I said before I left for this trip, that I wanted to focus more on the people of Cuba. I believe I did this, however, I’m not sure I succeeded. Sure, I made some nice images I like, but when I look at others work, I feel I am falling short. “Street” photography is not easy, it takes patience and timing. And then there is the idea of capturing the moment unaware versus engaging the subject. I tend to want to get permission which means engaging with the people. What I do know is, I will get better at this type of photography over time and with much practice.
This triptych was created on the first day. A happy moment to be sure! Remember to click on the image to view it bigger.
More thoughts on “street photography” and the people of Cuba as I continue to post over the coming weeks.
