After my drone in the air…return to the earth: under the sky of East Berlin.

In my last posts I paid attention to my drone…I want to “come down” the earth..and to Street-photography: around the city of East-Berlin. I tried to look for the ancient atmospheres, old colors of the city before the Fall of the Berlin Wall. I used my Fujifilm X100…a very good camera for Street Photography. Lightroom for editing.

A good exercise: play with differences.

As I said in another post, a good exercise in Street Photography is to look for similarity , But the opposite is also true: looking for differences:

Small sizes…and…large sizes..

Small size large size

 

Young and old

I’m different!

He’d like to be like Batman….but…ehm..

Graceful Girl

I have always my camera with me…so, when I saw this pretty girl, I asked her to pose for me. She was reading a book and I liked the light on her face ( the light was reflected by the white pages of the book ).

I hope to be in time to partecipate to the weekly photo challenge Graceful 🙂 🙂

Do you like a threesome?

A good exercise for street photograpy is to take an argument, also a little or, at the first sight, meaningless topic and develop it. In this case I chose the number 3…that is to say…a threesome 🙂

I saw three windows and I waited for three persons

Some tips for successful Street Photography

Use wide-angle lens: like 28mm or 35mm: in order to get as much as possible in the frame ( and you’ll be more discrete and “hidden” )

Camera Settings: the camera must be ready in any moment to take a shot quickly

  • Set it to “Aperture Priority” or “Program” ( both in Automatic ISO )

Get close to your subject: so who sees the image feels as if he is a part of the scene: ( don’t fear to get close to people )

Always carry your camera with you ( in your hand! ): you cannot miss any moment!

Focus on details: try to simplify a photos and search for little particulars and peculiars

Legs of a woman

 

Move your feet: try to have more shots of the same scene and from differents point of view

 

Be patient! Sometime we have to wait for a long time to take a good photo ( for the photo below I waited for a lot of time until a person moved to the right place )

Sometime we can interact with our subjects ( don’t always take a photo from your belly. For the photo below I asked the girl to pose for me )

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Try to see the word with the eyes of a child ( in the pictures below I saw an “octopus” with shoes in the first one and a Saint with his halo in the second one )

 

Are you always here? Take your camera and go!!
