This past weekend, I made a personal resolution to do some real street photography. By this, I mean actually going out and decisively capturing any scene that I thought was interesting, without embarrassment or hesitation. Most of my previous work (and I have to admit, I have done rather little in this genre) was the result of trying to be inconspicuous, and I often missed good photographs because I didn't have the confidence to make them happen. Some of the results are shown below, all from a single roll of film shot on Saturday and Sunday late afternoon. There are, of course, many faults with the images... for one, most of them are shot at an angle, which I find jarring especially when viewed as a series. (The reason for this probably lies with composing in my mind's eye, rather than through the viewfinder). I am, however, very happy with this roll - in fact, more so than I have been with any other roll - largely because some of these faults are ones I can easily improve next time round, simply by being conscious of the issues. So... I want to encourage any budding street photographers out there to try and make this leap. If you go out determined and confident, you will not find yourself embarrassed. You will find the process much more enjoyable, and once you get a flow, everything pieces together. It would also be interesting to hear any comments or thoughts about this, since there are lots of highly talented individuals on this forum. So without further ado, here are the photos... (location - Cochabamba, Bolivia; shot on Neopan 400 and semi-stand developed in Rodinal).
