Panama is celebrating the “Fiestas Patrias” which is the independence of Panama from Colombia. Here some images that I took yesterday in a parade.
The typical dress that you see in the last photo is named “Pollera”
I like to shoot some photos in a single place, when I find good light I stay in the same place and wait something to happen, this is what I call “working the scene”
The following photos were taken in the same spot (Sao Paulo, Brasil) in about 30 min.
Here another example, photos were took the same day close to Vila Madalena in Sao Paulo, Brasil.
Sao Paulo, Brasil
Airports are great places to shoot, the reason is that you will always find people in movement and if you are lucky you can find great places inside the airport in which the light and shadows live.
Here some images recently rock in Panama airport, Panama is refurbishing it’s airport to be the host of America’s, and this is the new section…

Photography definition is “painting with light”, it is certainly light what makes ordinary photographs extraordinary. – Erik Kim

One thing that I have learn shooting street photography is to see the light, either in black and white or in color, light is the “cherry on the cake” as it will make your images even better.
Light can transform your images, so pay attention to good subjects, good background and good light to make remarkable shoots.
The last advice is to try to shoot in the sunrise or in the sunset, in those period of times is where you will find the best light to shoot¡
Panama, Panama City
Sao Paulo, Brasil
When I go shooting in the streets, I also like to see the street art. Recently I was in Sao Paulo and realize that this city has the best street art in latin america, here some photos:
Here one of my favorites, shoot from the Sec Musem, which by the way is a must, as it always has photography exhibitions.
Avenida Paulista – Sao Paulo, Brasil
And here some others form the Paulista Avenue.
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!

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.
Here some images that I recently shoot in Chicago, all of them were shot thought a window! Try it if you want to lose the fear to shot strangers!
Whether results that you will get are great, I like it because you can really capture candid moments in the streets.
Have a great day!

I’m not from Panama, actually I’m from Mexico; but I have lived here the last 9 years due to my work.

I have been shooting for the past 4 years street photography in black and white. Recently I discovered that shooting in color using -2 exposure composition and increasing the blacks while editing it’s great to create great street images in color. Below you will find some images that I took in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
If you want to learn more on how to do this, just send me a message to my instagram account and I can give you more tips.
