CAPTURE THE FEELING

August 27, 2023

Shibuya crossing is a great place to see people rushing about

Hi Everyone

Here we have a photo taken at the world famous Shibuya Crossing, a multi directional people crossing point at the heart of Tokyo. 
What I will always love about this photo is that it captures for me the essence of the location. Frenetic, busy, fast, commercial, with the style of dress and the motion. What we have is a slightly slow shutter speed, looking down at the ground at the legs of people rushing over the crossing before the lights changed. This was not a grab shot. It took a few visits and a good few hours to get the right light, position, shutter speed and then a bit of luck.

To capture the essence of a location can take a few days of walking around until you get the feel for it. I have a photo in Grand Central Station New York that frankly took multiple visits and a whole day in hours to capture. Yes sometimes you have to put in the time, but I have always found when you do that the photo to be much more personally valuable.

So don't just try to record a location, try and capture the essence of what a location means to you.
