Faceless In the Crowd
Today’s challenge is “a Face in the Crowd” although I decided to rename it “Faceless in the Crowd” as the challenge is about showing people in crowds whereas their faces aren’t visible. I went back to my files and found plenty of these. Like the one above showing the parade for Bastille day. I managed to shoot those characters at an angle so that none of them is recognisable. Let alone the other characters in the background. For this picture, I had to stay on one foot on a wall, nearly breaking my neck, so that my camera would be able to shoot over the heads of the onlookers lining the road.
Another technical trick: shooting against the sun on a hellishly hot mid-Summer day.The crowd on the esplanade of in the “Invalides” on Bastille day last year.
