Here are some street scene vignettes I found interesting during my recent expedition around downtown Greensboro. The shapes, textures, tonality and lighting seemed to all contribute to a nice composition. I hope you enjoy!
With it’s multi-level spillway, the High Point Municipal Dam at City Lake Park is like a large water sculpture. As I approached the dam, I saw this wonderful composition opportunity. But before I could get out my camera, the couple got-up and started towards their car. Fortunately they kindly agreed to return to the table so I could shoot a few compositions. Thanks to Debbie and Brian!

Last week I had dinner in downtown Winston-Salem with my photographer friend Owens Daniels. Afterwards, we both grabbed our camera and set out on a local street photography expedition. I had so much fun. We met some nice folks, found some great scenes and Owens shared many of his proven street photography tips.
- I must do more street photography.
- Shoot with a photographer friend. We grow through shared experience.
- Learn how to see without thinking. I’m reading a good book on this now – “Opening the Good Eye”.
- Develop your own style.
- Don’t be afraid of high ISO! My D750 higher ISO settings look great, Lightroom does a great job of minimizing noise, and I usually add film grain to the composition in my workflow.
