Street photography journal #3 - Rainy days

in photography •  4 months ago

The rain is just not letting us enjoy the summer this year. It's been stubbornly going on for the most part of the last two months, so I figured I might as well have some fun with it. Like I wrote in one of my previous posts, street photography in the rain is incredibly satisfying. The streets are rich with reflections, textures, umbrellas, saturated colors...

Recently I've been admiring the works of Saul Leiter who used to include a lot of abstract elements in his street photographs. He used raindrops, snow, blurry windows and reflections together with unusual manual focusing to bring painting-like qualities in his work. I tried to include some of those in the way I shoot.

Let me know what you think about the photos in the comments. :)

mene njegove slike iz pedesetih (tjset boje) podsecaju, mozda gresim, na fotografije Wong Kar-Wai-jevih filmova :)

a sto se tice tvojih, podsecaju me po spontanosti na Matt Stuart-a...i najlepsa mi je ona preko puta kfca, ako se ne varam, na stajalistu je zena sa detetom kao i onaj "vozic dece" :) svaka cast na hrabrosti, jer mene nekad strah da fotografisem ljude, msm prekih pogleda i sl. :)

Bacih pogled na In the mood for love posto nisam pratio njegove filmove i definitivno ima slicnosti. Jake boje, subraming, kombinovanje vise layera da se dobije utisak dubine... Mozda je bio inspirisan njime. :) Ja sam ga pronasao preko par modernih ulicnih fotografa iz Londona, npr. sixstreetunder i joshkjack. Sjajni su.

Nisam mislio da cu ovde naci nekoga ko je upoznat sa radom Matt Stuart-a haha. Nije da sam pronasao posebnu inspiraciju u njegovima slikama, ali onu sa golubom sam cesto pokusavao da iskopiram (bez uspeha naravno :D ). Svakako hvala sto nas stavi u istu recenicu haha.

I da, strah u ulicnoj fotografiji je normalna pojava, cak i iskusni ga imaju u odredjenoj meri. Al naviknes se na to. Ja uvek preporucim ljudima koji bi da probaju - da se stave u ulogu turiste. Mozes hodati ulicama i "praviti film", niko nece znati da ih fotkas. :) I ovde na pocetku ima jedan interesantan "trik". :D

Taj film je strava, jos Chungking Express i 2046 su takodje zanimljivi. Dugo nisam znala da je My Blueberry Nights, sa Norah Jones njegov :) zapravo, ne znam ni koliko gotivis istocne, a vec preporucujem xD
Upravo ih zapratih na instagramu, jesu vala :)

Mene generalno fotografija zanima, ali vidim da ovde ima dosta ljudi sa slicnim interesovanjima i to je jako lepo videti, jos kad o cemu imate prozboriti, strava. :)
Hahah, ovaj Zack je car...pokupila sam par trikova def.... ok je kad si sa nekim al ako fotkas sam, evo, leba mi, ne znam :) to moram da menjam, hvala na savetu.

Srećno kad se baciš na ulično fotkanje. :) Videćeš da postane rutina s vremenom. I hvala na predlozima, definitivno ću da overim ove filmiće.

Dobar je Zack, ima zanimljive tutoriale za 1 flas photography, zanimljiv mi je i ovaj video gde su mu uvalili starog kodaka i nikon blic

.
Mozda u pocetku bude lakse da fotkas sa velikim zumom, al onda gubi ponekad taj osecaj kao da si u centru zbivanja.

sad cu da ga pogledam. moj aparat ne podleze beskonacnom zumu :D a i sto kazes, gubi se osecaj. svakako cu primeniti ove savete sto pre i onda ih stavim ovde da vidite kako sam prezivela xD

Amazing shots. Some shots are extraordinary to me, especially the kid dancing in the rain, the dog in the water and the kid looking at are just brilliant and these 4 people walking in a line shot, remind me of Beatles.

Sometimes you get lucky to be in the right place at the right time - and all you have to do is capture the moment. :) I'm glad you enjoyed the shots!

I'm happy to hear that. :)

That's some magnificent work up there to be honest.Some of the shots are really extraordinary and cherrishing.You should really keep up that good work because not everybody has the art of photography because its not only about the lenses and the camera but passion.☺

Such a narrative in your shots... really shows "life" as it is! Awesome, I loved them all!!

·

That's a great compliment! Spontaneity is probably the most important quality I look for in my photos. Glad you enjoyed them again. :)

generalno mi se svidja editing. a najlepsa fotka mi je devojcice sto uziva na kisi. svakako nije najbolja tehnicki ali mi je super dozivljaj. svi su se razbezali i sakrili, samo ona uziva. "Some people feel the rain; others just get wet" :)

·

Upravo, dobro uhvacen momenat znaci vise od tehnicki savrsene slike. :)

Tienes unas bellas fotografías, me gustan mucho, hay lugares y gente bella, compartiendo, relacionandose
