I’ve always been a fan of street shooting and reading your website as well as other “daily inspiration” contributors always inspired me to go out and start shooting. The wonderful photos posted by you and the rest always motivates me to work harder and see the world differently.
I’ve been back to Penang, Malaysia after a year-long working holiday in New Zealand. And as always, one of my favourite place to shoot in Penang is Georgetown, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s always things to shoot over there, from people, old buildings, and lately, wall painting/drawing by one of the famous artist, Ernest Zacharevic.
Street shooting with a DSLR is always harder as people tend to notice you and the huge black camera. However, I took it as a challenge to be braver and get closer to the subject. Currently, I’m shooting with Nikon D800E and the Nikkor 60mm F/2.8 Macro. With such distance, I don’t really consider myself brave enough but I’ll keep on trying. Next week, I’ll be heading to the same site with 35mm and see how it goes.
The photos taken here are shot with Monochrome, tweaked to my liking on camera and minor adjustment such as cropping and clarity are applied using Adobe Photoshop CS6.
