I spend a lot of time stuck in traffic in Cairo, and find it's great place to take street photos since people tend to be focused on crossing the street in one piece rather than on whether someone is trying to snap a picture of them. It's also a great opportunity to capture the chaos and bustle of Cairo, a city constantly moving. I tend to take A LOT of images. My motto is: Shoot now, edit later. Once I'm off the road, I look through what I've captured and choose the most compelling images. When it comes to editing an image, I feel a lighter touch is better.
