Shooting in a Romanian village

Shooting in a village with 10+ photographers drew a lot of attention in a village outside of Bucharest, Romania.

It was difficult to really get moments where the people were unaware of me. So I just shot some images to capture the village as they responded to us.

In these situations I really love shooting either with super wide-angle lens or telephoto. Here you can see that the guys at the table thought I was shooting the wall, but I was capturing them at this table.

Here I zoomed in with the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR on my Nikon D750 to capture the smoke from the cigarette swirling around the woman.

With this couple I was in a car as we were passing. We stopped and I shot a few frames after asking permission to take their picture.

I also shot some portraits where I am interacting directly with the people. Here I shot it with a telephoto lens and then I switched camera and lens to get a different look with the wide-angle.

I like this photo because I see more context, but this doesn’t mean it is better. I like both photos for different reasons.

While all of this was about discovering moments I was also enjoying those bonus moments like this of the guys coming towards me on the cart. I just looked down the street and saw them coming our way, so I was able to just zoom and compose the photo.

I love just showing these villagers in context of where they live.
Tips when shooting with group of photographers. Try and separate yourself a little from the pack. Shooting in a pack doesn’t get you the best of photos.  However, there are moments where shooting in a pack might work.

Here the guys got their accordions and were performing for the group. This was easier to capture photos because this would be like shooting a concert–it was a concert for us.
