The last day of 2019 is upon us, and so the last episode of my five-part series looking back at my photographic ventures during the past year. And as the “Streets of Nuremberg” are principally a street photography blog, here are my fav street images of 2019…
Street Photography is my true passion, capturing life as it happens, wherever it happens. I can do it while traveling on business, while going shopping with The Significant Other, or wherever I happen to be. I just need a small camera (for street shooting I mainly use the Olympus PEN-F with the fabulous mZuiko 17mm F/1.2), but even my iPhone will do.
I’m always shooting in the open, never sneaky, and I love when I can interact with my subjects, before or after a making the image. People are much more open to having their picture taken than you would imagine. A smile, a gesture, and a friendly word. 19 of 20 persons don’t reject me when I ask/signal my intentions.
While street photography was not my main focus during this year, it is still my first photographic love, and I bagged myself a few nice images and some great experiences interacting with my subjects. If you haven’t tried your hands at it, you should. You can find plenty tips in my free Learning Center.
I hope you enjoyed my five part series about my photographic work in 2019. All in all, I’m quite happy
Now lets get ready for 2020 and a new year (and even decade) of photography!
Wish you a great last day of 2019!
