Standing Out in the Crowd

Some people just stand out in a crowd and a big smile does not hurt. This is one of a series of photographs I took on Canada Day this year. I used a 105mm lens because it is a good focal length for portraits and for less obtrusive street photography, especially in crowds. While 35mm is standard for street photography, it requires you to be quite close to your subject which might not be a good idea in a crowd or if you are after candid people shots. One famous photographer uses the Nikon 70-300 for this sort of thing, not a lens I am a fan of but very workable and one of the more durable lenses made by Nikon.

  1. I generally use a 35mm lens for street but also a 24mm and an 85mm. I dont think it really matters – if you what works for you then stick with it.
