Fish Market Girl

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 1 July 2013 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

If you ever visit Bergen in Norway a visit to the Fish market is an absolute must, there's so much going on and for a photographer you don't know where to point your camera next.
This girl was serving someone and seemed so animated telling the customer about the fish she was selling.

Canon EOS 500D 1/400 second F/5.0 ISO 400 125 mm


Unfortunately I don't seem to have as much time as I would like at the present to get on AM3, but I am putting shots on from time to time and will try to visit others when I can.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
