Last Saturday Karen needed to go into Munich to collect and ship books for a client. For the collecting, carrying and packing she needed some help, so I took the opportunity to practice with the Fuji X100. I only had moments within the two hours we were there, but that was enough for some benefit.
I was, still am, going through all my millions of pictures trying to get organised and realised my "practicing" on insects was a real help with street photography.
The rules and protections for photographing people in a public space differ from country to country. Surely though, irrespective of the laws, street photographers have a responsibility to care about the dignity and the privacy of the people we photograph? I think we do.
Bad Reichenhall is a town that has produced salt since the beginning of time. Nestled in-between imposing mountains, the town is an unusual mixture of industrial and elegant architecture. - In this video I show the town, the salt works, a little street photography and the hotel lake area.
Got to go to Munich for a Street Photography "moment". Included a "TIP" that is a little unorthodox at the end... @4:25. Froze, got a few pics and found new areas.... and found a new product for photography!
A city with an amazing history with architecture and atmosphere to match. It is a wonderful city with very old buildings and a canal system.
Rangefinder cameras give a larger view onto the scene, DSLRs don’t. This, in street photography, can make a difference when the composition is disturbed by people or objects unexpectedly coming into your composition. In this video I suggest 4 ways in which a DSLR can be used to see the scene larger than the image
I think it is difficult asking people for pictures yet still ensuring we are doing “street photography”. I don’t think Henri Cartier-Bresson asked and risked his “decisive moment”! What do you think?
These are the 5 main points that influence COMPOSITION in my street photography. In this video I share some of my approach & what I do, when I am out taking them. Hopefully you will find something that is new and worth trying. Enjoy. Alex.,
I am not into poetry, but I was preparing a set of videos on my thoughts on various subjects and found some of my “script” rhyming. As a result I got sidetracked and had a go… Thought I would share it with you for fun. Alex.,
