Street Photography Lesson: Doesn't it look awesome how Masashi makes the viewer wander from umbrella to umbrella? Loads of interesting details in the background such as the people and the buildings. The split-toning in post-processing really makes this shot!
To Masashi: Your street photos always feel like a vacation in Tokyo to me. Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: Do you see how Franz makes the skateboarder pop out of the frame? The composition put all the focus on the subject without any distracting details.
To Franz: As a former skateboarder, you make me want to skate again! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: Street photography doesn't necessarily need to show faces. This is a perfect example of a beautiful scenery with golden backlight. Besides, the street serves as a line that goes from the car to the background.
To Stijn: Cuba was al sinds jaren op mijn lijst, maar nu echt hè! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: This street photo benefits from the different layers. The shattered glass in the foreground, the person in the middle and the car and signs in the background.
To Alex: Macht mich wirklich glücklich, deine tolle Entwicklung zu sehen. Wahnsinn! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: The composition is incredible. Take a look at how the subjects are taking you from the bottom left to the right and then back to the left. The steam adds another layer of contrasts.
To Nader: So happy that I discovered your work. You are an amazing street photographer! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: Minimalist street photography at its best! There is a silhouette with a strong natural contrast, a dark bottom half and a brighter top half. So simple, but so great!
To Aeforia: I love your mix of digital art and fine art photography. You are sooo creative! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: The whole frame revolves around the central subject. It's right in the center and conveys a sense of harmony. By hiding the rider's face through the back light, the photo raises more questions than it answers.
To Thomas: Man, I love that whole set. So well captured and processed! Vijce
Street Photography Lesson: The subject really stands out because of her red robe. It's a perfect contrast with the blue water behind her. Besides, the approaching boat really adds yet another interesting subject to the frame.
To Ashraful: You know how much I love your powerful street photos...you rock! Vijce
