Progressive Saturday Night (v.79) by Batsceba
Loneliness belongs to the PhotographersI don't think I'm essentially a street photographer. I guess Photography is just the way for me to express how I see things. It has something to do with a philosophical approach to reality. I have always had this way of observing reality, dwelling on details, on scenes that tell me something.
Early on in my life, I felt inspired by what was around me. Eventually, I got into street photography. It was a slow process. And this happened in a city that was not my hometown, where my view got released

“But the harshness of his steely glare was compensated by the softness of his cotton gloves,
so that, as he approached Swann, he seemed to be exhibiting
at once an utter contempt for his person and the most tender regard for his hat.”

The moment we pulled up in front of her apartment she had the door open.
She turned to me with the long, elegant, mournful face of her Puritan ancestors and held out her hand.
'It's been fun,' she said.'Yes,' I said, taking her hand. She was wearing gloves."

Street photography and telephoto lens Community Week
There is no “perfect” focal length for Street Photography
Many photographers are not a fan of using telephoto lenses in street photography. Generally they find telephoto lenses too impersonal, without the sense of intimacy that lenses with  focal lengths of 28mm-55mm (35mm and 50mm in particular) produce. The believe that these shorter focal lengths force you to get closer to your subject (sharing their human condition and feeling their environment).
However, if you analyze  the works of Leiter, whose street photography is shot with a relatively long lens you have to change your mind: he compresses his scenes creating a peculiar geometric vision
Here's what Leiter responds to Dean Brierly
D.B.: Many of your images have a compressed spatial perspective.

“I always think about what it means to wear eyeglasses. When you get used to glasses you don't know how far you could really see. I think about all the people before eyeglasses were invented. It must have been weird because everyone was seeing in different ways according to how bad their eyes were. Now, eyeglasses standardize everyone's vision to 20-20. That's an example of everyone becoming more alike. Everyone could be seeing at different levels if it weren't for glasses.”

'Cause I'm not a real street photographer: yesterday, as I was waiting for someone, with my nikon hanging around my neck, I started to take a look around. And that's how I got it. I'm a photographer of the wait. I don't look for shots. I find them in the pauses. That's why I love to take pictures in the subway, in bars: because I wait for the right shot, I don't look for it. All in all, it perfectly fits with my being. I'm motionless, it's life that changes my colour, my age. -Batsceba Hardy

perché non sono una vera fotografa di strada: ieri, aspettando una persona, con la mia nikon al collo, ho cominciato a guardarmi attorno. ed è così che ho capito. io sono una fotografa dell'attesa. non cerco gli scatti. li trovo nelle pause. per questo amo fotografare nella metropolitana, nei bar: perché aspetto lo scatto, non lo cerco. ma in fondo combacia perfettamente con il mio essere. io sono immobile, è la vita che mi trasforma, colora, invecchia. - Batsceba Hardy

soundtrack: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iucRHs…

I've stopped thinking. and i'm dumb waiting for the Great Mystery hug. I've been looking for it wandering about the streets in a city that doesn't belong to me, I've been looking for it letting water drop on me to shut my pain up. yet i've just met the other's rage and i've been annihilated. like i was annihilated as a child before someone raising their voice, a slap in the face i didn't understand. i'm not cut out for life. i don't have nails. i always expect understanding, explanations, love. but i can't change. and i'll keep on roaming with my disability to live, listening to the distant echo of the Great Mystery which will ease my pain. i don't know how to live but i know how to love. and i'll keep on walking trying not to to tread on the ant crossing my path.

Color or black and white

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 14, 2017, 6:36 AM

I ignite the question: "Which is better for Street Photography, Color or B&W?"


When we think about street photography *, we usually think about classic black and white photos by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau and others. Yes, street photography was born in black and white, on film developed in the darkroom. Indeed if we search for “street photography” using Google Image Search, we will find mostly black and white images. I guess there is a prejudice against color street photography. Some kind of a nostalgic feeling. I think street photographers are biased and choose too quickly black and white. But there are many great street photographers who have enjoyed color, nonetheless, such as Ernst Haas, Helen Levitt, Saul Leiter, William Eggleston, Joel Sternfeld, Fred Herzog, Martin Parr, Joel Meyerowitz, Matt Stuart...



Robert Doisneau


Ernst Hass N.Y.


I believe that these two quotations can satisfy lovers of both categories:

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!” Ted Grant


“One very important difference between color and monochromatic photography is this: in black and white you suggest; in color you state. Much can be implied by suggestion, but statement demands certainty… absolute certainty.” – Paul Outerbridge



Anyway, color street is more difficult than b/w street (you have to control more) and I think that is why we see more b/w street than color.

1)- b/w is essential: cutting out the informations of colors

2)- b/w enhances frames based on lines, geometry, combination of shapes and masses, visual symbolism.

3)- b/w puts more emphasis on the subject

4)- b/w can give a timeless feeling to the images, cutting them out from a specific time

5)- b/w can add gravity and drama to an image.

But:

Colors catch the attention.

1)- Colors can lead the eye through a frame

2)- Colors can highlight elements in a frame

3)- Colors can isolate them.

4)- Colors convey atmosphere and emotion.

5)- Colors can add complexity and layers to an image.


Sometimes a photo without its colors loses its visual meaning and impact. Leiter, for example, uses color as a painter, look for the detail, playing with shadows, discovers what is not seen.

In my opinion, color photos run the risk of making the reality more plastic, today. But it depends on how you're using the colors, of course, we are all too affected by the bombardment of advertising. And anyway there is a difference between analog and digital color ... shots of Saul Leiter and Helen Levitt are completely different from the most recent photographs, and not only because of the subjects (people from another Time).

I believe that when you are shooting you already know whether the image will be in color or black and white. I make my choice almost always right when shooting. I love the color, but often it's not significant and I see only in black and white, while sometimes the color gets crucial. It depends on what you are shooting and what you want to tell.




Black and white emphasizes the girl's face but flattens the reflections.

In full colour it's an overall view, where you read more than one level.

And that's what I wanted to take, otherwise, I would have focused on the girl.






And you? What do you think about black and white vs color for street photography?

When do you believe it is better to use either? Do you think that black and white is inherently better than color?




°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

cover by Saul Leiter


* “A new era in color photography began with the introduction of Kodachrome film, available for 16 mm home movies in 1935 and 35 mm slides in 1936. It captured the red, green and blue color components in three layers of emulsion. A complex processing operation produced complementary cyan, magenta and yellow dye images in those layers, resulting in a subtractive color image. Maxwell's method of taking three separate filtered black-and-white photographs continued to serve special purposes into the 1950s and beyond, and Polachrome, an "instant" slide film that used the Autochrome's additive principle, was available until 2003, but the few color print and slide films still being made in 2015 all use the multilayer emulsion approach pioneered by Kodachrome.” Wikipedia
