Face in the Crowd

Face in the CrowdTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Over the past weeks I have put up some street photography all taken on the same day, in crowds, with a 105mm lens. The 105mm is great for portraits and on the street it gives you some room and is less confrontational than the traditional 35mm. I know at least one famous photographer who uses a 70-300 f4-5.6 lens for just this reason. It gets you close to your subject while enabling you to move around and find an appealing angle.

  1. I invariably used a 50mm for street. Then I got braver and used a 35mm. Now I’m on 24mm. It’s a journey and you need a sense of what not to photograph too. The acid test for me is always suppose it were a photo of me or someone close to me. Would I object? Usually I am looking for incongruity or humour, maybe interesting juxtapositions.
