Today, I am continuing with the series of blurred and bleached out passersby taken in a burst in Daegu, South Korea. This first image screamed to be shot. I had found my backdrop of a boarded up store and now all I had to do was to wait for people to walk by and for me to fill the frame. This girl, fashionably attired in wonderful contrasting blacks and whites came into the frame. Photographic serendipity! I love it when it happens.
I processed this in Snapseed, increasing the brightness, playing a little with contrast and levels.
The iPhone photo is another in the series of cool elderly Korean dudes. This guy in the hat – hats make for such cool images – was waiting for a bus. I got as close as I could and snapped with the iPhone. I like his gaze and elegance. There is such grace in these old Korean men. Grace and wisdom.
It’s a new week. Have a good one.
Great colours and atmosphere in the top photo. Love it!
Just a note to tell you I deeply enjoy seeing and reading your work regularly now that you’ve kept up this blog, even if I rarely comment. You are a talented man, B, and it’s a pleasure being your humble friend.
I love how you processed both these photos, and to think all this was done on your iPhone!
Thanks Nora. Only the one of the old man is with the iPhone. All photos on https://www.flickr.com/photos/instame are with the iPhone. The other account is all DSLR.
