Street Shots: Kathmandu, Nepal

Narrow

While making my way to check out Basantapur square in Kathmandu I got the urge to shoot some street photography. Pulling my EPL-1 out of my backpack and mounting my trusty 45mm 1.8 lens I headed off down the street excited to feed one of my passions in life.

After about 10 mins of shooting I realized Kathmandu is a street photographers paradise! Every second something or someone interesting would catch my attention keeping me left eye glued to my viewfinder. Also the streets and squares are very busy which makes for an environment were you can really get in close without being detected to capture those candid moments in people’s lives.

    Awesome pics Josh! I feel like I’m walking down the street with you!

  2. Wonderful photos – another few days and I’ll be using my EPL3 in those same streets. What setting did you use, your colours are so vibrant.

    • Thanks!! My settings were Aperture Priority, F1.8-3.0 auto iso, I-inhance mode. Probably the biggest reason the pics are so vivid was the lighting. I was shooting between 5:00-6:00 pm which had that nice Dawn Dusk light that brings out colors.

    Wow, I am truly impressed. You take such great photos. But it’s a one thing. You are a really brave traveller. Greetings from Poland 🙂 Btw, you have the same last name as the great Polish vocalist had.
