    Re: Street Photography by Nick Turpin

    I watched the Turpin video and so wish that I hadn’t wasted my time. Where was the mood of the street? There we had a plain hoarding, the Tower and a guy recumbent looking at his smart phone. I have to say that I have never understood the attention given to Turpin’s work and this video just entrenched my opinion. Why not instead look at the work of Helen Levett where you will find energy and wonder as portrayed by a consummate street photographer?

    There is much more that I could add but having wasted 20 or so minutes of my life on that pap, I’m not inclined to spend any more time decrying that video, simply awful.

      I watched it and quite enjoyed it, even though street isn't my thing.

      Next day I was wandering round town taking my normal fare of buildings and architectural details, and look what I did by mistake! :-) (I'm not planning to give up the day job ...)

        Better than anything Turpin was likely to get from his riverside location Rob.

        Maybe you’ll catch the bug by taking a peek here:

        I’ve met Steve a couple of times and recently he came to our camera club. He is a master Street and documentary photographer and the quality of his prints is superb. Enjoy!

        Also one for Steve Ricoh

            Just did a quick iPad crop by zooming in and I think it looks better without the railings...

                Why do you say 'unbecoming'? The Fuji is close to being pure with almost direct control of the triangular exposure variables. If I was starting today, with the knowledge I have acquired, I'd choose Fuji without a doubt.

                  Maybe the wrong word.. really meant inconspicuous

                    Black is the least conspicuous of course, but it's irritating having brand names emblazoned on the front of cameras, Olympus, FujiFilm, LUMIX, etc. Apart from using electricians' tape the alternative is to choose a camera without a logo, eg the Leica MP or MA.

                        I agree, but they are easily cropped. Nice one!

                          I found it useful to see how he operates, but I thought his shoot at the Bank of England was better than Tower Bridge.

                              Thanks. I'm still something of a novice and getting my eye in. And for street photos (if that's what this is) a complete novice. Also this is completely free from post processing except automatic RAW conversion (DXO default) and slight cropping. (I'm guessing it would be inappropriate to the genre to declutter distracting items out of the background, such as the air conditioning unit and two lights above and beyond the revolving door ...)

                              P.S. I've reposted this on the "suggested improvements" board so as to avoid derailing this thread further.
