street photography ...

So something I have always admired is street photography, i mean who doesn't right? I can look at the work of Cartier Bresson for hours, drooling over the pages of his books, & i have incredible talented friends such as Rob Grimes & Sasha Holloway who can capture those instant moments, me well i don't think that fast. So i have been trying to step outside my little box, stop waiting for the people to get out of my shots (because seriously they are always in my way) & capture the moment as it's happening. But also I have been working on the "format" i shoot in. I naturally see everything in "landscape" & i feel this is something i need to work on so. 

So a couple of weeks back i ventured into Cambridge with just my Lensbaby composer pro & edge 80 lens for company, & a lot of rain! I have to say i love the results, i love the darker side of cambridge & that i actually captured people in my work! So enjoy some "pretties" here & then take a moment to work your way around the sisterhood stories circle starting with the blog of Karrie Drake. & you can of course check out more of my lensbaby work over in my etsy shop sweet dreams & honey.

  3. These are fab! I have a lot of trouble making abstraction of people in my images, I usually avoid them like plague, lol Except for my sons, of course :) Your work is inspiring and by always taking things one step further, you are going to go a long way.

  5. Beautiful work Laura! Rain evokes so many feelings and gives a much darker, athmospheric side to any place. I really enjoyed seeing these photos so thank you for sharing them with us.
