Wow this is an amazing shot. Sure, the black and white and the contrast work great together in this piece, but you managaed to get the projectile behind the dark walking signal, making it visible where otherwise impossible.
je me demandais où se trouvaient les photographes des manifestations... Je ne suis pas la seule !
Très jolis clichés en tout cas... Je ne peux m'empêcher de sourire en remarquant le nombre de photographes sur cette photo ...
I like both shots, and they both show that media always shows the same pictures of the same place and same demonstrants, its not much of variety. I think its great that you captured that on this scene its actually more press then protesters.. Great work
yes everyone has said it already, but it kills me that there are soooo fucking many photogs around. it's like you guys are just holding these protest as one big photo op. a way for people to get some powerful shots for their books. crazy i tell you. crazy
we have events too! they just dont involve throwing stuff at police officers.
good luck with the protests. i'm hopefull to see some good shots from you. and yes, i imagine it is very hard to get anything very good.
you're a bit right
but i'm not gonna avoid tomorrow's demonstrations because it could be seen as an easy way to take powerful shots. for one, it's not that easy, because the bar is higher, for a demonstration shot to be considered as really good...
and i want to take some shots. i want to use my 50mm 1.8 against other photojournalists' wide angles f11 i want to see what i can do with a demonstration material.
There was a few thousand demonstrators, but a dozen meters behind. Tear gas is not fun to breathe, so most normal people stay far away.. I admit that there are a *lot* of photographers. A lot of demonstrators with DSLRs too. I wasn't a demonstrator though.
