To me, street photography has a documentary notion. And you just don’t manipulate the pic, the moment when it was taken.
I’ve gotten sidetracked in one specific way, and thats in what I call the Artsy project. On a page/portfolio on this site you can see some of the results. And, as you might see, it all starts with one of my street pics. Click here to see them.
Sometimes I just browse older pics for fun, today more so to look for one to use for the new version of my Street photography course. Found this one, taken at Brick Lane, London, in April a year ago. I like the plain colors and the simple elements. So there you have it.
Sometimes you really like an image, no matter how technically imperfect it might be. This is certainly one of those, taken with my at the time brand new Fujifilm x100t. Seeing this, I remember that lukewarm night, efter being walking about for maaaany hours. Normally, the streets of Amsterdam are full or at least semi full with cyclists. This late, not so much.
Do work quite often in the full square format, via Instagram. As I’ve shown before, magic appears as you crop to use the composition trick with Dominant eye. Here some of the pics from my account @gunnarfnovik.
