Photographing in crowds of people has never been my strongest point. Even though you can be pretty much unnoticeable and take shots of everything and anything, I still feel kind of too distracted by whatever is going on around me. Things are moving so fast, faces pass by in instants, noise, busy backgrounds.
You really need to be on top of your game to come away with something… Take a breath, get in the zone and keep your eyes peeled. Interesting things will happen, you just need to be ready and available.
On this sunny day I was out of my comfort zone and shooting among hundreds of people who gathered for the opening of a new big clothing shop. The queue of people stretched some 200 metres.
Graffiti artist, DJ and the Mayor of Montpellier were all present at the opening.
I didn’t stay long, maybe 40, 45 minutes. Shot around 30 images, picked these above as passable.
