    Street (images thread)

    There are enough folks here doing street shooting so, I thought I will start a separate images thread.

    Please do not restrict yourself to color or B&W or format or camera or brand.

    Here are a couple to kick off.

    ..still some only will shoot the rears as in that fine shot of yours.

    What was that guy with a camera trying to do in the background?

    BTW, I should really make some time to visit Paris only for street shooting.

    Re: Street (images thread)

    the photos so far displayed open an interesting debate to what each of us think is 'street photography'

    To me it has to have that element of the stolen moment... but that moment r has to tell a story or more interestingly suggest a story or even just offer an interesting composition.

    I also think that people faces are important... sometimes backs of people can work.. but the face maks a picture

    heres a few more to ponder

    Re: Street (images thread)

    "Stolen moments" do come, albeit rarely. Anyone going out to make street snaps would come back and trash an entire 6-8hrs of snaps (have done it many many times). While not every snap becomes instantly satisfying, without a camera and the constant snapping, it is easier to miss what you see as well.

    Here are couple of old (~1 year) snaps:





    and some not so old..







    I am happy to see a variety and the enthusiasm.

    (btw, what happened to YBH III's post?)

    Not sure about that, K. Even when very reasonable gear is at my disposal, I screw up something basic as the focus.

    Yes, it could be. BTW, wrong gear for street- a 28mm T/S lens on D300..

    helen ... cool shots... still doing the warm and wet stuff?.... guessing m2/3/6/7 and hp5 or Pan-x... maybe tri-x dipped in exotic cocktails of rodinol.....washed, dried and bound up in an enlarger and gently exposed to soft caresses of light and shade, then viewed with rising excitement under a soft red light.

    12 megapixels 16 bit TIFF and RAW processing will never ever sound as sexy :-)

    Nice variety all! Helen, Momentum (India- another country I would love to make time specifically for street photography), Carl, Audii (2nd shot), et al.

    Most of the time, I only encounter bicyclists here.



    Keep them coming.

    (Kevin, I even have a 4x5 RF cam with a 75/4.5 Biogon! )

    It would seem from the photos so far that the interpretation of street photography is oriented heavily toward the inclusion of people. A few, including a couple of Helen's excellent examples, offer a different view of the street (i.e. people are absent or incidental). I thoroughly enjoy viewing photos of both types, although the former (people oriented) is one I rarely take.

    Faces and expressions make a very human, often intimate, connection with the viewer. But I think there are many examples of excellent street photos (including a couple of my favourite HCB's and Erwitt's) in which face details are hidden or unclear.
    Best regards,
    John.

    Vivek, do you have a day job, or do you just roam the streets and canals? Good capture with the bicycle shot.

    Bicycles are everywhere. If I step out of the house, there are people and bicycles. That simple.

    Very rarely I roam the streets for making photos. Very rarely I step out of the house without a G1 with a Computar-TV 25/1.3 on it.

    Unlike Seattle (for example), where it costs an arm and leg to park your car for an hour (and despite that most drive their SUVs), here (the Hague) it is down right impossible to drive even the tiniest of the cars in certain areas of the city. You can see people in 3 piece suits commuting by tram, buses or even bicycles.

    OK Vivek, you've got me interested... I'll get out and see if I can emulate my hero's here

    Here are a couple I have to hand... more later!






    By the way, the York Festival of Angels is a fantastic opportunity for street shooting in December.



    Kind Regards

    Brian
