The weather (and lighting) in Dubai this time of the year is amazing for outdoor portrait photography… last week a client asked if i could do some natural family shots for them in the park… we did the shoot early in the morning at Zabeel Park.. it was great fun and we managed to capture some great images.. see a selection attached to this blog… i would recommend anyone in Dubai thinking about outdoor photography should get out there in the next couple of months while the weather is so good…
Dubai never lets me down… I never plan too much when i fancy a few hours of street photography… i just get up early, pick the area i want to capture, then see what happens… this Friday i spent a few hours in the back streets near to Dubai creek.. I noticed a huge gathering of Indian families, so i went over for a chat. They advised it was a day of worship at their local Hindu temple, which was hidden away in a back street not far from where the people gathered. I asked if it would be ok for me to visit, observe and maybe take some pics… they were very happy and guided me along the way.. the only rule was that i had to remove my shoes… i obliged and headed into the makeshift temple.. at no time did i feel un-welcome or out of place.. all the people made me feel so involved and chatted to me to understand why i was there… it was just a great couple of hours..
Hi.. another one of my Dubai street photographs.. i took this shot in the old part of Dubai, down by the Creek.. i actually stopped here and had a cuppa with the guys in the picture.. this is the best part of wandering around this area, you just never know what you are going to come across… it is such friendly area.
So… post number three… still feel like the new kid at school, but hey, this is fun… thought today i best put one of my pictures on here, since it is meant to be all about my images… anyway this is a shot i took in London last year… just though it sums up the place… busy,busy,busy… wet,wet,wet.. amazing city though.. one of my favourite locations for street photography..
just out of interest, i have posted this at low resolution cos i don’t know if people can easily use these images… are they protected..? any advice would be appreciated..
