I’m taking a class on Street Photography. A group of students meet up as the instructor barks out the do’s and don’t’s of photographing people unaware. We’re then told to set our cameras to f/8 aperture, adjust ISO to 200 with a focal length of 35mm and zone focus at about six feet–give or take an inch.
I’m taking the class to enhance my skills as a photographer with authoritative guidance from a professional. Which I find is far better than reading blogs of “How-to’s.” There are plenty of them.
So now I’ve immersed myself into this medium of photography with a cautious mindset. Hey, it’s Los Angeles, the land of paparazzi and tanning salons.
But what I’m really thinking is, “I should be using film.”
