What’s up?

To a street photographer of today, one thing stand out – the smartphone. Wherever I look, someone’s looking down into a cell phone.

Second, the blueish light from the screen help light people faces. And most don’t see me right away (I might have the time to take more than 1-2 pics).

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.
