I’m going to start a new series of images titled Winnipeg Light and Shadows. I’ll explore a different style that uses high contrast, highlights and shadows to create what I hope will be interesting street photographs.
No.1: All Quiet on the Corner
I like it! Great contrast and a moody feel to it
Thank you Sue!! :)
Oh man, I love this. I love your street photos, I love grit and the sleek wetness of the ground, the shadows, the emptiness, all of it. The street lamps. The black between the bricks . . . Mmmmm. So freaking happy you are doing this, Mike! Officially already obsessed.
Happy Sunday, beautiful friend. Enjoy, enjoy. ;)
A massive thanks for supporting my photography, Allison! :) I hope you’ll enjoy the series as much as am enjoying the challenge of finding scenes to photograph! It’s a beautiful but cold day here today – good to just stay indoors and keep warm, perhaps with a new article on Glory Begin ;)
Series’ do challenge us, don’t they? And we love us a challenge, an adventure, don’t we?! ;) Come over and hang out – it’s warm over on GB, promise. And there’s talk about Personal Legends and reaching through screens . . . wild times, man! Can’t wait to see more of your Street stuff. Have an awesome week!
Love this shot Mike!
Thank you very much, Diana! :)
Great concept and sample. Actually i find this one is less about the shadows but more about low light condition photography. when we talk about the shadows – shadow is more interesting then it create some geometrival form but not take almost whole image. But still great compo and try. Good luck
Cheers and thanks for your comment, Victor! :) I suppose the title was what would best fit the images I’ll be uploading – without sounding too technical.
I see ! I’ll happy to see more from this series !
Nice one Mike. Seems like you guys got a lot of cool old buildings there.
Thank you Rob! There are quite a few not far from where I live. It’s the old business area of Winnipeg and is a great spot for photography – although there aren’t always many people around!
Oh I see. Yes I often run into that issue in Calgary too. I’m used to being in Vancouver, Seattle or Toronto where there are always tons of people every where at any given time, I miss that.
I left this photo on my PC for a long time today; I like it a lot. I thought the composition is interesting. I tried to crop the photo (by using a piece of paper cover part of photo) so it doesn’t have left half and right half (almost), but I found out that I liked the original mush better. I guess when to break the rule is the hardest thing to learn. Thanks. Helen
Thank you Helen for your comment and examination of the image! :) I tend not to follow so many rules when I take photos – just try my best to come up with an interesting result.
So much fun hanging around on street corners, great shot Mike!
Living in Winnipeg – with street photography being a challenge – I find these areas can help! Thank goodness for street corners! :)
