I often get people that ask me how I get the shots that I do when traveling. Honestly it’s nothing fancy and usually just involves a flash inside a softbox. When I first started out doing photography one thing I did was devour photography websites for set-up shots (and I still do this, as you never stop learning). It’s one thing to see a photo but it’s even better if you can understand how it was made. Not always easy with photoshop and other tools out there these days but a set-up shot can explain so much in just one visual picture.
So below you’ll find the finished product and the set-up shot of how I captured it with details about the shutter speed, aperture exc. If you want to see the original photos larger (plus others) with a description about each photo, click “Street Photography: 4 Paisas & a Gringo, Plus One Mad Goat.”
