Oil Cans by danbrann

Oil Cans

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.

Marsh Pride cubs on the move

One of the best wildlife studies I have seen for some time.......the superb, clever use of DOF makes it.......the expression is priceless.

A real winner, for publication in many formats.

Just reading this sad, poignant post when our twenty year old Birman Tinke jumped on to my lap, as if she knew.....she is still here purring away.

Street portrait by EddieDaisy

Street portrait

I really like your Street Portrait series.......I know that they aren't the easiest things to do, especially if your subject is totally unknown to you.

Street Portraits and Street Photography are my favourite genre, I love the buzz of introducing myself then explaining my ongoing Street Portrai Project as a way of gaining their confidence, it is usually during the following chat that my best shots are captured.

Well done you......keep 'em coming.

BHANGARA DRUMMER

Thank you all for your votes and positive comments.....I very much appreciate feedback of any kind, it is that way that I continue to learn and to improve.

Tony, I do have a purpose made waterproof cover for the GX7 but using the viewfinder makes keeping the camera totally dry is impossible.

Quote: Lovely story - it's interesting to get the background info. I wish I had the courage to do street photography and approach people in this way .... Eileen

Hi, Eilleen,

Thank you for your kind comment...........Yes! Street Photography, especially portraiture does take a little courage, but the key is to be approachable yourself, not pushy or gushing.......a smile and a relatively small camera helps, I use a M4/3 rds now.

I have lived all my life in a relatively small town, I wear a camera wherever I go, so have become known to some as .....The a Man With a Camera.........that doesn't mean that I know most of my subjects, but, they may have noticed me so are relatively relaxed when asked.

I do go to Stratford-Upon-Avon regularly, it is an obvious tourist area, so almost every none local has a camera of some kind, and again a relaxed holiday atmosphere, this helps too.

My specially worded card helps too, it describes in full, my ongoing Street Portrait Project and states very clearly that portraits wil be used online, in possible competitions and in a future publication.
It has all my contact details, and an invitation to email for free online copies, or to request a Print if in my home town.

Thank you too to the other contributors to this thread.

Do you have TOPAZ Filters?

If so......Try the range in TOPAZ DETAIL......there are other filters in the range too.

Old School by Philip_H

Old School

Very well done.....but if I was to be picky, the obvious modern yellow pencil spoils the illusion, recount it and you have a very interesting study.
