When the lights turn red on St Georges Terrace..



If you've been reading the blog for a while you will know that one of my very favourite places to sit and people watch in the city is on St Georges Terrace. Once the Shingle Inn now Eat House this spot couldn't be more perfect, especially at mid-day when hungry office workers stream out of the skyscrapers on the terrace in search of lunch. I really enjoy street photography but think I need more practice :) any tips? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  2. Good shots!

    Some photographers tend to do a lot of street photography, people on the go. I seem to stay away from that side of things.

  3. My only tip or advice would be to open the shutter to add motion. Maybe just a quick blur. Still, pretty cool shots!!

    Cheers

  4. Your photos are great! I’ve never tried photography on a busy street. I would be concerned about privacy but you handled it as I would have! Great job.

  6. I miss the people watching of Waikiki when I see your photos. Now I see more ducks, herons, geese, finches than people, Grace!

  9. You don't need any tips. You could give tips. It took me a bit to find the red light in the first shot. Very nicely done! I'll give you this advice: Keep pulling the trigger, er, punching the button on the camera that takes the picture! You'll do just fine! You are doing better than fine.

  10. It took me awhile to find that red light but I found it. :) As Lowell says just click away. I've sat at tables with my camera all ready to go and just click. People don't pay attention to everything because lots of them are busy with their own devices.

  12. Looks like an interesting place. Like my photography professor used to say; if you want to learn photography you must get out and shoot. Very applicable to any camera, studio, or any other photographic situation. There are plenty of web sites and blogs on street and other digital imaging. One I really like is run by Olivier Duong: The Inspired Eye

  15. These are nice shots. I try to just blend into the woodwork and watch. Andy in Toronto ("Eye Candy," eyecandy.blogspot.com) has been doing a lot of street photography this year. He's taken on the everyday and also some that are so gritty and real they're almost painful.

  17. I know the feeling, you must not be shy to photograph people, but that is easier to say than to do so...:)

  18. I like esp the first pic, Grace - and gathered some links in the comments to browse through, too :-)
    Maybe toy around with macro?
