Dec 18 2017 6 CommentsPhotographing the photographer Turning the tables and (perhaps not quite so) surreptitiously photographing a Tokyo street photographer.
Did he react fast enough to get a photo of you too?
No. Or at least not that I know of!
Very cool shot! Great framing and atmosphere. He doesn’t look so happy about the camera being turned on him! 😉
Cheers. Certainly happy with the result. And no, he doesn’t, does he…?
Nice shot again! You often use hipshots. Is that an artistic choice or just easier to photograph people a bit less obtrusive / without them noticing? 🙂
Thank you! It’s an artistic choice. I like the effect of looking up at subjects, plus it also has the advantage of removing some of Tokyo’s clutter that can often be very distracting. I still have to get close, and sometimes crouch down rather than shoot from the hip, so very little chance of going unnoticed!
