Playing with good light – Ricoh GRIII

Recently I got a Ricoh GR III camera, if you google it you will see it is the #1 recommendation for street photographers, and the main reason is that it has a great sensor, so it delivers great image quality and is very small compared with any other camera in the market that can deliver this image quality.

I really like it as you can put it in your pocket, and is always ready to capture candid moments. The price is about 900usd, but if you do not have that amount I would recommend to buy the previous verison (II) as you can get it with about 400usd and is also a super tool.

Here some images that I took recently while in the quarenteen in my home, just playing with good light and the smal Ricoh GRIII

You can get a print of one of these images in the following page:

The Day of Dead – Mexico

The Day of the Dead (“Dia de Muertos” is celebrated in Mexico between October 30th and November 2nd. On this day, we as Mexicans honor our deceased loved ones. For me is my favorite time of the year in my country and is the perfect time to make memorable photos, as people is a in celebrating mood, and if you go to the streets you can see all the rich culture, colors and traditions of Mexico. It’s a very colorful holiday and is like “party” in which we celebrate those who passed away.

Also cemeteries are decorated and people use to go there to be with their loved ones; people make altars in their homes, one day before the “The Day of Dead” putting food and/or things like cigarettes, alcohol or any other thing that the passed one enjoyed while living.

One of the many traditions in these days are the “Catrinas”; those are skeleton lady’s that wears lots of makeup to make her skin look whiter.

In this post I want to share some photos that I made with my wife, and also I want to thank my loved Gabriela for being the model and for always supporting me to do what I like the most (“being a photographer”).

Pigeons _ Street Photography

There is one animal that is very difficult to shoot but is a great complement for tryout street photography portafolio… it’s a bird and it’s name is the Pigeon.

One thing that I like form pigeons is that are like dogs, are common subjects that you can find in every country where you shoot.

Try to shot pigeons… a the beginning will be difficult as they are always moving and they do not like you to be close to them.

One technique is to shoot in burst mode, take many photos and select the best!

StreetPhotography in Chicago

Chicago is a great place to do streetphotography. It’s a city that is full of life, full of great places and great opportunities to shoot.

I like a lot the city as many of the cool spots are walking distance, or you can take the subway which is also a great place to shot.

Compared with New York, I liked that Chicago is not so crowded, and this is also great for photography as you find and shoot interesting people in the street.

Let me know in the comments section, which are your favorite city’s to do street photography.
