Street Portrait shooting by Saurav Chowdhury

Getting out to shoot

After a year out of doing any real personal portraits or photography work, I finally got some time with Reena to shoot some street portraits.

We had no concepts for this shoot so we just wondered around Soho/Fitzrovia and find some great lighting and street scenes at golden hour and as the sun set, headed towards Hyde Park and Winter Wonderland.

Shot with:

  • Canon 5D IV
  • Canon 85mm f/1.8
  • Canon 50mm f/1.4

Using the Lens Distortions assets

 So this was shot when the super blood moon took place, so it was pretty bright. Bright enough to expose this image for us at 1AM. I'll probably upload the time lapse video I shot of the night at a later dat (seriously why did I forget to post it on here already)   Shot on my newly aquired GoPro Hero 4+ Black.

Photo of the Day - 17/08/2015 by Saurav Chowdhury

My mother moved to the UK around 20 years ago (just before I was born) from Kolkata, India and as a result has missed her own mothers birthday for all those years. Today she celebrated it for the first time with her since she left her birth home.

In the photo you can see a Skype call with my aunt back in India where my little cousin was throwing a tantrum because she wasn't here to celebrate her beloved grandmothers birthday.
