Any kind of market is always a happening place and a great venue for street photography. And the Dubai Fish Market is no different.
The Fish Market in Dubai was the chosen location for a David Burnett workshop during the Gulf Photo Plus 2013.
If you haven't heard of either David or GPP, let me explain quickly. David Burnett has been a respected photojournalist for the past decades. His pictures from the 2012 Olympics in London are an example for his extraordinary work.
The following video shows selected photos by students from GPP2013 workshops.
I was lucky with two of my pictures being selected.
But I digress. Besides a large section with the freshest catches from the Persian Gulf, this market also got a respectable area for fruits and meat. The latter is not for the faint hearted as the butchers do their work right in front of you. I have never seen a goat's brain taken out before. They do it so quickly that my manual f1.4 focussing was too slow. Maybe I should have gone with f8 to be quicker, but I was in the mood for some creamy bokeh that day.
Thanks for stopping by.
