Daily Photos - December 2, 2011
Well, this is a MAJOR departure from my typical (and safe) flower and landscape shots! "Bell Ringer" is my first posting in a new style / genre of photography (street scenes / street photography) that I've been interested in trying my hand at for quite some time. I've flirted with it a few times before, getting some broader city shots that were more architectural in nature, but to be honest, I just haven't had guts to get out there and get close to people.
There is definitely something very exciting about the edginess and grit of the street!
I have been studying some work by a photographer I learned of just recently. His name is Thomas Leuthard and his website is 85mm Street Photography. Anyone interested in street photography should definitely check him out! I didn't realize how true the below quote was until I got out there and tried it! Holy smokes!!!
