Loving people I often ask for a portrait and talk with the people I’ve just made a image of. Quite often the common denominator for these random meeting is content.
My Project Time is change (#TIC)is slowly picking up speed. Now there’s a page in my portfolio/project section on this site, where you can check it out. #TIC is at the moment (sic) what broods my mind the most, so I’ll soon update with more pics.
Been photowalking in Stockholm only a few times, last occasion was in September last year (2015). But it pays off to review older pics. So here, a totally new set on an old event.
Half the pics I’ve redone since last year, half are all new.
Whenever I walk the streets, I look a lot for people in all shapes and of all kinds of action. Well aware that my presence alone manipulates reality (as it should be), I really don’t believe inte the so-called paradigm of candid street photography: “To not interact or influence what’s happening.”
You can read more about my stand on this with “rules” in street photography here (click). That said, Ive seen how the interaction between photographer and motif results in moments that change over time. Because time is change.
Here’s an example of what I’m talking about.
On social media (for example Instagram) I use the hashtag #tic for these pics.
Silly or not, I’m glad that someone else like to share my pics. Sometimes (on Instagram) I add the hashtag #Shootoff and some of those pics get shared. These are the latest nine pics that got shared by Shootoff. And my normal 20-40 likes/pic add upp to a little more. Nice.
Can you guess which of these nine that got the highest acclaim?
Yup, thats the one. “Thru it all”, botton middle…
Kids. Are so much more expressive than adults. Normally.
Six weeks ago I was in Stockholm, where there were many opportunities for street photography. Here three ladies that I met during “Photowalk Stockholm”.
Street photography isn’t that hard. And especially never as hard as many seem to think. And the true benefit is meeting all nice and beautiful people. As the pair I show you here. I took some portraits of hr, mainly because I really liked her necklace. But they were happy and easygoing. And really liked what I was doing.
No, wait! Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. You’ll get there in due time.
