Another from yesterdays wander around Leeds doing candids - if you want to know how I did it, here's what I wrote yesterday....
Had an walk around leeds with the camera around my neck and the remote shutter in my pocket.
the set up was...
Canon 17-40 (at 17mm)
Auto white balance
Av exposure @ f8
manual focussed 1/2 way between 1m and infinity
Cable release attached
I just wandered around town and when I got near people, I clicked the shutter in my pocket
Found that center weighted exposure was best, the camera pointed down a bit so when taking the shot I had to lean back a bit to get their heads in, and the 5D shutter is quite loud.... though no one seemed to hear it other than me!
This one is all about the shadows, so I've gone for a high contrast mono
There's also a colour one to follow in the variations - that shows more of the faces, but less contrast... up to you which you prefer, but let me know
