to project camera in people’s face. As a result, I avoid street photography in Jaipur and also when I’m traveling. This is a downer since I’m well versed with great locations for people photography as well as street photography in Jaipur. Jaipur is one of the best places for the street photography in India.

Portraits and street photography involving clicking people is an art. You need to be subtle and tone down your presence otherwise the results aren’t too encouraging. In a bid to improve my photography skills, I have taken photo-walks in Jaipur. Check out my Indian street photography blogs on Jaipur Photo-Walks in Jaipur

One of the weekends, I was out to capture people on the streets. From this collection, here are two monochrome shots.

I found people reading newspaper. I quickly framed them.


As I bent down to their eye level to capture them, the shutter noise distracted one of the men. He looked towards me startled with a blank face. I captured once again locking his expressions in this frame with a gap of just 11 seconds! The expression on his face was price-less!

What are your thoughts on these pictures? I would love to hear your street photography experiences.

You can read about some of these interesting themes in the photo-walks in below links.

  1. Always a challenge, street photography, aka social documentary. I really enjoy the first image. I donโ€™t need to see the faces. The fact that they are buried behind the newspapers tells the only story I need to know. Well done !!

    1. Well, the world is divided on this, Lisa. Many find clicking pictures, invasive. Invasive of their personal space and privacy. Others feel a public place is public, why privacy? I agree that the first picture has its own story to tell. I’m happy you liked this picture. I assume you are into street photography. Thanks for stumbling here and sharing your thoughts, Lisa. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Divided it is on many topics. I do enjoy doing a bit of street photography. But I refrain from the Bruce Gilden in your face style out in public. Iโ€™m not that aggressive about. I do, however, pull off a little at private events where the subjects seem to invite it. Dddxx fI do try to respect peopleโ€™s privacy on the street but understand they are out in public. Itโ€™s a topic to be discussed for hours, thatโ€™s for sure. โ˜ฎ๏ธ

  2. Loved the pictures! I love street photos. And I totally agree with you! Photographing people on streets is the most difficult task for me. Adding people into the frame adds so much of beauty but the fear of them getting annoyed stops me every time.

    1. Aishwarya, over a period of time I realized that it is not as difficult as it seems. Most people are happy to get clicked. Watch out and notice the reactions, if someone doesn’t want to get clicked, we must respect their choice.
      Haha! It might seem so but it wasn’t that way.
      Thanks for the appreciation and sharing your thoughts. Hope to see you around. ๐Ÿ™‚
