posters and peoples

I like to mix my people shots up with posters, and this looked like a great place to stop for a short time.  Trying not to make people feel uncomfortable I am pretty quick shooting and putting the camera down as they’ve walked through the scene. I captured this shot slightly too early  with the lady only entering the view but in the end I felt it had the most impact.

on the leftFor whatever reason I decided to frame this guy on the very left as I enjoyed the architecture around him, contrasting shapes and textures. What was he doing, just reading a menu, not much point for lunch as the place was closed but perhaps he was going back in the evening but whatever it was he made a good moment in time to capture.  Oh yeah, and I shot this on a shiny new Fujifilm X100F.

Over the last week or so I was shooting a roll of Kodak Portra 160 in my Olympus Trip 35, which I have had for over a year without trying it out. Such a fun camera to use and dead simple, any idiot like myself can use it….hey what, who said that!

Generally my film ventures are mixtures of street photography, streetscapes and other totally random stuff.  I must say that every single frame from this roll I was happy with, except maybe the frame when the girl walked in front of the awesome Targa West beast of a car.  I can see myself shooting more and more film in the future, watch this space…

I was asked by my good mate Seng Man from Venture Photography Workshops to join him on a photowalk for the Nikon Centennial, there was about 20 peoples and we wandered the streets of Perth capturing some special moments.

Seng offered his take on Street Photography and how he shoots, very similar to myself only different and that is the beautiful thing with Street Photography we can all shoot our own way, whatever it takes to capture that illusive moment in time.

I was able to share some of my methods and ideas, and shooting a couple of stranger portraits which is always fun as it is the time you interact and have a proper conversation with your subject but that’s for another post.

When shooting the streets I am looking for something interesting, be that a person or group of people doing something odd or just being themselves.  Often I see many things happening that may be somewhat ordinary, but combined and layered in a photograph they make the scene look very cool and worthy of a capture.  These are normal people, going about their business and they all made me happy creating art.layers

I was walking around taking a few photos here and there and was reasonably happy with my street shooting, then I walked past a particular place where the contrast between the background and people was just perfect.  I found a great place to plonk myself on my rear end and waited for right time, the right peoples that made it interesting and I think I got a bunch of great shots….check them out!!!
