After agonizing over my photos for hours, I decided to go with the “pairing” theme, and picked these six photos to present as my term project for the Street Photography class. All the pictures contain people or objects in “pairs”. I had the photos giclee printed at a professional lab with the wide borders, and presented them to my class on Saturday.
My teacher liked the top 4 pictures here. He felt that the bottom 2 didn’t quite make the feel of the series. I have to agree with him. I was scrambling to get the minimum requirement of 6 pictures together, so I may have thrown in some that I’m not totally in love with.
Anyway, he really like the top 4 pictures, and I’m pretty sure I passed the course. It has been a really interesting experience for me to shoot on the street, breaking a lot of the rules I learned in a studio setting. I am not likely to ever become a professional street photographer, but I think learning about street photography has made me a more well-rounded photographer.
