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 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 other 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.
