  • Don't ask

    This is Street Photography at its very, very best......

    Inspirational, and funny.

    Now a serious question.....I consider the shot to have potential for Exhibition.

    But, as a very keen Street Photographer.......would, you, could you, should you, did you, request a ...Model Release Form.....signed by the subject?

    I stopped exhibiting my Street Photographs, for this very reason.......it is inhibiting enough to capture such a serendipity moment....but to have to chase after the lady....or any ....Street.....subject, kills the moment....I stopped exhibiting Street photographs after exhibition organisers insisted....no release....no exhibit...

    Not to hijack this thread.......a subject worthy of sensible debate, I think?

  • Bad Day Self Portrait

    This is a very honest and moving shot......you are a brave man, who remains positive in the face of adversity. I'm ancient now, but suffered many setback on the way........I discovered that many of them had silver linings....and that's no Bull.

    My good lady and I had been married for less than a year, she was pregnant, and we were asked to leave our tied cottage after a disagreement and exploitation ......I must have looked and felt like you at the time.......But with the help of an extremely good employer ( not our landlord) we were able to put a deposit on our first freehold property, a two up two down cottage that cost 475.

    We haven't looked back since.....it is our 56th wedding anniversary today.

    Onwards and Upwards 👍

    You were ...Bang on Target...., an example of perfect Street Photography, your processing is spot on, and....you have captured the moment perfectly.

    Hi, Chrissy,

    This isn't a criticism but is an observation on what I see, please bear with me.....Smile)

    You have captured a scene that could easily be from the past....The back lane, the washing lines, the stone walls and gravelly path beautifully .....all ruined by the large plastic refuse bin.

    This is my gripe, these things have become a very real blight on many town and village streets.....I remember being in the beautiful Cornish village of Moushole, the picturesque houses very narrow streets and lanes all marred by rows of over large refuse bins of three colours, they made it practically impossible to take a shot like yours here without including one.

    Rant over....

  • A QUIET MOORING

    It is wonderful that this study has won a VS mode, because it is just one of the many hundred year old glass plate negatives that I re- photographed then made positive in CS6 so all credit must go to that talented unknown photographer using a glass plate camera and a black hood.

  • Laid back

    A wonderful observation, beautifully rendered.

    I too often wonder why much Street Furniture is almost deliberately placed to intrude like the litter bin above.......so sad that so many folk just can't see that too.

  • Street portrait

    Hi, Eddie,

    I am a great fan of your Street Portraits, all well taken and beautifully processed, just one small niggling thought.........without a natural background how does a viewer know that it is indeed, a Street Portrait?

    Not a negative crit, just a honest comment ......My favourite genre is Street Portrature, I get a real buzz from asking complete strangers to give me a minute or so of their time, I then shoot as we chat.

    I really like this, it has a touch of mystery about it...ideal for a book cover perhaps?

    It also has the look of a Man-Ray creation.

    Quote:A good recovery and all the more as the colour pop completes a full diagonal across the picture. I would be tempted to make this a perfect diagonal by cropping the rear of the car on the right


    Thank You PhilT2...

    Yes....I can see what you mean.....I will attend to it right away:

    Cheers!

    I like mono......Workshop studies.....The shiny, dusty, dark, and partly lit mixture of textures just invite exploration and sense of place......of work done, and work about to be done.
