    Default Fixa-me-tyre

    Or rather, "fixa-me-chain"... old man repairing bicycles in the streets of old Beijing...

    looks like a typical snapshot to me. try not to take all shots at eye-level, try to search for different angles
    eat. drink. shoot

    Errr... this was not taken at eye level. It was taken at "hip/waist" level with a standard lens... opps...

    not bad. however i find the colorful cloth distracting. takes the focus away from the subject.

    I will be careful of the environment the next time I am shooting. Thanks for noting that.

    distracting background... may be using wide apperture to blurr it...
    also can try different angle.

    Just a thought, wouldn't that not tell what kind of environment the subject is in? I guess my intention to include more "information" about the surrounding of the subject was not executed as well as I wanted. It was meant to be journalistic, not portraiture kind of shot.

    I will keep this suggestion in mind the next time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
