Thread: Morning Market Shoot

  1. #1

    Default Morning Market Shoot

    Hi guys,

    Just wondering whether you all know of any wet markets to shoot.
    Hoping to potray them while they're stocking their items and preparing for the daily sales.
    Preferbly the wetter and more crowded it is the better. It'll be best if it's not totally blocked off by tall buildings so that can have some shots with the warm sun rise reflecting the floor or even silhoutteing them.

    Also, how many hours of morning sleep do u reckon I have to sacrifice to get these kind of shots yeah? =P

    - Bob

    ps
    Are these markets still open on weekends or they got holiday also.

    Ripper, best to catch them is close to 7am or earlier if you can and stay will 10-11am thereabouts.
    I might be organising a private shoot to 1 market and housing estate...but not so soon...november...see whether you are interested to join us then.

    P.S: Sundays too

    The following comments come from a local vegetable seller:

    You should ask the market folks first before you take photos of them while they are doing their work. You wouldn't like people to take photos of you while you are working right?

    Actually cannot blame the older folks lah, they are pan tang about cameras. Nowsadays, if i ever encounter these folks, i stop shooting, move to a further distance then zoom in from there.
