I love the cold, moody look of our winters. [t]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1666/24427411595_24d2c91202_o.jpg[/t] [t]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1594/24427411325_ba3d7bbd95_o.jpg[/t] The second picture is a bit of a shame because I love the lighting and framing, but I had AF on to save my hands from the cold and it never quite focused on anything :C The out of focus branches in the edges/foreground look nice to me at least.
honestly it was probably those or the horizon
Ooh! New thread! You should see more from me soon. I'm taking yet another photojournalism class, and this one's apparently harder. I'm excited.

Seems descriptive of the personality of both the subject and photographer
I dunno maybe I'm just overthinking it
Probably. I'm not a huge fan of it myself, but I can at least appreciate what the photographer was going for. It's a bit too "family snapshot" for me, though.

It reminds me of Martin Parr and Bruce Gilden in the fact that he doesn't follow conventions. It's an exploration into vulgarity and obscenity and it conveys something about the subjects persona.

I'm just not sure how I feel about the whole being different for the sake of being different thing. I guess it depends on your thought process when capturing the images Got asked to shoot the poster for an upcoming dystopian post apocalyptic play. They said they wanted something distressed featuring a close up of a characters face looking all dirty like lara croft or something, ended up with this: [url=https://flic.kr/p/D6X1RW][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1511/24352516952_6e2ab5b63b_c.jpg[/img][/url] I think it looks a bit lacking at the moment but don't really want to "distress" it more as it's gonna have the titles and names of the cast etc all over it like a movie poster so I think it will look decent then

I like them. Clearly you're focusing more on geometry than subject matter, and that's a strategy that really works when you're doing architecture stuff.

I find it really hard to shoot horizontally since I feel to get this kind of aesthetic I prefer to shoot vertically. Thats why 95% of my photos are portrait mode haha. I can imagine myself taking the same shots but my way and it'd have a pretty similar feel but at the same time really different. Also, its so weird what kind of sceneries you find throughout the world. Ive never seen neighbourhoods like that last one where I live
Forgot I shot this a while back. [t]http://puu.sh/mBqvF/77e64621c0.jpg[/t] Bonus seal: [t]http://puu.sh/mBqAC/3e470b2c03.jpg[/t]
