Brick Lane in East London is one of my favourite places for street photography. Its endless stream of interesting characters and its ever-changing street art make it one of the most fascinating places, for both the photographer and for the viewer.

The changing nature of the place would make a spoken documentary pointless and soon outdated. Far better, I thought, to simply show you how it was on one afternoon in Brick Lane.

Pick up your camera and follow me…

Well made of it’s type but some questions to consider. Why would you freeze all that action with a still when you can have movement? Why would you change something to b & w when you can have colour? Why would you have a video without the real life sound?
Ignore me. I know why. I’m just an old guy who can’t fathom why people insist on photographing waterfalls with blurry water.

Thanks for your response. The quick answer to all of those questions is, "Because I'm a street photographer".

When we process street photography, there's always a choice to create a colour image or a mono image. I shot colour for over seven years, thinking that processing a photo to black and white sucked the life out of it. Then one day I met a photographer who showed me her black and white street portrait shots and I 'got it'. So I started doing black and white. I even started a blog about it.

I also understand your other questions. It's all about my own personal style.

What is art?

Gary expression is his expression of art.
What he see's

The Mona Lisa to me is the dullest image I had the misfortune to see, where as Potato Van G for me very much held me fixed to the ground as I stood staring at the image, hated the flowers.

They do look different if you see the real thing but Mona wow like milk gone off.

What I would say Gary, keep with it try some low angles like what is life like from the insects point of view.

I know what Mark means, he's old and seen it all before :)
So re inventing the wheel not easy.

I really like to have a friendly comp set a theme and make a 1 min video anyone up for this post here, or start a new page.

Its the only way to improve by pushing and being critiqued but others will you go in new directions.

Regards Rob

I like the gritty and grainy techniques that are often used in Street Photography. I made attempts at it years ago before I had a digital camera. Trying to get things right with traditional chemicals, and glass filters was very time consuming and expensive with all the trial and error. I think the most famous 'street photographer' was Weege. He was a man before his time with subject matter choice and technique.

I agree with Rob that art is the eye of the creator. At least up to a point (example Dechamp's "Readymade: Fountain").
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fountain_(Duchamp).

I do like the idea that Rob has mentioned on this thread as well as past threads of starting a "Friendly Competition" as a way of inspiring. It would be neat if we could do something like what is done on "DP Challenge."
https://www.dpchallenge.com/

I would recommend a friendly competition once a month rather than the weekly events that DP Challenge conducts.

Hello Dave,

Well about a year plus ago I asked for a comp, someone was thinking about this.
Nothing occurred.

Just putting it out their as an idea for a monthly competition to be set.
But we’re need some approvals from grand masters etc.
Rules guide lines and so on, who comes to mind, let me think somebody we all know and care about.

Someone with dedication, tac, diplomacy, I know how about Knobby Dave?

Regards Rob
