Antigua Guatemala’s typical “I wish you were here” picture

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Antigua Guatemala's typical I wish you were here picture © Rudy Giron

This picture was captured during a street photography walk around Antigua Guatemala. The approach here is how to photograph from behind people’s heads. My approach is to get really close, with a wide angle, take two frames, one with the focus on the subject the other with the focus on the camera or smartphone camera. I have come to realise that often enough we actually improve the posed shot for ourselves as well as for the other photographer if the person takes the picture the moment the subject breaks the pose to laugh at you taking a picture from behind. There are so many more tips and approaches I share during the photo walks. Make sure you sign up for one next time you visit Antigua Guatemala.

    Love the perspective in this photo. Reminds me of the Las Meninas painting.

    • Thanks for the feedback, I’ll will look up Las Meninas paintings.
