Street Photography isn’t just about people, it is also about buildings and shadow. We don’t have buildings of the same grandeur as places like London, Paris or New York, but we do have buildings that are worthy in their own right.
I’m not going to say that Gosport is a boring town, it patently isn’t. But there are several channels on You Tube; Street Photography in a small town, or in a boring town. These give excellent tips on how to use your situation. I acknowledge that the header picture isn’t brilliant, but there is love, and light, shadow and colour. How is it in mono?
Actually, the picture works as well as the colour version. It works for me, I like both – but I would tend towards preferring the B&W version.
One thing I haven’t talked very much about for a while is digital photography. When I first became interested in photography, were were roughly two decades away from our (as in the family) having a functional digital camera. It wasn’t brilliant, and it was expensive, and you really couldn’t do much with it, the processing software wasn’t sophisticated. As time marched on phones gained cameras, that to be honest were a joke, we get closer to today and with my current phone, I have a camera which pretty much outperforms my DSLR, a Nikon.
Of course with the DSLR you have the advantage of changing lenses, and of course the glass of a DSLR has almost always beaten a phone. One has to ask how long that will be the case?
What this all boils down to is that I love digital photography. I love that the technology allows me to do things that would pretty much have been impossibly difficult for me in the analog era.
I’ve just checked and see that I did a post with exactly the same title. Ooops – but I’m not going to change anything. Edited.
