A few more sample shots of the aerosol paint cans.
I figured I’d fix the exposure on the computer………. (preferably when the natural morning light shines across my computer screen).
Too hard for me to see on the LCD screen in the dark alley. I tried a few shots on the AV (aperture priority) setting, but they were far too light and lost that ‘dark gloomy alley‘ atmosphere which I really wanted.
(yes, I know how to use the histogram, but I actually prefer my images to be slightly under-exposed so I’m often tweaking the contrast in PP. Most of these images are straight out of the camera).
PART 3 tomorrow morning………..hopefully………..with a good result.
As soon as I saw two aerosol paint cans lying in a puddle in the centre of the alley, I knew what I was going to photograph this afternoon. Results to follow.
(I’m sure the tourists and other photographers wondered what I was photographing while kneeling on the wet asphalt staring so intently at the ground. One Asian tourist came up to ask me and I showed her on the LCD screen. Then her partner took a photo of the two of us. Not sure what story would accompany that shot when the two tourists shared their images with family and friends when they arrived home).
I’m way behind in reviewing photos I’ve made recently, but decided these were worthy of my Black & White Blog (as opposed to my other blog Living With Nature).
After all, they ARE Black & White and that’s what this blog is all about (not necessarily Street Photography). The fact that I started with street photography doesn’t mean every post will be along those lines.
