Guest challenge: Street Photography/Portraits

priorhouse

 

Yvette:

I am honored that Paula has invited me to host the Thursday challenge this week.  Our theme this week is street photography – and while many people have different takes on approaching street shots – I invite you to share a photo that speaks to you!

Some folks try to photograph that special moment, some look for setting and include a rich backdrop, and then others might want a distant shot with little interaction – but the bottom line is that there is no single formula.

For my featured photo today, I highlighted the artsy expression of a college student.

This is Audrey, a German major at a local college – who also has great interest in art history.  Her tattoos, or body art, spoke to me and when I asked her if I could take her photo, she said, “Absolutely.”

 For this week’s challenge, I invite you to share a street photo that speaks to you.  It can be from a distance, it can include a rich setting, or it can be a posed shot like this featured one with Audrey.

Best Wishes,

H.A.T.

  5. I didn’t know you had a new blog, Yvette! You should have given me a poke! This is what you do best. I can never get someone to look relaxed and natural for the camera like this. I’d love to see you ‘at work’. 🙂 Hugs!
