Photography challenge#3: Street Photography- Perfect Portrait

This challenge was to shoot people on streets/public places, to lock them up with the best possible focus and to fade out the background as much as you can without any Photoshop assistance.

I tried many ways to get a close up portrait but did not work, ..Finally, managed to get below picture from Abu Dhabi Streets. I was in the car and suddenly spotted this man…even though my aperture was in the least number,couldn’t make background blurred much. But liked bit of colur it created in the background. (bit of watercolur style)…One thing I learned from street photography is , it is not that easy as we think, lots of strangers, starring eyes, surprised faces ,,etc etc  ,,,but if you managed to take some pictures ,,believe me you will be surprised with the colours you can create at night…(I mean different colours in the street)…really amazing..Thanks nivin for this wonderful challenge.

 

I would like to add below picture to this challenge, which was taken after few days.

I do not want to miss this interesting challenge of this week sunday stills, so just got out and took few shots.

This picture was taken at Abu Dhabi Corniche road with Tripod. The interesting thing is that when I place the tripod on the side of road, cars  were slowed down suspecting, traffic police placing speed cameras.

Below two shots were taken without tripod, by making some jerk and one by adjusting the focus after opening the shutter.
