Bullring Market - People

Photographs By Jeremy C Streeter

As a photographer I am constantly fascinated by the diversity of facial characteristics of the people of my home city of Birmingham. These pictures are some of the People who caught my eye at the Bull Ring Market, located in the centre of Birmingham UK.

An explanation of how I made these photographs.
The vast majority of these images were made using a Canon 1DmkIIN camera. My lens of choice is Canon EF300mm f2.8 IS USM AF prime. Not only is this lens extremely sharp it also focuses very quickly. Shooting wide open at f2.8 creates diffused background making the face stand out.

These photographs have not been posed, nor have I asked permission to photograph the subjects. If I had the results would not be as they are here. Once a person knows they are being photographed their expressions change. What first drew me to the subject disappears. If I am shooting full face head on and I make eye contact with the subject. I will explain why I have just photographed them and hopefully dispel their fears. I give the person my card which has my web site address printed on them. I ask them to look at my work and then make a judgement.
