Street Photography by Daniel Eliasson

Today Heads Wide Open would like to introduce, a Photographer from Sweden, who specializes in street photography, as he says :“to capture the perfect moment, and to document our lives today”.
Daniel Eliasson, that’s his name, told us a little about his work, technique and plans for future:
About his photography:
I have a great fascination for people, and with my photography I try to freeze the emotion and personality of the people I capture. When I photograph, my eyes constantly wanders around to find a person with a certain emotion. I try to feel the next shot, instead of thinking. My technique is to get really close to my subject. As a spectator, I want you to feel as if you were part of the scene instead of just watching.

What is his equipment:
I’m mostly equipped with the same equipment; my Canon 5D MKIII with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 USM L. I usually end up zoomed to 24-35mm on my favorite lens.

Why Street Photography?
The best thing about street photography, is all the different types of people I meet and talk to after taking their shot. My most memorable man was a homeless man, that asked me to take a happy picture of him after my first shot.

Daniel organizes workshops:
A couple of times a year I arrange workshops in street photography. The next workshop will be held 14th of March at Scandinavian Photo in Gothenburg, Sweden.
