REPOST - My Street Photography Flow Chart

Originally published on 25 October 2015.

So, I thought it would be cool to produce a workflow chart to show my street shooting processes. The chart is quite self-explanatory.


If you want to read in full detail about 'How I Approach my Street Portraits" please read the lengthy blog entry I have written here (click) 

Stephan, my blog reader and visitor from Germany was spending his last few days in KL, and we went out for one final shutter therapy session for him, this time in Pudu. I always love shooting on the markets, and below I am sharing some shots from the earlier session. 

Thankfully the haze got much better today, not sure why and how, but it was good for us as we needed to shoot outdoor. I got with me the Olympus OM-D E-M10 and two M.Zuiko lenses 45mm f1.8 and 25mm F1.8. It was strange, that I purposely left out the gear that I used for my last blog entry and the few repeated questions here in the comment section as well as my Facebook page, a few people asking me what camera and lenses I used to capture the images shown. 

Stephan on his final few days in KL
I really hoped you have enjoyed your time in KL, especially shooting at the streets at Chow Kit and Pudu. There are more places to explore, but I think you have covered the best parts of KL. Do come back to Malaysia again!

Yellow Boots
I like how the man looked so relaxed at where he was sitting, and there was a fan nearby with a bottle of water. 

While the wife go shopping?

Portrait of a Stranger

Balancing Act. 
Yes this shot is out of focus, a little bit, but that was fine. I was slow to focus and shoot as I saw this. 

Big Fish
I did not approach this man, he offered to pose for us. Sometimes people can be extra friendly, if you already put your friendly aura on. 

Morning Market Folks
Another example of not needing to ask, but volunteered portrait shots. 

Young Kids

Red Chilli

High Places


Green Tea Latte

So do you find the flow chart making any sense? If you have been following my blog all this time, the flowchart should not come as any surprise. I thought it was fun to have it in a logical process flow.
