Candid / Street Photography in Manhattan

Coming to Manhattan, New York, My Husband & I had few plans to explore and enjoy our passion for photography in a very different/opposite culture to ours, Trying something new was on top of my list and so! i've gone on a photowalk with Photobaws through Manhattan & it was quite the experience!

As a Studio photographer, i am very familiar with guiding people, helping them find there best look, molding them to the emotions and expressions needed for the sake of the session's art direction and purpose, 

But this is something els! i was definitely out of my comfort zone! and i needed that, this experience proved that challenging yourself is what gets you going, charges your creativity and wider your horizons,

“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph”
— Andre Kertesz

I must say it is more complicated, yet a simpler than i expected it to be,

most importantly understanding the subject you are shooting, not just some random street photos, the purpose behind it is key, observing, then framing, then shooting...it's allot like hunting, for an organic & raw image...show cases people in their own zones doing their own things,

I have certainly enjoyed this experience & definitely will try it again.
