The Lucky 13 (street tips)13 Street Photography TipsThe Lucky 13 (street tips)3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Tony Ray-Jones was an English street photographer. In the early 60′s he traveled to the U.S for studying for a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design at Yale. He moved to NY after graduating and got a job as an art director for CBS records but he was determined to become a photographer. In New York he became good friends with Joel Meyerowitz and became part of the NY street photographers scene led by Garry Winogrand.
Jones kept notebooks, a journal if you'd like in which he wrote down his thoughts, lists and plans about photography. In one of those lists, titled "Approach" he listed some tips for better street photographs. These tip are still valid today and can be used as a basic guidelines to better street photography.
1. Be more aggressive- just to be clear, this does not mean at any way that you should jump into situation that could become violent! In a way, this simple

COMBINATION OF HUMANs+SURROUNDINGS
Photographing together human presence and surroundings, combining them in something interesting and unusual, we obtain the classic structure of a street photography.
But mind you, it is not enough taking a photo with people and surroundings to have a good street photo! Remember that we have to strike, surprise, trigger an emotional response.
And that we can do CONNECTING people and surroundings.

For You.. Fur Dich..I am not this perfect angel nor am I of Demons born,For You.. Fur Dich..2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Half of both i stand to oath, truth and loyalty is sworn.
I cannot say I'll guide you through this,
I cannot say we shall not fall.
All I am is just a Man, I pray that you will understand.
But with all that flows within my veins and with all within myself i give
To fight now and forever more for a love in which we both can live..
All seems strange yet all is true...Take my hand and say I do too..
This beautiful poem was not written by me, but by the one who holds my heart. Beautiful, marvellous, wonderful Knight in shining armour, who came knocking at my door one fine morning (literally!) when I least expected it (needless to say, I looked terrible the first time he met me and he STILL liked me. If that isn't love, I don't know what is!)
K, you are an angel. A perfect angel and a perfect man in my eyes.
This poem is his way of saying hi. So say hi back everyone!!

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIAL - PART ONE
THE HUMAN SUBJECT
(article from photo4u.it - il portale italiano della fotografia translated and adapted to dA by myraincheck)
Let's close our eyes and imagine going out in the streets and looking for unusual things. What do we expect to find? People, first of all.
That's good, the HUMAN PRESENCE is a fundamental element of street photography.
If we want to use only this ingredient, we'll be able to realize a true street photo only if the person we capture will have something unusual or interesting or is doing something unusual or interesting. Otherwise we'll have a good portrait, an enviromental portrait, a wide portrait whatever, but not a street photo.

It was a great week for deviantArt and your response was overwhelming.
Street community in dAland might be relatively small in numbers
but I dare say it is the MOST DEDICATED community of all!
Project Educate's street journals reached so far around 10.000 pageviews
and I expect this number to rise twice as much.
Thank you all for your great support,
your comments and your encouraging attitude.

Of Broken Things and a Heartless ManThis is going to be long and stupidly detailed but I think I need to get this out because I have a feeling that I may not be the only girl with a story like this.Of Broken Things and a Heartless Man2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A couple of years ago I met a boy called S. He was kind, quiet and made me coffee every morning at an office we both despised for what it represented. I fell head over heels for his quiet charm, his music, his soothing voice: who he was. Except I didn't really know who he really was. Slowly, over the course of the relationship, he began to point out things he didn't like about me. He didn't like the way I overused certain phrases, the way I spoke, the way I sang, and he didn't want to listen to me talk about my past because it burdened him, and he didn't like that...basically all the little things that made me, ME would have to change. This is where I made the most critical mistake.
I changed for him.
I changed who I was to please S. And do you know what? The more I changed to suit his needs, the more demands he put on
The Violets are deadRoses are red,The Violets are dead2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet
And perhaps so are you.
But the roses have wilted,
The violets are dead,
The sugar bowl's empty
And your wrists are stained red.
The sun isn't shining,
The sky isn't clear,
There's no silver lining cause you're no longer here.
Rain keeps on pouring,
There's no end in sight,
You're laying there frozen
So far from the light.
Your beauty's unreal,
You smile the sun,
But time can't be turned nor your actions undone.
The words that you wrote that only I read,
"I love you so much please don't cry when I'm dead".
A bond that we formed,
A love that ran deep,
A pain that we shared,
A friend I could keep.
I wanted to hold you,
Wipe the tears from your eyes,
Been there the moment you said your goodbyes.
I want to forget but most times I don't,
I want to let go,
But I know that I won't.
Tears on my face,
Memories burned in my head,
The roses have wilted,
The violets are dead.
Street Photography: The Capture vs. The PoseStreet PhotographyStreet Photography: The Capture vs. The Pose3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

SPAM - Short Pointless Annoying MessagesSPAM - Short Pointless Annoying Messages3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello my watchers/non-watchers/kind visitors, and of course, hello spammers!
I don't know from where to begin because there's a lot to say about this kind of subject called spam.
I've seen that some of people on deviantart.com don't really know what the word spam means, so I will try to be smart with the help of my little friend wikipedia, and use a chance while it's not blocked by SOPA, PIPA and all the other annoying short names. So, here it is (annoying but useful definition):
"Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media: instant messaging spam, Usenet newsgroup spam, Web search engine spam, spam in blogs, wiki spam, online classified ads spam, mobile phone messaging

A motivational letter...When I started photography, I was just a shy person with a DSLR trying to take good photos. I had so many ideas but didn't know where to start and I thought that most of my ideas were hard to implement if not impossible. But as time passed and my passion grew, I would get so excited about being out there shooting, creating crazy set ups, that I would DARE to do more and push my limit further. So I took a good dose of determination and decided that whatever idea I have, I will do my best to implement it!! I would like to share a list of advice (with a lot of behind the scene videos) that I hope will motivate you to push yourself to the limit.A motivational letter...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
