I have recently returned from a brief photography trip to Delhi. This is a magical area for Street Photography. Markets and lanes are filled with colour and life. Early mornings helped produce the best images. As the sun rises the light is soft, and the streets are still quiet.
Chandni Chowk is the area to go for the best Street Photography. It is loud, dirty, smelly and full of life. There are numerous rickshaw drivers who are happy to show you around, and drop you at various shops in the hope of a little commission. Refreshing ‘chai’ is readily available for 10 rupees a cup!
If you do go to Delhi there are a few other areas worth checking out.
Delhi is often the launching area for trips around the Golden Triangle. This was my next adventure. The golden triangle encompasses Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. My next blog will (probably) look at how I managed to capture the truly stunning Taj Mahul, and how my Sony A7iii escaped the confines of its shoulder strap and met with a near death experience.
For those of you that are interested in such things, most of my images were captured using the Sony 50mm 1.8 lens, which is the best piece of glass I own for low-light shooting. This lens is light, compactThat all today folks, take care and keep clicking.

I have just completed a shoot where I was using the Sony A7iii in silent shutter mode (electronic shutter). Obviously, my choice to use this mode was to decrease my presence and create a little discretion. I was shooting at night, and the area was lit with multiple florescent and neon lights. This appears to be a sensor issue.

This Christmas Santa delivered an A7iii. Actually, I got a good deal on it while stuck at Singapore Airport. Does this mean I am ditching my Olympus Em5ii forever? The M4/3 (Micro four thirds) system is flexible, lightweight, responsive and home to some great lenses. I am likely to keep the system as a high-end backup and a lightweight travel option. So why change systems?Read More
