Fine Tuning a Street Photograph: 5th July, 2018

I scanned five rolls of film today, and although many of the images were better than imagined there were two that annoyed me – they had potential, but I had missed out for whatever reason at the time I took them. I had a bit of time before an event I was shooting, so I headed over to the National Theatre to try and use the same location with a slightly different composition to bring out the scene I wanted to show.

The shot originally captured: Contax G1, 45mm, XP2

I will likely do the same with the other composition, which was shot from London Bridge, but I will hopefully write more on that once it is complete.

I prefer the version of the image I managed to create today to the one from my film scan, because it has better balance and better motion through the space.

  1. Not sure which one more to like.

    The first one, which shows an urban scenery with only a single (small) human being … is to me symbolizing the growing loneliness in our western urban societies. More (online) communication than ever, but lonesome in real life.

    The second one … as you mention, shows some movement as an additional element.


  2. That’s why I enjoy keeping a blog, it allows me to post different ones I may not like, but they all have something to them!

  3. I’m currently using an Epson V370, with my rolls cut into 6 frame segments, which I then scan one at a time using the built in transparency unit.
