One of my favorite photographers and teachers is the legendary Jay Maisel. I've learned many things from him just from studying his books and listening to him in conversation with Scott Kelby.
Jay Maisel talks a lot about light, colour and gesture. He also stresses the need to go out shooting completely “empty”. What he means by this is to approach Street Photography without any fixed agenda. This process of allowing the shot to come to you, is all about being committed, without being attached to the outcome.
In practicing this process, it occurred to me that the greatest camera is actually the human brain, the mind and vision – long before the shot is taken.
The following images reflect my passion for vivid colour, lines, shape and form. Very little post processing was done to achieve my desire – these images were shot in Raw Mode straight out of the camera and exported ready to share with you.
I hope you like them – I do
