Urban Sketcher

I watched this woman sketching on the street in Cambridge during the Mill Road Winter Fair. She was drawing in her sketchbook whilst looking at the people across the road at a food stall.

I am pretty sure she is in the Urban Sketchers Meetup group because I spoke with another sketcher further along the road and he told me the group members were dotted about.

As you can see, this first image is a detail from the full frame shown below. I shot it with a Fuji X-T2 and the 18-55mm kit lens.

1/250th second at f4.5, ISO 800, focal length 42.5mm

The weather was dull, it was the first time I had used the camera, and the streets were pretty crowded. So all in all, a thumbs up for the camera and lens.

I particularly like the way the camera has captured the delicate champagne colour of the woman’s hair below her ear, near the collar.
