This is a two-week assignment. The goal is to create a street photograph that stands outside this assignment. Hopefully, at the end of this assignment, we will all print our images and hang them on the wall!
Street Photography (defined):
"Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches, malls, political conventions, and other settings[...]
Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. This genre of photography is present in contemporary times and is usually done as black and white photographs. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment. On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with."
WIT - A trip into Edinburgh. A borrowed lens ( thanks Kirsty & Ali for the loan of the lens and babysitting! )
The light levels were pretty low so this isnt as sharp as I would have liked.
