Chinatown in Leicester

Published October 12th, 2012

treet photography was never a strong genre of mine - maybe because I had never tried. This Saturday the weather was beautiful - nice, strong sun and nearly no wind. I took my camera and went for an evening walk. I arrived at Leicester Market - it was still busy - everyone was packing their stuff from the market.

I saw some great arches - the lights and the shadows created some really nice patterns. I was ready to take a shot, when at the last moment a Chinese Restaurant worker decided to come out for a cigarette. I thought - a perfect situation, a perfect moment.

I could not wait - I went back home and I uploaded my photo to my computer - I did the conversion in Capture One - I was really surprised with the results. Maybe Street Photography is not as bad as I thought?
