Inception : Stranger No. 1
It’s been a long, really long time (more than a month) since I posted here in my blog. Well, shooting did not stop though. Visited few places, visited so many photos in various websites. Let’s just say, things were bit on the slower side. Planned to post on something in past few weeks but somehow did not get that going.
So last Monday I was thinking to assign myself with some photography project. Now in last few days I have grown more love with street portraits, which is entirely because of some spectacular images I have seen in internet.
I have seen so many photography projects in internet, I choose to start with 100 strangers. The main aim of this project is to start learning the street portraits, to get the better understanding of exposure, subject and basics of portrait photography.
So here I am. My stranger no. 1 is Martin. I discovered him at Quiapo, Manila. I gently ask Kuya if I can take his photo for my new project. To be very frank he did not understand about my project anyways, but he agreed with a nice little smile and pose for my camera. He is basically from Tacloban, Philippines and selling cigarettes in Quiapo market place.
The best thing I like about about this photo is, he is not looking at the camera while posing. Well done Kuya 🙂 and I am really proud to include you in my project.
Will try to get original Nikon color from now on, calibrating the camera setting in Lightroom. Took this photo in manual mode with wide open 40mm 2.8. To me color came out pretty nice.
What you think ? Are you also planning to do some photography project like this ? Let’s discuss 🙂
