Out of Focus

This one came out a little bit out of focus. Here's why: She is riding a bicycle and I saw her from a distance coming towards me and so I prepared my camera until I can frame her from head to waist. Suddenly, someone passed by in my viewfinder and so I hastenly move my camera until I saw her again in the viewfinder and click the shutter. When I open the photo in my computer, I was kind disappointed because it's a little bit out of focus. Anyway, despite of that, I think she remains a very interesting subject. For those who were asking as to what lens I'm using for my street shots, I'm using the Sigma 70-200 f2.8. Thanks.

Candid

Candid street photography can be really challenging. Here's why:

1. It's awkward to point your camera to a complete stranger vis-a-vis.
2. It's hard to get a decent shot. Like this one, just when I thought I got the perfect shot, my subject covered her face with her hand. I also saw the guy on the right is approaching who will block my subject and after that guy passed by, my subject is gone in 60 seconds.
