I am joining Lens and Pens by Sally, who hosts each Monday the Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge.
4th Monday Challenger’s Choice (Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).
My choice of theme for this week’s challenge is: Street Photography
Street life fascinates me because it feels like reading flashy excerpts of people’s lives. I watch them and imagine what they do and what they may be thinking of. I live in Amsterdam, a multicultural city with more than 822,272 inhabitants and over 180 nationalities. It is a melting pot.
If I have an opportunity, I make a street photo every single day. Today I used my iphone5 to make photos of people going to or from the metro, as well as from those, like me, who were waiting for the tram. By the way, it is inside the tram that I make most of my street portraits.
You have two galleries here. I used exactly the same post processing steps for all photos. Increased clarity and vibrance and made it black and white with noir filter to make a dramatic effect. Tell me what you think. Would rather have it less dramatic?
