As I have told you before I tend to like street shooting more nowadays and I admit it is fun. This new year I hope I can be more active doing street shooting and ultimately find my own “decisive moment”. Street shooting is more convenient. You need not travel far and chase the light just because want to shoot the most glorious sunrise or sunset at a scenic spot or you need not risk your life or limbs to capture the potential award-winning photojournalism shot a la Steve McCurry or James Nachtwey. Street shooting is just about everyday lifestyle and activities of your local people or the people that you visit not to forget your strife to capture it at the most interesting peak moment which is defined by Henri Cartier-Bresson as the “decisive moment”. In short the ultimate aim is to shoot candid and freeze the action at its peak moment.
I consider myself new in street photography although I have enjoyed viewing those by legends in street shooting such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Elliot Erwitt, as well as many others by the established names in street shooting.
I am glad to share a couple of my street shots of 2011.
The husband-and-wife owners of Kudu Nasi Kandar Restaurant, one of the finest nasi kandar in town, are taking break in front of their retaurant.
Hope you enjoy my street shots.
Happy new year!
