Montreal Street Photography, VI Plus a Before/After
My street photography dropped off significantly the past three weeks because 1) I’m back on the bike and 2) I was busy losing sleep. Biking is great for the spirit but terrible for street photography. There are only so many pictures I can capture from my rear-view mirror and they all look like this:
I feel the loss of momentum but not inspiration so I seize every opportunity. For example, I took this shot with a shaky iPhone as I nursed Farrah Star:
I saw her with a cape and rainbow and the caption wrote itself. I like it but it’s a crappy picture. Here’s the original:
I forced it with software, cranking up the contrast and color in a super-hero style because I felt that strongly about the image and its mood.
I’d love to hear your feedback. How far do you go? What’s your fix when you just can’t let an image go?
Things to ponder this weekend. Have a good one and keep your head up!
