MATSEY DAKOVICH – TALENTED STREET-PHOTOGRAPHER AND TRAVELER-DOCUMENTIST

I am not a street photographer. I’m just a photographer who sometimes manages to take a good photo on the street

M. Dakovich

Maciej Dakowicz (© Maciej Dakowicz) is a documentary photographer and a master of the truly “street” genre.

Extending the shutter speed creates a crisp, clear, well-lit background, while the subject itself is clearly visible, even if in the background there are luminous night streets of Las Vegas or a brightly lit interior. But this technique does not make it possible to add intentional motion blur to a static frame. Continue reading

But your job at a fashion show is to somehow take perfect photos, while being in a crowd with other photographers, cliched like sardines in a bank, in a dark corner of a very hostile environment where most things are beyond your control.
