Caught again
Posted By: Kerrowdown, 05-12-2013, 10:50 AM

Guess you get caught out more often using the 20 mm, the eyes are definitely on me from behind those shades.

If that's uncropped at 20mm, you were not trying to be unobtrusive. No wonder she noticed you.

A 300mm might have been safer. On a side note Is it me or does her watch look to be as large as her camera

No it's barely cropped, as Robert Capa is accredited as saying "If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough"

It's actually quite amazing, folk tend to think that your shooting past them when your that close.

Being sneaky, the illusion can be be further enhanced be taking a couple more shots straight after they're out of frame.

Excellent shot in every way. The sunglasses and obscured gaze, those skin tight jeans, her stride... the whole thing is so candid and interesting to view. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for that, on the street, it's one of my favourite photography things to do.

I admit it may well have been those breeks that first caught my eye.

If you look closely at the sunglasses you can just see her eyes looking straight at me, hence the thread title.
