    Re: Photo-a-day

    Congrats David.
    First shot's a beaut stavroshamster.

    Keep at it Josh, I too want to get better at street photography and it is difficult but what I've come to learn (from my limited experience) is that not to go out trying to hunt for the perfect photo, but instead to be receptive and try to capture what you see rather than what you're looking at. I really hope that makes any sense; doesn't help that I'm still half asleep.

    Re: Photo-a-day

    What might be helpful Jonny, and just a suggestion, is to consider a caption for each street photo that you think might be worth posting up. Not a jokey one, but something that stands out about the photo - a theme, a thought, a question etc. Help us to interpret what the photo is saying to you, and as a result you'll start thinking about the reason you're taking a photo, which will help you spot and take more meaningful photos in the future.

    For Crazy's I instantly think 'geometry' - the way the rectangles go to rhomboids and they create streaks of light with the moire as they fade to the distance. Of course, that might not be what he was specifically thinking, but the photo has something in it that allows me to think it

    This. If you look at photography forums, a lot of beginners post up any old pictures. Often the first question is "why did you take this picture?" What does it say? What's the story? What are you trying to convey? If you can't answer any of these questions and you've just taken it because you've taken it, is there really any worth in the photo? I went to Portobello Market on Saturday and took my camera. I didn't take a single photo. There were 1000s people there, any of which I could have taken a photo of, but what would be the point? There was nothing (which I saw anyway) that said something to me, or told a story. I'm not saying never take any pictures, but if you do go out looking for photos, try to look deeper than just "oh there's a person on the street, I'll take a photo of him/her". I hope that's of use!

    Re: Photo-a-day

    Some nice advices here about street photography. i will try and take less pics and choose my timing wisely.

    here are some i took yesterday:


    i like this pic because not only is the camera equipment he is using angled using an interesting tripod i have never seen, his own body is angles nearly the same as the camera housed in that tripod. Its as if him and the camera and tripod are an all in one object attached together.


    This one shows a unique top down perspective of a person working in the street. notice how his wheely bin thingy is alligned on a double yellow line and your not allowed to park their!


    Two mates looking bored by listening to some music together.

    Sure.

    I shoot with a Panasonic GF1 with the 20mm F1.7 lens.

    As for PP; I guess you're referring to the last two shots, those were done using a plugin I'm trying out called Alien Skin Exposure 3 (it's available for both Lightroom and Photoshop). There I just tweaked a preset I liked. With previous shots I just played around with a few different setting and techniques (IMO most of those shots turned out mediocre at best. Still learning ).

    The lens would have to get credit for all the 'focussyness', but sometimes I like to amplify the effect by increasing the contrast and crushing the blacks a little.
