I have this thing of shooting photographs out my car window. Moments that unfold in front of me. I like the energy of these photos. Some have people really engaging in their surroundings. Like this guy in downtown Boulder.
Others have a stillness. Like these people waiting or standing–a woman in Denver, people on a street corner on a Sunday morning in Vegas, and three businessmen in Rochester.
And sometimes I see a story on the street, that I have to pick up the camera and shoot. Here are two different people with shopping carts as a major part of their lives.
To get photographs like this, you need lightning-quick reflexes with a camera that’s already preset. I use aperture priority on a Nikon D610 with a 50mm or 20mm with back button focus. I make photographs out of both driver and passenger windows. And sometimes out the front window. I love the weed-sprayer man with the two cyclists. Would look amazing large!
There are scenes out there. Just keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel, too!
