Pic(k) of the week 20: STREET PHOTOGRAPHY IN SATWA, DUBAI

To me an interesting Street Photograph should make you ask more questions than provide you with answers. I like images where the viewer eyes are lead through the frame searching for what is going on. 

When I noticed a series of mirrors for sale outside a small shop in Satwa, I knew that a bit of patience would likely pay off and get me a few interesting images. Satwa, is an older neighborhood in Dubai and my second favorite Street Photography place in Dubai. The first one being the area around Dubai Creek, see Life at the Creek gallery.

I got an interesting image of a mum and daughter passing by and looking into the mirrors (click here), but the image that stood out was a bit more mysterious; captioned "5 Arms" the image below was my favorite one of the shoot.


Image details:
  • Fujifilm X-T20 with XF50mm f2 lens
  • ISO 5000, 1.320s, f5.6
  • Lightroom CC for RAW and Black and White conversion
With the month of Ramadan about the start, I invite all photographers living in Muslim countries, to try and document this yearly event through Street Photography. For the ones new to this genre of photography, Ramadan is the perfect way to start this new endeavor.
