Old man biking street photograph Toronto


Going out and doing street photography on the streets of any town or city is full of significant visual stimuli. Similar to New York, street photography in Toronto is impressive because of the many diverse cultures in the city. But it is inevitable that the larger the city, the more interesting the street photography subjects you will find.

I love this image taken just yesterday. While I was walking around viewing some of the hundreds of photography exhibits during this year’s Contact Photography Festival.’ This old man cycling was a sudden surprise. I was just about to cross the street of Dundas when he happened across my path. I quickly took a series of shots, but sadly only two were focused. This is an example of street photography where the man riding the bike was on more of an angle and another where he was dead on as I was manually panning.

When shooting street photography in Toronto or any other location, the lesson learned from this series of shots is to keep your camera setting ready for anything. I made the mistake of having the camera setting set for some back street laneway architecture shots and lost the possibility of some even more exciting pictures from a fast-moving subject. I usually try to keep my camera set to capture any spontaneous event that requires you to lift the camera and shoot instantly. You will capture fast-moving objects and keep them tact sharp with these settings.
