Breaking the rules of 'good photography' can produce great results. Your most technically gifted picture will not necessarily be your best. A photograph that truly tells the story of the moment it was taken can often be a snapshot, the result of a chance decision – even an accident! When looking for your best photo, about don't be bound by the rules of the textbook.

One of our passions in photography is Street Photography. This type of photography is not really for the shy ones out there. We love capturing the emotions, the hustle & bustle, the going ons of daily life on the street, the different characters one tends to find and see.

This image was intentional shot almost shooting directly into the sun (metering for the woman with the phone). Shot with a 50mm len's, discretion is hard to come by when shooting.  We have a thing for street photography depicting people on their phone and this is now one for the collection. What we love are the various expressions and emotions that leads the veiwer (YOU) to dream of as to whats happening in that moment you are looking at.

Hope you Enjoy

We definitely are still Suby & Sinem - Creative Photographers

very nice composition and highlight control. I like the washed out look of the enviroment, it works very nicely.
Nice pic S&S. Since I have not been on SC that long, I have not seen this kind of pic from you guys in the past. Good to see that your car has many gears. smile

This shot is immediate and engaging in a way that studio work can never be. Of course that's exactly your point. I am just agreeing smile

I agree an interesting change from your usual posts, I find the pillar on the right a bit too eye grabbing.
Wise words Suby ... What's all this about photography and rules !!! Never heard of that. I just go with my instinct more often than not ... I really like this. Bring on more street photography ... I just love it. cheers richard

All that talk about textbooks - are you 2 appologising for something? No need to, this is a great street shot - even if your model kept fiddling with her phone. Light play from the back is great as well.

The kind of thing I like to see. The authentic "human" side of photography which is something I don't really find in studio photography. Very engaging to the viewer.
Love this shot. I understand that the brightness and resistance that the image has are the one that you wanted to obtain, right? Of another way, I believe that contraste/brillo is too much wink

This picture could tell a story.

I agree wholeheartedly with your words - it's the moment that counts.

very good street shot...like the greys...
This is something I find really difficult to do. I don`t seem to be able to pluck up the courage to capture `people` with my camera. I am still very self-conscious with it. I hope it will come eventually because, as your photograph shows, their is such interest and impact to be had. Immediately, this captures the attention of the viewer, and start firing question in the mind. (:o)

2008 summed up. Someone in intense mood of concentration staring at a mobile phone. I hate the stupid things (They are useful sometimes thoughsmile )

This is a striking image..it could have easily been one from a Magnum gallery somewhere...or another reportage photographer...One thing though, I thought(according to your rules)you loved your pixies a bit on the dark side. Couldn't imagine your patience with strong highlights...but in all i think it does not take from the beauty of this. Well done.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks bro, lovely props coming from you smile New year, new outlook on our photography. smile
