Sometimes you get interesting images when you position yourself on a high spot where you can shoot down. Since people don’t see you right away you can take your time photographing them.
Enjoy the image and keep on photographing!
Let us continue one more week with street photography and build our own portfolio.
For me this is kind of a sad photograph. There is a person sleeping on the street. Actually he is sleeping on his own open suitcase. Around him is a big mess. I wonder about his story. What happened in his life that he ended up here on Market street in San Francisco?
Images make one think and stir up feelings and the best images tell a story. Enjoy and keep on photographing!
This is an image that makes one think. There is a lot of information in this photograph and a big contrast. In the front there is the homeless person. His underwear is sticking out, he has no shirt and his face is hardly noticeable. There is a lot of darkness around him. And there are the “ordinary” citizens walking by. It does not look like anybody is caring about the man on the street. Everybody is busy. The scene is photographed on Market Street in San Francisco. You can see in the upper right hand side the “ba” short for “bart” the bay area transportation system.
Enjoy the image and keep creating challenging images!
Personally I love to photograph people in the streets. In the beginning I used my dslr and I realized pretty fast that people were shying away seeing a big camera with large lenses. I am doing much better with my little system camera. I published in the past some of my street images on this blog and I want to continue to add more photos this week and I challenge you to go out into the street and photograph people, what they do, their feelings, hopes and dreams while they are out in public.
this is one of my favorite images. There is a man sitting at a bus station looking into the street. His hands are folded. What is he thinking? Is he relaxed, happy? You noticed I gave this image a lot of negative space which gives the viewer a lot of room to meditate about this man.
Enjoy and keep on photographing!
