A new project for me
Streetographies was an idea born on my love of photography and the street portrait. When it comes to blogging I find myself in familiar territory here as writing seems to have slightly overtaken my photography in the last months. No More Dead Pixels, my regular blog is currently flourishing with over 20,000 views and still less than a year old. Bouncing off this success and introducing my passion for street style reportage photography I decided it was time to separate the two.
My name is Mark Winterbourne and as much as I use my Flickr account to display my images I find it difficult to follow-up the image with relevant text. Flickr recently introduced a new style site which allows images to come to the forefront; and why shouldn’t it. Afterall, it’s a photography site. I have opted to show street-style images and to stick to a theme. To accompany each photograph will be a text giving information about the image. This will include the ideas behind it, the details of the exposure and its creation along with post editing and finally an opinion on the end result. I do not intend to provide dozens of images from the same location or subject but portraits of individuals in monochrome with no repetition.
The whole series will be shot using either a Canon DSLR or a Canon G9 Compact. I hope you enjoy this journey through street portraiture and any feedback would be very welcome.
