Street Portraits

image

One of the greatest things about living in the city, is the ability to do candid Street Portraits.
I have had one person today try to tell me what I was doing was Illegal, which is a false statement, as under UK law if you are on public land you can take a picture of anyone, including under 18’s. (BTW, the wonderful Porscha-Morgan above is over 18)
We Brits also have the right to photograph & document Police Constables going about their duties where as fellow practitioners in the US can face arrest for daring to photograph the police.

While trying to take a picture of a Ducks Bum in Canon Hill Park (Birmingham), two Coots decided to photo-bomb me by running across the water in front of the camera!
I’m actually grateful that I was using a slow shutter speed so the speed and blur of the coot is fantastic.

Editing & Photoshop

I admit it, every photography I’ve posted on this site has been adjusted though Photoshop.
In the opinion of most photographers this isn’t a bad thing, as with traditional photography the skill was not just in setting the camera controls, but in the developing the image in the darkroom; and this is no less important with digital cameras in the modern era, to bring out the best in any image you take.
