A fisheye lens is perfect for narrow streets and pathways such as the one found in Barrio San Blas. In fact, if positioned correctly, one can even include two merging pathways.
As I have been saying for a while now, I’m finding so many creative ways to use a fisheye lens for travel and street photography. My favorite is how close it allows me to get to people and still provide context. The resulting images are more intimate and provide a vicarious experience to the viewer.
If your photos are not good enough, you’re not close enough! How to become invisible is one of the most powerful skills we can learn to dramatically improve our street photography.
Since I’m very comfortable photographing strangers up close, I am having so much fun with fisheye lens that allows me to shoot really really close and still include context in the frame. I can really bring you, the viewer, along in the action with intimate images and portraits of total strangers. I share all my techniques for up-close street photography in the workshops and photo walks I lead.
