I think this image really suits colour and gives it more mood and depth. I usually edit for mono with my street photography work.
For the last 11 years there has not been many days i have not taken a photograph. I am inspired by life, the mundane, the ordinary. I love to capture the stuff what people miss, walk past or take for granted, but that is just “things” I photograph.
I have ongoing projects such as my “night light” project where i shoot images using ambient street light and/or shop window light as the main light source. This works better on the dark night in winter where the streets are paved with the golden glow from the street lamps. I love to capture LIGHT, the way it enhances things and gives shape to them, how it cuts through mist giving “feel” and depth to the image.
What about people? I love to photograph people… candidly if at all possible. In a crowd I can disassociate and immerse myself, losing myself observing the nuances of eye contact, facial expressions and interactions between people.
So in conclusion my inspiration is light and life. How can one be bored with “nothing to photograph” in a world of visual beauty. I take a camera just about everywhere I go. It is always ready to capture a beautiful light source burning through a cloud or highlighting a flower, capturing interaction and mood between people and last but not least always ready to help me communicate my vision of the world around me.
Taken at Birmingham New Street Train Station. An isolated stranger connected in the online world, staring into his mobile phone. The composition using the rule of thirds helps to give depth to the image with the man’s eye gaze effectively leading out of the image, following the line of the shadows of himself and the pillar.
