After being based in Chicago for 1.5 year, I finally went out to photograph this beautiful city. Here are some picture of the Windy City.
It was my first time attending and photographing the Chicago Air and Water show. I arrived at the Oak Beach a little early and was able to locate a decent spot to allow me photographing this event. For more information of the show, please visit here. Here is one of the images captured at the event. It was an eye opening and a great learning experience.
I have been living in the city of Chicago part time for the last few months since I started my new job. I have finally been able to go out and captured some shots of the daily life in a city.
I have been looking for a small, compact full frame camera for a long time. I wanted a camera that I can take with me on a short vacation and still allow me to capture good quality images. I did not have much luck until I decided to pick up a Leica M. Since then, I have been exploring the Street aspect of photography. I have been reading and studying images from the well known photography sites.
I just got back from a week vacation from Chicago. When I am not sightseeing, I had my Leica M around my neck walking around town, practicing and capturing scenery from The Windy City. The city is an amazing town for Street photographers to practice. It was full of interesting people and moments. It is a big learning curve especially for someone who is used to photographing with a DSLR. I hope to continue improving my eye for Street photography. Here are some of my favorite images from this trip. Enjoy!
