I told my tutor when I sent him my student profile, that one of things I aspire to, but am absolutely petrified of doing is street photography. Guess what Excercise 8 is all about! Well, I can choose to photograph a landscape, but the initial suggestion is a public event with people. I was hoping to have a bit longer to psyche myself up to shooting in public, but here it is already.
So my plan is to actually shoot people in public (might as well push myself), but I will wait until the Chinese new year on 14/2/10 where there will be a parade and hopefully I won't get challenged for taking photos of strangers. So I will come back to this excercise, and for now continue with the rest of the excercises.
