Before our group headed into Drubronik for the evening, I went for a short walk outside of the hotels' grounds. This photograph overlooking the water was taken from a nearby road. It didn't matter where I went in Croatia, the water was always pristine.
Anna Lisa and I were practising taking photos with shadows (with Roman's guidance). Of course watching him take the shot didn't help us that much because we just couldn't master his technique. Roman is a true street photographer. He holds his camera in one hand, around waist level to take many of his shots. Then he angles the camera to the correct position, takes the shot and keeps walking. This way people do not know that their photo is being taken. I did actually try this in Split and found that I was getting shots that had no people in them and this was not the intention. So this technique requires a lot of practise and a light camera/lens combination that can be held with one hand. My shots were taken in the old fashion way- I got down low to the ground.
I loved the colorful clothes this woman was wearing.
Roman deep in thought while we were eating pizza in an outside cafe.
After dinner Anna Lisa and I wandered around the town before meeting the rest of the group.
There was some great light on some of the buildings by now.
We were taking advantage of the last of the light.
Allan had taken a similar shot in the afternoon so we copied him.
Hardly any light was left now and we weren't using our tripods but we couldn't resist photographing this cat.
Anna Lisa and I had brought our tripods with us so we thought we should actually use them.
This is one of the best times to photograph- the blue hour, after the sun has set and before the sky goes black.
