Street photography is like fishing – you can put in the time and still not reel anything in. So, I have a number of projects that I shoot ‘off the cuff’ to keep me pressing the button through dry spells.
A little known book on street photography was done something along these lines Smokers and Sleepers.
One of my boredom projects is shooting people while yawning…candid. It is good practice for fast shooting…a yawn does not last very long.
Shot with infrared flash.
Only problem is people yawning seem hard to come by. Kissing is another area that can produce some nice photo ops while on the street.
…I’m not that fussy about what they are kissing either…
People pointing is another good subject for fast shooting.
I have lots of pointing pix, but don’t want to put them in here. I don’t want to sign my name to them online since they will dilute my portfolio of good work. They are something you would find on your average photo forum and nothing special. I shoot em for fast shooting practice and out of boredom.
