Last weekend I did a street photography workshop with Neely Main from Oliver Klink's photography studio. We did a walk through of China Town in San Francisco. There were so many subjects for our cameras that I was able to get quite a few beautiful pictures.
Very few people took notice of my camera and so I was really able to capture people in their day to day activities, like this man bringing boxes to a shop. I love the way he is the attention of the alley and doesn't even look at me or the crowds around him. He's just busy doing his work.
I've been to Chinatown a number of times as it's one of my favorite part of the city and have even taken my camera along for some shots but the workshop really focused us on using light and shadow as well as composition to get just the right image. I like black and whites but the colors that were a part of everyday booths amazed me. I didn't even notice it until going through my images.
I look forward to my visits to that area of the city with a renewed vision of the people and the bustle of the streets filled with people and shops. The area is rich for street photographers.
