Street Photography In Mexico City

in photography •  6 months ago

Walking the streets of Mexico City a few weeks ago after seeing some art by famous muralist Diego Rivera which you can see more of on Discovering Diego Rivera Murals In Mexico City, I took the opportunity to practice doing street photography.

All of these images were shot on a Canon T7i with a 50mm, f 1.8 prime lens. I love using this lens because it has no zoom so you have to use your feet to move around and frame the shot. Every image in this post was shot in manual mode with no post processing. It was all done in camera so what you see is what you get.

I have nothing against post processing. I'm just practicing getting as much as the image colors, focus, and framing as possible right in the camera. These were all shot in RAW mode so I did convert the images to JPEG so I could post them online.

Here are some of my favorites. Let me know what you think.

Good to know. I don't know why this post was not noticed by you. It has a lot of words.

Like most curation projects, we have decided to let our voting power that was reset by HF20 recharge before we will resume curation - we only announced this on our Discord since posting on Steem was not possible due to the negative RC bug at the time. Tomorrow we will review all posts of the last week including yours, but please keep in mind that while we review every post manually, we only curate the best entries and using the tag #travelfeed is no guarantee for an upvote.


Fair enough. I was introduced to this tag by my friend @lizanomadsoul. Looking forward to reading what you curate. There will be plenty more stories of my continuous travels for you to choose from.


Awesome, we can't wait to read them! We resumed our curation yesterday

Hey @luzcypher, they're all amazing, and done by such talented artists, your shots of the performers were cool too.

I would have to say this is my favourite because it's just so different from anything I've ever seen, especially in Canada. In Mexico, skulls and themes of death/dying/afterlife are so nonchalant!

I think people would be horrified if they awoke here and saw this on a building.


Check out this mural in Cancun painted on the side of the fire department building.


WOW!!! I can't even imagine how long that would have taken!

I love the feel you have achieved with these photos. I cannot wait to visit Mexico!


Thanks. Mexico is really big with lots to offer. What part of Mexico are you thinking of visiting?

Great work man, these pictures are great. Those murals are really beautiful. You definitely got some vivid colors out of that camera set up. I think that nifty fifty will be my first lens purchase. I've been rocking this 18-55 it kit lens which only opens to 3.5.

I love the second one. Really cool piece of Art!! Melbourne is such a great place for street art like these ones.
