Haiti General: Downtown Port-au-Prince

Port-au-Prince, Haiti 080310 The Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral was among the structures destroyed during the January earthquake. Destroyed building in downtown Port-au-Prince. (Essdras M Suarez/ Globe Staff)/ MET Behind the scenes: Part of my job during this trip to Haiti was to get general photos of how Haiti’s capital looks like now 8 months after the earthquake. So I spent a little bit of my time in-between my other three assignments, going to the downtown area- one of the hardest hits- and simply watching daily life. TECH STUFF: All shot with two cameras. One with the 70-200 2.8 and a 24-70mm 2.8. ISO varied from 400 to 5000 depending upon the lighting situation. WB: Cloudy and AWB.

You have such an eye for these scenes. Storytelling is paramount, but not at the expense of fine, fine photographs.

How did you feel about safety being there now versus other times? Improved, not improved?
