Photo Critique: Ryan

I took a couple photo classes at university back in the days of film and enjoyed working in the darkroom. Then a few years ago I realized I was taking lots of pics on my (pretty low-end) phone and really liking it. I learned Photoshop while playing around with the phone pics, and finally got a DSLR about a year ago.

Eric’s blog was one of the first I found after getting my camera, and it really inspired me to do street photography and study the work of others. I’ve been walking the streets of my small Midwestern city with my camera ever since, and just want keep improving.

I really like this I have to say. It has a painterly quality to it.

Reminds of paintings I would see in my grandparents house. Not the subject matter but the look.

Colour grading and double exposure is great. Too bad about the curtain string but there’s nothing you can do about that. –Andrew

Thanks for the feedback. Actually not a double exposure—it’s a window reflection of the street outside. A lucky accident!

Ryan, really love this shot and the painting quality. Oddly, I don’t mind the curtain string, it adds a quirky element that I like 🙂

The reflection–and not double exposure–makes your photo doubly interesting. –Andrew

Ryan,  very elegant image. Looks like a Vermeer painting. Keep painting with light.
