Group of teens waiting in lineup


Group of teens waiting in the lineup have fun with the camera and pose with amusing gestures. The Temple Bar district is the entertainment hub of Dublin Ireland. Once the group spotted me photographing, they immediately and on mass started posing for the camera. Every person assumed a different gesture and posed, making the image unique and visually appealing. The one girl on the right seemed disinterested and visually anchored the image with an opposing posture.

When walking the streets, I have my Sony A7rIII set to auto ISO as with a shutter speed set to where I can retain sharp focus. Even at 2,000 ISO, the noise level was so minor; the image did not require any noise reduction applied in Lightroom. The freedom of Sony’s remarkably low now image capture at high ISO has changed the way I approach street photography. I am now much more spontaneous and free to observe the streets for exciting opportunities.

Gear: Sony ILCE-7RM3, Sony FE 24-70mm f2.8 GM lens. 
Settings: Focal length 40mm; exposure 1/160 sec; f2.8; ISO 2,000.
