Street photography in Barcelona during holiday? Yes, I tried it. But let’s start at the beginning. It is almost a month ago back in mid-June when I was in Barcelona. Still I haven’t looked and worked on all pictures I wanted to but here is another part of them.
When I look at street photographers and their methods to take pictures I see lot of different ways how it can be done. So one afternoon I took my 16-35mm at a focal length of 24-28mm, selected all autofocus points, hold the camera in front of my belly and my finger on the trigger and just took pictures of the people around me. Or what I than realized: the busy tourist. As you can imagine there is a lot of pictures you can’t use. Some of them are ok but have no clear structure and are therefore not really showable. Yes, I could use black and white than to give the viewer more direction of understanding the picture. But in such a colorful city like Barcelona I feel a bit bad if I would have done that.
Something I was fascinated by was the tourist streams. If I walked one crossroad further, it was almost empty of people. But see for yourself. Enjoy the experiment 😉
