Today I was motivated to do some street photography, look at some photos and share your thoughts about them.
Below are some of the photo’s I took. You can click on these images to see them fullsize.
If you’re interested in street photography then check out Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Henri Cartier-Bresson (August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of modern photojournalism. He was an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the “street photography” or “real life reportage” style that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.
There’s a lot of ways to convert an image to black and white using many different software packages, the topic is probably worthy of an entire post and a screencast. In the end I think digiKam gave me the best results. digiKam has a black and White converter that can simulate analog film. So when I would read about the different film some of the masters would use I would try to choose a similar option in digikam.
Have you ever taken photos on the street?
