Tips and tricks for handling light and shadowsStreet Photography WeekMore Like This
Many street photographers use the technique of photographing people against the light to get silhouette images. I love taking silhouette photos because they are featureless and provide enough food for thought. Silhouettes are not about specific people but about human beings in general. Their solid black color brings weight, drama and emotions. Silhouettes make images look more artsy and painting-like, leaving viewers to use their imagination to complete underexposed details. It is very easy to take silhouette photos if you know couple tricks. I want to share some with you.
The general rule is to find a light background, it can be sunset, doorway, open sky or sunny wall with shadowy area in front of it (see the image below). Your object will be black-lit, photographed against light.
Use manual exposure mode on your camera. Set aperture on F/8-11 to get in focus both subject and background and meter the brightest part of your p

Sensus CommunisSo, last summer my good friend and budding filmmaker Magnus Thors decided to make a short 'documentary' about me and my street photography in Tokyo. We had been putting this project off for months and months and finally, Magnus was leaving Japan, so we scrambled and put together a 1 day shoot. From this footage Magnus cut together a 11 minute video (which definitely needs to be cut down) and has submitted it to a Kickstarter-like contest. If you want to see the video and vote for his film, you can do so on the official page! Magnus is hoping to shoot more footage and produce a better cut. We might also like to include other Tokyo-based photographers!More Like This

FarewellThis journal is to remind (or inform ) you that my term as Street Photography Community Volunteer is over and that as for tomorrow I'll go back to my previous state of simple dA member.More Like This
This means that from now on you have to send your street photography DD suggestions to one of the admins that feature in all the categories http://help.deviantart.com/18/ .
Oh, this also means that from tomorrow if you piss me off I will send you to fuck off with no restraint for community core values of sort and I can finally block whoever insults me. I can't wait for it, actually .
Being a CV used up a lot of my time, and I hope to use the new free time to take photos, hang around, and for some other very much needed off-line activities
I've got ideas and plans.
And now the thank-you roundup. I am sorry to say that my opinion that street photographers mostly are arrogant self absorbed bitches has been confirmed during this year, but... thank goodness there are exceptions
