Something I seldom do, or let me rather say, have the time to do, is post things that REALLY stand out to me. I’ve sat myself down & gave a stern talking. Yes, once again I had allowed myself to get so distracted with the urgent, it overshadowed the important.
So that said, I’m going to try make a point of just quickly posting things on the blog that either really caught my eye and do a blog post on jobs as often as possible. I wouldn’t want you thinking I had fallen off the planet & wasn’t shooting on a super regular basis. :)
Let’s begin with this one that literally blew me away. The compositions especially mixed with the deep light/shadow play is just sublime. It’s not very often you come across work that is this strong -especially from a teenager. It does go to show that it really is all about the eye behind the camera. Fan Ho, the photographer, arrived in Shanghai in 1949. He was fascinated with the street life of Shanghai, which set him apart, as the norm was studio photography.
