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.

Summer is here, the peoples are out and about doing their thing…it is a good time to be alive.  I was shooting the streets  with my good mate Wing looking for that “decisive moment” and did we find it, well we found lots of them, here is a couple and more on my Facebook page (Sean Breadsell – Street Photographer)

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.

a dog's life

Whenever you get doggies in the city, the peoples will come.  Not sure if it is because dog’s are rarely in the city or if it is just that Aussies love their dogs, probably a mixture of both.  Stuff me, that Saint Bernard was huge…I want one of course, to go with my two Goldies.

It’s not every day you see these amazing drummers, they were doing a demo in the city for an up coming tour and no not just this one guy, there was LOTS in the group.  They were like a fierce fighting group, like warriors and what happens when you look around the crowds in these situations….BAM…there it was there, Once Were Warriors!!

 

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
