NEW STREET AGENDA:
THE PHOTOGRAPHER / ITCHING IMAGES

The same isn’s always that interesting, is it?

I don’t know how it is with you but I often try to add an extra to a crowd or a group of people. The result is that you enhance the strength of both: the crowd and the extra.

You should not have problems recognising the extra in this image. Nor should you have any problems to recognise the crowd.

Actually, I am using a gestalt factor in this shot. The factor of common fate or uniform destiny.  I bend it a little and add the extra.

I call this inching model for Breaking The Waves. Try it out.

Need to know more about Itching Images? Please open the link. Any of them.

Good luck.

NEW STREET AGENDA:
VISUAL BASICS. MAY - JUNE CHALLENGE IS READY.

You will probably not believe this but the May – June Challenge for New Street Agenda: Visual Basics, is on. One day early. Gives you one extra day of preparation.

The challenge is called The Conversation. It is not what you think so you need to read the full briefing. 

The briefing is in a special forum section.

You load your photos to the basecamp, which is a Facebook group. 

If you photograph is excellent, it will be shared in the forum section and be considered for the annual book based on New Street Agenda: Visual Basics.

Start reading the briefing for the May – June Challenge. Shoes on.

Good luck.

NEW STREET AGENDA:
WHAT THE RABBIT TOLD ME

"You may remember the little drawing that at one and the same time is an illustration of a rabbit and a duck. It is uses in psychological tests to establish what people see. Some see the rabbit, others see the duck. After a little training you might be able to shift between the two.

If you are really unlucky you will only be able to see one of them. No matter how much you try.

It is called the Rabbit-Duck Illusion and Wikipedia can tell you more of the story.

There are two things to be learned from this illusion. The first is that the content of what you perceive is never wholly out there. You are partly creating it as you turn your attention to it."

NEW STREET AGENDA:
NO PLACES LEFT AT STREET MEET

"I can’t remember what the target was but it definitely has been reached. We have now 19 confirmed participants.  13 being dedicated street photographers, and 6 others being their supervisors. That will do it.

There are still a few wild cards who have got an invitation. My best guess is that we will be 20 plus a few. Unless I decide to go into the travel agency business (and that was not the idea), there are no places left at the first street meet ever to be held north of Hamburg. I am sure of it."

Have a good day :-).

Knut
