A tradition, is the annual ‚JapanTag‘ in Düsseldorf.
This year I had not only another ‚partner in photographing‘, I also wanted to try to photograph a bit different.
In an audience of 10.000’s of people (!) it is easy to sneak and make a photo from someone in a not so flattering situation. One can call it street.
I was guilty, to it, the past years, and this year my challenge was to photograph different.
I took my ‚270 Zoom with me, but before we went ’shooting‘ I changed to the Sigma 17 -70mm
Also, no ‚invisible shooting‘, but photos nearby, with more interaction, No close ups.
When they smile in the camera
With so many people, it was easy to ‚hike‘ with other photographers. When the people not smiles directly at the camera
And of course, it should not be me, if there were not photos that were in contradiction with what I wrote above 🙂
A wonderful day with Sonja, thank you, dear Sonja, for joining me, the fun and all!
My photos can also be found at my personal photo site (–> click here <—)
6 times a year there is a huge market in the inner city, on what a lot of things are available what you not too often see anymore. Herbs, clothes, curtains and so more. A good reason to visit it, with and without the camera.
