Traditional Street Photography

Recommended Posts

Kampuchea...early 90's...

I trust you shot these pics yourself, Sunshinethumbsup.gif.pagespeed.ce.dtxKiAJ9C7.gif alt=thumbsup.gif width=25 height=19>. Excellentwai.gif.pagespeed.ce.ptXUXgG4cA.gif alt=wai.gif width=20 height=20>

Yes I did DAL...Kodachrome 64..Nikon F4s, lens forgotten,

then scanned with a crappy scanner available a couple years

later. I have thousands of transparancies & negs of Kampooch

...many still waiting to be scanned when I get a new Cool Scan

(Nikon) or Hassleblad scanner...both very expensive. Or if I can

find somebody, not an agency, who has either one...I'll provide

the refreshments & grub in copius amounts! Can't be a flatbed

scanner though...unless it's a Kodak (bloody expensive), they're

not good enough. Thanks for the like...wai2.gif.pagespeed.ce.goigDuXn4X.gif alt=wai2.gif width=20 height=20>

I have a Nikon cool scan 4 if ur in phuket would be glad to loan it to u,

it takes me an average of 10-15 minute for my old Kodachrome 64 slides to get it right, Many of the colors are so washed out i merely made them B&W images and many had fungus that i could not clean up . sad.png

These are all slides shot in the mid 80's in Tibet and scanned

@Harrry....Pix were taken in an alley in Khlong Toey. I agree with you...it's hard to see

these kinda people today. He glued my trainers the next day...50Baht! I'll have a new

book out soon titled Southeast Asia: Off The Beaten Path...nothing but pix &

captions for each. Working on it at the moment in Lao...and doing what I like best

whilst working...mixing with the locals off some beaten path....great fun!

Cheers

Many times "street photography" entails grabbing a shot

of things not pretty. In fact down right disgusting & ugly.

@Dancealot...I seem to be missing something here DAL.

Assistance please. I see the moustache and her smirk

but what else? Or did they just miss the Baht Bus?

OK there is a similarity tween the "stash" on your avatar

and & the one on her shirt but.....?

DAL...

Regardless of what I'm not seeing compared to what you see;

the photo is OK...but that's about it...just OK. I say this because

it's washed out & I think I know why you left it this way...so one

can see more of the photo's details such as hair and the shop

in the backgrounds name etc. But this washes out what can be

a pretty striking image of these folks plight...let's say they missed

that baht bus & they're not happy about it because the driver

just passed em by ok?!

The top one is as you shot it while the bottom is what I did in about

10 seconds in ACDSee by just adjusting contrast and exposure.

It also enhances the trail of liquid that ends right under the the lady

second to the right who looks like she's.....hah!

And to me...just by a quick play with contrast & exposure makes

it a better monochrome photo. Just my opinion that's all...or

constructive criticism...whatever!

Keep shooting...

sunshine

extreme over adjusting

Dancealot; anytime u have to tell someone what to look for , your shot failed.

and agree with shunshine, its not only washed out ( which adjusting the contrast will not improve) but out of focus

sorry but keep shooting

Thank you very much, sunshine. I love your monochrome edit, I guess I lack the insight to see this.

I breathe a sigh of relief for getting some critique. I love the B&W shots and I see it's not just about switching from colour to B&W. I'll have to get into the picture more to enhance/highlight what I want to show.

Your lesson is appreciated.

I understand. wai.gif
