I’ve always liked candid street shots, but never really had the confidence to do a lot of good ones. Good street shots require you to simple pull out your camera, aim it at a complete stranger, and take the photo regardless of who’s watching or if they might turn and see you.
In Taipei since I looked like a tourist and couldn’t speak the local language, I was partially absolved of the guilt and did some candid photos.
I loved this shot of a Taipei woman looking out the window of the train. I’m a bit upset because the train was moving at the photo is actually blurred, it only looks sharp in the downsized version here on the web.
Over the next few days I’m going to be posting more of my candid Taipei photos.
