Default China People Photos (Photo Journalism)

These shots are for Kevin (Frogfish), to show again the ease of people photography in China. I am sure that Kevin will post many more and I look forward to them as I enjoy this genre of photography.

All the pictures were taken with the K100D and Tamron 18-250mm lens.

"Leap Of Faith - Yangtze River"


"Brother can you spare a Yuan" - Shanghai


"Knit One Pearl Two"- Bejing


"Saturday In The Park" (definitely not the 4th of July) - Bejing


"Solo Dancing in the Park"


"Hitching A Ride" - Fengdu


Tying Dumplings" - Zhu Jia Jiao


"Cleaning Up" - Zhu Jai Jiao


"Let's Dance, I'll Show You How" - Bijing


"Play it again Sam" - Bijing


"Work Break" - Fenddu


I'm So Proud Of Him" - Fengdu


I hope you enjoy these.

Lou

These are great Lou !! I enjoyed them very much ! Particularly the Old Beggar / Baby in a Basket / Ribbons. Not sure how that guy got onto the other boat either !

The last shot epitomises exactly what I was saying the other day - take a shot of someone's child and 9/10 they will be delighted and turn the child around to pose for you. It makes everyone very happy and is a nice story for them (and maybe you too) to tell friends and relatives over the next few weeks / months / years !

So pleased you got these out - I can see you got some great shots and had a wonderful time.

That 18-250mm looks to be a very nice lens!
You got some really good shots and the color is great.
Nice work.

Great series Lou...I like the very natural scenes that you have captured. When did you visit?

Kevin - The guy jumping from boat to boat did make it. I was standing on the bow of our boat and took this shot spontaneously and it came out nice considering. The old man begging was taken through the windshield of a Taxicab; I was in the back seat and shot it over the drivers shoulder, another lucky shot.

GW - Glad you enjoyed them as I had a blast taking them!

Jehan - Thanks, was in China in September of 2008 shortly before I began posting here. Lots of pictures but never posted any except some night shots taken in Chongqueng.

I always prefer candid shots to stilted posed ones - nicely done!

+1 from me /nod

Thanks for sharing these and I am still unsure if I should try my luck with a 18-2xx lens or not. Upon seeing you images I'd say... try

TH, The 18-250 is a wonderful do everything lens. It is the best travel companion I could ask for my camera. Not having to stop and change lenses is a big bonus when traveling.

The Tamron had a 5 year warranty and that is what sold me on the Tamrom lens over the Pentax.

Lou - All these photos show your great eye for the story, as well as fine composition and, most important, sympathy with the subjects!

TH - I too have a Tamron 18-250. Don't use it as much as I used to (have a bigger backpack with room for more lenses now!!), but it is very useful when space and/or time is limited. Really nice quality if handled right...

Lou, these are great photos. I've never been to Asia, but these photos give me a great feel for street life in China. Thanks for sharing.
