Women Discussing in Jemma el-Fnaa

Two Moroccan women in discussion on the streets of Jama El f’na.

Morocco was an intense and beautiful country - the opportunities for street photography were nearly endless. However, I experienced some very tense moments when the occasional person would get very upset about being photographed candidly.

I realized that if one wanted to photograph the locals without confrontation, it would have to be covertly, with my camera strung at my waist using a wide-angle lens.

In some ways, this limited me -- but it made me far less noticeable and helped me capture scenes in the streets that would otherwise be interrupted immediately if they noticed a foreigner snapping a photo.

It was taken with a Canon 6D, using a Canon 24-105MM F4 lens.
