Sydney July 2013
As a candid photographer, I find intersections to be a favourite hunting ground. You can get a decent amount of time to scan the pedestrians on the other side to identify interesting people, change position if necessary, and sometimes, you can arrange an interesting background. It’s an environment where people aren’t put off by others so close, and where someone walking right at you doesn’t raise any suspicion. You can be right in front of someone and they won’t see you. An opportunity for wonderful candid expressions. I find manual focus at 2-4 metres works best in these situations.
