Yesterday I followed a street photographers course from " FOAM " The famous photographic museum in amsterdam. Rule one, posing people like the one above is not permitted. ( It was the second shot I made that day).
For sure not a method I would do.
Still some rules where given as
The photo must contain people
Preferable not on their back
They may not posing for you
No bikes unless part of the total image as street content
No kids only
unless the photo contains a decision made by someone on that moment.
Of course interpretable in a lot of ways
No use of a tele lens
And that was it.
The next hour we went on the street to make photographs.
Here some results of my work.
These are 5 of the 135 pictures I made that hour. My fellow students (25 total) found the bench shot the best. What do you think. That evening I had my eyes closed at 10 PM.
