shooting out of the box * new jersey photographer * mikifoto
it's good to challenge ourselves creatively. to push our talent out of our comfort zone. i have been stuck in a bit of a photography rut so i decided to enroll in a nyc street photography workshop. it was specifically focused on grand central station. mostly architectural and indoor. which means little light or artificial light. a whole lot of elements that i don't normally shoot with or feel confident about. so, i had to slow everything down. i learned how to adjust my camera to situations where there is little and no natural light. i learned how to control my shutter speed to capture that creative blur of motion. almost like ghosts in the images. i learned how to look at the space around me to find interesting angles and details.
it was hard to feel like a beginner again. and many of my photos were garbage. but i felt revived and refreshed to try something new. and i liked street photography, especially the rawness of the imagery. here are some of my images:
