I’m mostly doing street photography, and mostly to document life and telling stories from the street. But I also do like to be a little creative in a more “artsy” why now and then. I haven’t found out exactly how or with what, but I think that I’m onto something, something I will call “glowing light and shadow”.
I was editing some of my photos, and tried to play with toning, adding a little color to the otherwise black and white shots I usually edit. I liked the results, but didn’t feel that it fit very well to the general style I use for my street photos. Turning the clarity down, gave a special glow to the photos, and when I played around with the contrast, highlights, shadow, and color filters, I got some really interesting results, which creates a different form of drama.
You can see the results below:
The Girl under the Tree.
Crossing the Bridge
A flower glowing in the dark
A lonely tree in the desert
A view over the desert
The Church and the Sky
The Cross embraced by God’s light
Religion behind bars
I’m definitely going to do more of these kind of shots. It doesn’t work well with general street photography, for that I will keep on mostly in black and white, but for architectural and landscape photography it seems to work well.
