This is really good. You have a keen eye for capturing people on the street doing random, spontaneous stuff. I have a helluva hard time achieving that myself, my photos of people always suck.
Thanks for the feedback Cano, appreciated .
Industar-69 28mm f2.8
Liking these last few mate.
Top of the page shows up your vastly different perspective of the world to mine.
Voigtlander 35mm f2.5
Aaaaaaa dude, this is FANTASTIC. I would have shot it in full color and turned the saturation to 165472, but the black and white approach works awesomely in here with such high contrasts! Love the grainy sky!
Thanks mate - I have a colour version with deep saturation and it took a long time to decide between the two but the gradation of the sky was proving unnatural in colour, so b&w it was
Fujian 35mm f1.7
It's taken hours of research in the last few weeks, but I think I am finally cracking the nut on how to get Silver Efex Pro 2 to translate what I see in my mind's eye.
ACK. This is absolutely awesome.
I very much like this. Did you try upping the exposure in post, exposing the subject right and blowing the background?
Maybe it doesn't work, but I was just wondering.
Thanks . Hmm. I haven't tried your suggestion in my PP as I was ok with the balance at the time, although now the "under exposed" clothing is all I can see .
I'll play around and see how it appears.
You're really smashing the street photography thing. Your images are great, and being a sucker for B&W you've got your PP down.
That really means a lot mate, I appreciate the feedback . To be honest, stumbling onto your website in December and @F1GTR's, was a real wake up call/ source of inspiration as it made me realise I had no direction in my pictures and that my PP was dire at that point. I'm happy with where my B&W is at (mostly), although it's at the cost of my colour progress!
Yeah, I know the feeling. C&C can be a bitch.
Your stuff is coming along so well! The tones are fantastic and there's certainly more elements leading the eye to your subjects.
Altough I quite like how that looks, and understand it was on purpose, I think you overdid the darker parts a bit.
I really was on the fence with it.... I like the look of it when I stand back and look at the whole image, but it can feel heavy at a second glance. I'll work on it tomorrow and see if I can get more balance
It indeed feels heavy, but it also looks awesome. I mean, it's not natural-looking, but at the same time it's absolutely clear that that's precisely the intention
Is the second picture the broken window? I am struggling (visually) to understand the picture. I see a filing cabinet with envelopes sitting in it on a white showroom floor. Can you please help? It is decieving me!
Its a wall, dude! The bottom element is a broken window boarded up from the inside and the top is a vent.
