Hi everybody, I’m Diego 27 yo from Italy.
I’m interested in street and documentary photo, I worked with a photojournalistic agency for 1 year, but the journal’s situation in Italy is not good enough to give a place to you, young photographer. For that i decided to move in Australia Melbourne, in the end of November i will be there.
Street photography for my is like a vent for the eyes satisfies my curiosity.
Thank you everyone wants to reply this post.
The lady looks interesting but everything else does not say anything, the photo would have been better if the frame would have caught more of the lady, and it would have been even better if you had taken the photo while the lady noticed you taking the picture.Sometimes the reaction that people have when they see somebody taking their photos is what makes the photo interesting.
I’m new here as well, and very much an amateur photographer, so please take opinion lightly. :). the concept is good. your trying to capture a candid moment. Having the subject in the center accomplishes that goal but its so overt that attention is actually drawn away from her. like cake that is too sweet. I would pan out and actually position the subject slightly off center. The sign above her head which says “come in were open” seems a little too suggestive and doesn’t connect with the overall image. This and several other unintended objects in the photo make it feel a little messy. IE: window glare and lamp on the top. the big question is,,,how to effectively draw attention to a subject without forcing it? My favorite urban photos balance the subtle and explicit where my attention is drawn into a mystery. there is an immediate focus, yet Im forced into a mystery/fantasy of my own creation.
