You don't have to go very far in Singapore to find interesting spots to do some street photography. I saw this gentleman taking a break from his job, sitting on a stoop of sorts near the Singapore River. What struck me about him, was that he was working a job as move,r and he was surrounded by younger guys, but he had a steadiness and stillness about him as he performed his duties. I really admired that. ...Also, his bitchin' cap.
What I didn't immediately notice though, was his hands. Not to be super cliched over here, but he really does appear to have the hands of a man who has worked with them his whole life. They're thick, and meaty, and callused, and rough...a far cry from my smooth, photo-taking, keyboard-typing, soft hands.
I shot this with my go-to setup for street photography: Sony a7s with the fe55 1.8 with silent shooting enabled. Furthermore, like my shoot with Nathan, I had my iPhone synced with my camera so that I could take shots more inconspicuously. I held my camera in one hand, iPhone in the other, and then i used some of those acting skills I learned in acting school to appear like I was just another smartphone zombie scrolling through Instagram - when in fact, I was taking photos. Boom, ninja-spy mode enabled!
Originally I planned to post a new blog entry every week, but I've got quite a backlog of stuff that I want to share, that I think I can do this biweekly. It'll also force me to go out and shoot more...I'm looking forward to it.
Thanks for stopping by, now go shoot stuff.
