I may contact you to ask for pointers. I am fascinated by people and have had a longing to get into street photography for years - since even before I really got interested in photography. I went out this afternoon with the intention of hitting the city center with my camera but I feel too nervous to stroll around on my own with a camera and I don't actually know where to start or how to tackle it

Thank you After fighting with this image a few times over the month, I thought it actually looks better with the color saturation almost completely removed

If it is, now we all know who kissed her

That's a really cool capture. I love that you took the shot from behind him, not with him facing the lens

TraylorC, that's another great one! The definition and detail in there is incredible!

mom2rtk, I'm lovin' your Disney on Ice photos! Had you ever photographed a show like that before? I sometimes need a kick up the confidence box, lol and shy away from things I think I can't do - shows being amongst them.

Feel free to ask away!!!

And for one pointer, shooting from behind someone is good for a few reasons. You don't look like you're blatantly taking a picture of the person. You won't have as big a fear of taking these types of pictures. The person won't react or move out of the way (they might think you're shooting something else). And you can capture what their attention is focused on.

Thanks 2tiggies!

We go to Disney on Ice most years, but that's about the only show I get to shoot. Even so, the hardest part seems to be just finding a way to get my dang camera into the show with me!

The trick really is to adjust the metering and exposure compensation properly. That venue is completely dark except for the skaters who are very brightly lit by spots. I started with spot metering but it was hard to keep that consistent since the subjects move so fast. So I went with center weighted metering plus a LOT of negative exposure compensation. Even then, I kept ending up with some scenes more brightly lit than others.

Honestly though, it was fun to try to figure out the best way to get the shots.

They post out front at this arena that they won't allow cameras with interchangeable lenses, but I took in my DLSR with a nifty fifty lens, so it was small enough to pass through. It's funny but I have now deemed this my "Disney on Ice" lens because it only comes out this one time every year.

Thanks for that. I know that I need to just go do it once to feel more confident about it. That seems to be my biggest hurdle at times!

So the smuggling is part of the appeal So did you use the 50 mm exclusively for this? That must have an effect on where you are able to sit, I'm guessing, since you have a fixed focal length?

Well, I decided this year I was tired of playing games and trying to smuggle it in. So I actually called the arena ahead of time and was told not to worry that all cameras were welcome for this event. I quizzed her up one side and down the other but was reassured it would be fine. I was skeptical so I threw in the nifty fifty in case smuggling was still necessary. Well, I got to the gate and was told I couldn't bring in my camera as promised. Sigh. I had to trek back out to the car to stow my bigger lens and swap to the 50. So yes, the 50 was all I had inside with me.

I had bought the tickets last July when they first went on sale so didn't even remember where we would be sitting. We actually were just 5 rows back so that 50mm length was very tight for anything on our side of the rink. But the action is all over the place so I cropped down a number of shots from across the rink to get the framing I wanted.

Here's one for today:
