Street Photography

Shadows (Two Photographs)

These are the fun street photographs that are both simple but made interesting by shadows. Photographers often talk about the importance of the time of day, emphasizing sunrise or sunset. What you don’t hear enough about is the rest of day when the sun is angled making for interesting shadows.


Closed (Three Photographs)

Don’t you hate it when the open sign is lit and the store is closed. I don’t think these make a perfect triptych, but they may come in handy as illustrations for my next book. Though my first book is moving slowly, I do like to write.

 


As Intended (Two Photographs)

When I do window display shots like these my first thought is that this is not what the window designer intended. My angle and my choice of what to shoot, changes the intended display into another form of art. Window displays are sometimes works of art that have impact on viewers, much like photography.


Relaxed (Two Photographs)

The chairs add to this relaxing scene. The photography adds context, texture, and lighting. Eventually I will have enough photographs in this theme for another series of photographs and set of prints.


That Political Look (Two Photographs)

There is a restaurant with two statues on the roof that I believe are meant to represent the Blues Brothers. I was walking by and it looked like an East German politician giving a speech. After many masks, Luminar’s A.I, Sky Enhancer, Photolemur and a bunch of other tricks in my software package I got the mood I was after.

Market Things (Three Photographs)

After the last major Photography Marketing Show I was left wondering what some of the camera companies were thinking. One company putting out so many models at once created some confusion of what is for whom and why (itself creating a market for articles on how to choose). But confusion there is, when you have to read a lot of material to choose or depend on a store clerk to choose a camera. I am glad I am not shopping for a new camera.


Window Display (Two Photographs)I

I have a hard time choosing between these two versions of the same photograph. I often find that window displays, or at least part of them make for excellent and often moody photographs. They give a flavour of the neighbourhood, a taste of style and often tell a story.
