I've published an article on the Dear Susan website that forms the first of a short series of 3 pieces on travel to cities in South East Asia, and different aspects of my approach to street portraiture. The first piece is written from Kuala Lumpur, the capitol of Malaysia, and talks about the city and my attitude and approach when photographing street portraiture. I use Sony E mount cameras and lenses. Dear Susan is a collaborative website with articles written by a number of members on different subjects, but mostly around the themes of travel photography and photography as art. Please do take a look at the article and leave a comment on the Dear Susan website, or here, and let me know what you think.
In response to a very long discussion on this forum recently about the amount of photos that get shown here, and the lack of comment and criticism about work, here are some photos. These are a very loose "set" pulled together over a few minutes in response to that discussion, and represent some of the street portraits that I took around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in February 2016. There is a large itinerant Bangladeshi community who come to Malaysia to work, often in bars, restaurants and hospitality, because the wages and working conditions are better than in Bangladesh.Â They seemed to have no issue with photography, often spoke excellent English, are were notably very friendly, welcoming and polite people. Note that not all the people featured in the photographs are from Bangladesh, as on at least one occasion I ended up speak ThaiÂ with a Thai national and his Nepalese friend who were working in Malaysia. These photos were not taken with a Fuji camera - if that offends you then please just close the thread and look at something else.Â If you want information about camera, lens, post processing, shooting data etc then please just send a private message to me. Comment, criticism and feedback welcome.Â Here is a link to some albums of "Street" type photography on my Flickr account: Flickr street photography album (work in progress)
