Feeling the pressure.
Ok, I'm frustrated.
My current assignment of Street Photography is going slowly. I've done 2 of the 3 shoots, one is ok, the other is crap! Part of my problem is that shooting as an mzungu with a big camera here in Dar es Salaam pulls in a lot of attention and before I usually can get 'the moment' someone is yelling at me or approaching me with some demand. That said, speaking swahili always cools the situation and the aggression always turns to curiosity which turns to a laugh and everyone is friends. However, any kind of 'moment' is long gone at that point. Ahh street photography, you piss me off some times. But I'm here to learn and that's what I hope this process is all about.
