Shot at the famous Souq Waqif (located in the City of Doha, State of Qatar) while walking around and talking to the people in the Video. I used my 7D and a Sigma 30mm – 1.4 lens. All shots are hand-held to capture the experience and flair from a visitor’s POV, no extra lighting or any other additional gear was used, as I didn’t want to scare people and also catch the real Souq experience.
