If you have gone to Panama, you have might seen that there are many street barber shops. Yesterday a friend told me that he wanted to have his hair cut in one of this places and have a unique street photography to remember Panama from its roots.
I accepted the challenge and we went to one street barber shop, it was a good experience as this was the first time that I went to shoot with a clear image in my mind of what would be the end results, very different than in any other photowalk.
What I learned yesterday?
- Street photography must needs be candid, but sometime you can also plan and create unique images. You just need to envision the end result, choose a good location and jump into action.
- You need to always be open to new ideas, and just make it happen. I really liked the end result of the photos.
- Street Photography is about having courage, in this case we were in “dangerous” zone of the city, but instead of putting barriers and think why not, we were very optimistic and we just went and shoot.
Here some images taken yesterday with my Olympus EM10 Mark II with the 17mm F1.8 lenses.
