My photography has changed since. My heart beats fast when I see a group of people, at markets, on the street. I feel need to capture the human condition, emotion. I am after that special glance, look, face, feeling. I revel when I get several layers of human emotion on camera. I now shoot at f 1.4, as wide open as possible. I choose carefully where I want to focus on, and the rest of the image I like blurred. This is one difference from the photos you see here - at the time I used to shoot between f 4.5 and f 8.
Most of the images are taken in winter. I love how bleak and dark many abandoned places look in winter. And that amazing smog/fog you get when people start up their coal and wood stoves. Not good for breathing, but amazing for photography.
I love animal markets. I wish I had more time to shoot them, but they are held only on Sundays. I think this could make a wonderful photo project.
