Week 12/52 “Dialog” – Selection

Week 12 introduction and post! I thought I had posted the theme for week 12 already. Oops. Anyways, pick of the week above. The shot again uses construction signs amongst other street signage as a means to communicate the theme.

B sides below as usual. I am still shooting weekly, but just been busy with work to do a write up. Promise to do better for week 13!

Week 09/52 “Soft” – Selection

Top pick for my 09/52 last week for the theme soft. I really like the driver and passenger’s annoyed/angry expression in contrast to the soft afternoon light. Other explorations and images below. Amazing what “soft” light can do to an image. It gets addictive shooting in soft light. I am going to miss it once winter comes and the days get shorter.

Week 08 – Update

I have been enjoying shooting over the last couple of days in shutter priority  mode (typically 1/50s) at 100 ISO. You forget how movement adds another level of interest on an otherwise average image.

In saying that I also don’t want to just rely on this sort of trickery to make an interesting image without any sort of meaning/story.

Week 02 – Nail

Random word generator has gifted me with the word “nail” for this week.

Initial thoughts on how I could approach this theme out in the street.

  1. Focusing on alot of hands to show nails. Need to get super close
  2. Using nails (the once you hammer) as a foreground element for some juxtapositions.
  3. Hang out with bouncers in nightclubs and wait until they kick someone drunk out
  4. Police arresting someone.
  5. A crucifixion

Should be an interesting .

Week 01/52 “SECRET” – Selection

Week 01 has come to a quick end and now its selection time. The theme secret was alot harder than I thought. I made some photos which I really enjoyed however they did not go with the theme and thus did not make the cut. This culled quite abit of the photos, simplifying the selection process.

The photos below are the ones which I believe relate the strongest to the theme.

In the end, the photo that won for me was the inital shot I took in Fremantle from New Years Day of a woman sitting by herself outside a cafe. Although it doesn’t have a strong story, I like the ambiguity, colour pallate ,small details and subtlety of the image.

Week 01 – Getting over the low hit rate in street photography

A scorcher of a day today in Perth. 41 degrees Celsius /105.8 Fahrenheit is expected! I’ll be staying in, keeping cool and will not be hunting for the project. A sort of street photography recovery/rest day. This forced me to have a look at all the photos from the previous days of shooting.. alot of… Continue reading Week 01 – Getting over the low hit rate in street photography
