A weekly selection amongst the images that were suggested as DDs or simply impressed me and I think they deserve more attention. Enjoy them, comment on them and remember to visit the photographers' galleries as well.
If you like what you see, this article so it can reach as many deviants as possible.
He gave me a rough idea, yes. The thing is that even when you were part of the team,(and I hope you join again) there were times that you were totally absent. We all have reasons to leave the Yard at one time or another, still we stick together because the fun time is more than the shitty one. Still, this journal is mine, the group has nothing to do with it
taking the first photo from the front would mean taking a bath, wouldn't it? Plus I think it would be a total different photo. This one seems to me about the combination of colors between girls and skyscrapers and vertical shapes between instruments and buildings...
I would agree, except the chinese violins aren't vertical, aren't juxtaposed against the city skyline, and the line of instruments isn't even parallel with the line of the city so it's kind of a stretch.
The photographer is already using a wide and the sitting line and the city line create a "V" shape from the left to the right, so why not shoot from the "open" left side? You would get some faces, the instruments would appear more vertical (as they are leaning to the left) and the frame would have the musicians dominating the right with the city on the left with a visual meeting point somewhere in the frame.
I know my original statement was strong, but there has been a rash of "back shots" and it's frustrating. I' afraid that if they are shown as being excellent examples of street photography, the photographers will never grow in to taking photos with faces in them. The biggest hurdle in street photography is having the confidence to lift your camera and take a photo with the people around you looking in your direction. Expressions are interesting, ponytails aren't.
