Parade of Champs
Photographer Kyle Jones took to the streets to document the Denver Broncos Super Bowl Victory Parade. He caught lots of nice moments and grabbed the below frame on his way to the festivities which really caught our eye.
“I sure hope he stops at that tree!!!”
Kyle is a Canon shooter, the equipment he used the day of the parade was a 5D Mark 2, 50mm 1.8 for wider, environmental shots and 100mm 2.8 macro (not the L version), for close ups. Plus he used his 580EXII for fill.
“One thing about street photography, I always keep my camera in my hand, I do not try to hide it or try to be a detective. A parade like the Bronco Victory Rally is actually easy because most everyone is dressed up and loves to have their photo taken. If you do it long enough, you get an intuition about people and can tell if they don’t want you to snap their photo, in those cases, if the subject really interests me and I think it will make a good photo, I’ll just go and ask them. The worst thing that can happen is they say, “no.” Then, you just move on, there are plenty of subjects, especially in larger metropolitan areas.
Make sure you always keep your wits about you and know what’s going on around you at all times, I know carrying an expensive camera can be tempting to snatch for some people, so, don’t get so lost in taking photos, that you become oblivious to your surroundings. Take care, be aware! Most of all, have fun, I find people fascinating and there are so many stories to be told, go find them.”
