I’ve been interested in candid photography for some time now, so I didn’t hesitate to accept an offer from artist Eddie Nino to document one of his private art classes. [ngg_images source="galleries" container_ids="1" display_type="photocrati-nextgen_pro_sidescroll" height="400" captions_enabled="0" captions_display_sharing="1" captions_display_title="1" captions_display_description="1" captions_animation="slideup" order_by="sortorder" order_direction="ASC" returns="included" maximum_entity_count="500"]I knew this was a good chance for me to shoot wide angle, ride the ISO settings and hopefully get to shoot some closeups. Having been to the location on numerous other occasions, I knew the tungsten lights and low ceiling would give make high contrast images, as well as force me to make sure I was not disrupting the class.
I really enjoy documenting people’s activity with the camera, it serves me with an opportunity to work in a photojournalistic style. A basic rule of thumb I give myself when taking this type of pictures is to avoid peoples' backs facing the camera whenever possible. I make sure to focus on their body language and be attentive to hand expressions so I can increase my chances of capturing the right amount of motion blur that may add a narrative layer to the photograph.
