In a few weeks I’ll be back again. Last time it was for Thanksgiving and the November wind was less forgiving.
This time it’ll be summer and we’ll be approximately 12 Swedish Street photographers, staying for a long weekend. Me, I’ll first visit my family in Indy (Indianapolis). Seeing them again is a must, but after that I’ll indulge in all of the more or less dramatic Chicago scenes. See you there?
Recently got a question for my best tips in Street photography. Three came to me instantly, to me the most important ones: 1. Get close, 2. Eyes and 3. Take lot of photos.
Eyes are to me the most important element in street photography. Eyes looking at you or projecting and leading to something else, maybe the main motif? When I walk the street it’s eyes I look for most of the time. Here a few examples of what I mean.
On the street, it doesn’t have to be perfect. The emotions count, no matter how technically good you are. So, sometimes I like it to be not only rough and somewhat “unfinished”, but also out of focus. It works as it is.
I was born 15 years after the end of WWII. I was taught to never forget. I just want all of you young to understand have horrified our parents were, when they realized the extend of the atrocities of the nazis. And that it can happen again.
I was in Berlin twice in 2014. The place that got to me the most was probably Denkmal für die ertmordeten Juden. Here a couple of pics. Today, to remember the holocaust.
