KEEP SHOOTING
Fez Morocco

Whenever possible, keep shooting is my motto. There's often more than one composition in any given situation. Such was the case in the medieval Fez Medina, a buzzy place to be, as well as a difficult place to shoot.

Gadzillion people moving briskly in narrow streets, changing light levels, mule caravans careening along pushing one aside for safety, all combine to challenge the photographer hoping to isolate subjects. A vendor pushing fez hats allowed me to photograph him against a tile wall.


Due to the hub-bub around me I was tempted to stop after the overall shot, but I knew there were more images to be had here. Staying with the Canon 28-135mm lens, I simply zoomed in closer and closer, tried some unusual angles, and prayed that the pop-up flash would not blast off the shiny tiles.

I lucked out, and yes, bought a hat.
