STREET_PHOTOGRAPHY_IN_COLOUR

 

parrot2

Aperture: f/5.6

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

What makes this photo interesting are the complementary colours portrayed in here (green and red).

 

mosque2.jpg

Aperture: f/25

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

This picture feels rather soothing because of the gloomy sky and the monochromatic colours of the mosque. You can also clearly see the intricate details of the architecture.

 

birds.jpg

Aperture: f/9

Shutter speed: 1/100

ISO: 100

At first glance, it looked as if it is a black and white photo but it actually is not. Due to the bright and clear sky, it creates a great contrast between the foreground and the background. I like that you can see the motion caused by the bird flying in the background whereas the birds on the lights are completely still.

 

bicycle

Aperture: f/9

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

The composition of the bicycle and the vibrant colours intrigue me, as well as the details of the wall.

 

aircon

Aperture: f/10

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

I love the monochromatic colours and how retro it looks like.

 

cool dude.jpg

Aperture: f/10

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

Colour-wise, it’s pleasing to my eyes. And there’s something warm about his smile (that sounded cheesy but I’m serious).

 

retro.jpg

Aperture: f/10

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

Without possessing a wide angle lens, I attempted to capture shots using Wes Anderson’s style of filming in the Grand Budapest hotel; symmetrical compositions.

 

factory.jpg

Aperture: f/10

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

I tried taking a shot and manipulating the composition of a close-up whilst using some parts of an abandoned building.

 

old house.jpg

Aperture: f/13

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

Despite the house decaying, nature manages to seek through the cracks of the walls.

 

tomatoes.jpg

Aperture: f/7.1

Shutter speed: 1/125

ISO: 200

I took this right after the owner of the grocery store placed these succulent and recently-cleaned tomatoes into a basket.

 


 

“This assignment was rather relaxing. I got to explore areas of Little India myself and I met genuinely nice people along the way. This was also our first photography assignment in colour and the technicality is not drastically different from B&W but it did frustrate me when the colours didn’t come off the way I desired it to.”
