My Lucky 7 Daily Deviation

I have got a New Year Gift from our beloved and super genius Street CV hosagu. A Daily Deviation for the photo "A haunted genius". As you know it was an obituary column from Globe and Mail newspaper about Dave Heath: A haunted genius behind the camera. I was passing besides a local café and noticed it by chance and took the shot. Here is the original article...
Also a great clip from YouTube about Dave Heath.
Thank you all for all the comments and favs!
Wish you all Happy 2017.

Hello and welcome to a day late's issue of Neat Street Features! I was out late last night here in Seattle and was working the M3 and the X70. I decided it wouldn't be such a big deal to have Neat Street delayed one day, as I don't often get chances to really shoot lately. Some really great captures this week :wow:
Going to be developing a roll tonight probably. :excited:
Check out this awesome contest that hosagu has initiated! It's suiteable for anyone!

Hello and welcome to Neat Street Features No. 18. This has been a great week for street photography among those I watch as I've added so many deviations to my collection and can't wait to share them with you! So this edition has a little more features then the average week.
I want to congratulate slownumbers:iconslownumbers: on her recent Daily Deviation! I thoroughly enjoy following her work and she never seizes to seize our eyes and mind with her creative and brilliant street photography.

A great capture that really gets the eyes and mind working. :clap:
Now lets enter a world, our world, through the eyes and lenses of our fellow humans.

3rd DD ! be honest, I'm not so sure this photo deserves to be chosen for DD among all those beautiful street photos made by true masters of street photography  Facepalm Shrug . 
I find this photo "easy to take" and I think almost anyone could do it; i find it a bit cliche(ish)... I do like the contrast, composition , juxtaposition and even possible interpretations but, for me, it is just a so-so street photo (like most of my street photos rofl )...
my choices for street DDs would be more like...  well, this :

Street photography is a state of mind.
It is a way to look at the ordinary and see the unusual in it,
to look at everyday situations and find a decisive moment in them,
to look at candid happenings and see iconic interactions
between people and their surroundings in them.
My name is Mary. I was born in 1977 in Bologna, where I live trying to squeeze street photography between family and work. Or rather the opposite.

Hi everybody !

Even if it's not obvious for most of the Deviants, I'm a kind of streetphotographer. Not a regular one, not one of the best, but a kind of.

Till a few days, I was a team member of two famous groups here on dA : :iconprogressive-street: and :iconthe-yard-collective:

But it was not really my place, because my street is not their street : I'm too classical, too strict, or too compliant, in a word : too old.

So, I retired, but I will shoot street on and on, in my own manner.


If you want to know what is my style, here are some of my street works for the last year.

Have a nice day :)

Tha bad and the good news
Hi all!! How have you been? As you may noticed I'm now part of the senior team because my term as the Macro Photography CV has already finished. These two past years have been incredible, it was a pleasure to be part of this incredible team, Moonbeam13, JustACapharnaum, JenFruzz, hosagu, overdebated, morbidman187, Mrs-Durden, Queen-Kitty ... all of you are rockstars, not many people know what's behind being a CV, it's not just about accepting and declining DD suggestions, there's a tough work behind the scenes. Since then I gave 90 DDs, I met fantastic people through the process, learned a lot and also I think some people learned from me, and that's really nice. 
Now the news... the first ones are not so good... unfortunately a serious health problem of my girlfriend will make me decrease my activity here, but I won't leave you, I promise!! It's just that I will have other priorities in my life that eventually will keep me occupied. But I'll be here as often as poss

Cleaning-up Site Naming

As mentioned in last week’s Beginnings of Site Simplification journal and the new DeviantArt Timeline, we’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to make DeviantArt a simplified and unified experience — ultimately leading to increased participation from new and longtime deviants, adding more favourites, comments, and deviousness to the site as a whole.
Because DeviantArt has been around for nearly 15 years, we recognize that the site has accumulated a number of terms, words, and names for our various features and functions — some of which have multiple or similar meanings, and many of which increase confusion around how the site works.
We understand that DeviantArt is a community of artists from around the world who will use all kinds of creative expressions to des

How do you find other deviants?

DeviantArt is a vast community with over 35 million registered deviants.  As such, it can be hard to find people you know or artists you might be interested in watching.  As part of our recent initiative to simplify and unify the DeviantArt experience, we're looking into new and easier ways to find help you find deviants you want to interact with.
We recently posted this question in the Forums to get a sense for how best to improve these circumstances, and now we're interested in hearing from the community at large.

Top Community Feature Requests and Our Responses

In May, we introduced the DeviantArt Timeline as a method of communicating with deviants and providing transparency about what’s planned for our collective future. During the site simplification process that followed, we received a number of comments from deviants asking why we were working on the features presented on the Timeline instead of other things. Many of the features brought up in these comments are ones that have been requested for years. We want to be more transparent about these suggested features, why some of them haven’t happened yet, and why some of them may never happen.
These requests are from past Site Updates, the Suggestions Forum, surveys, and individual requests we’ve received.

If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide or self-harm and are in immediate danger, seek help as soon as possible by calling a local emergency telephone number, a suicide prevention hotline, or by going to the nearest emergency room.
At DeviantArt, we care deeply about our community – aiming to provide all our members with a safe and fun environment to create and grow.  However, we do not have trained medical professionals who can respond directly to life-threatening emergencies.  Please use the following resources if you are concerned about the safety of a DeviantArt member – including yourself.

Celebrate 16 Years of DeviantArt
DeviantArt launched 16 years ago, providing a community of artists and art appreciators with a place to call home. Now, on August 7th, as we celebrate our Sweet Sixteen, we’re bringing a birthday celebration to our deviants around the world! From the comfort of your computer, help us celebrate the reason we’re all here today — our vibrant and inspirational community!
Standing at the cusp of Internet-adulthood, it’s always enjoyable to look back and embrace the carefree days of our artistic youth.

Origins of Street Photography and Jazz MusicStreet Photography
“A photo is a small voice, at best, but sometimes – just sometimes – one photograph or a group of them can lure our senses into awareness. Much depends upon the viewer; in some, photographs can summon enough emotion to be a catalyst to thought.” – W. Eugene Smith

Jazz and Photography. The Street. They are one.
I am a pianist and have studied the instrument for thirteen years, learning the very foundations and all of the precise, rigid rules and techniques that Classical music demands. I have played Rachmaninov. I obtained my medal and diploma to teach music and Classic standards. But... it turns out that the thrill of a Charlie Parker's free sound, or the Thelonious Monk's inventivity, took me
The Masters: Mr Raymond DepardonStreet Photography
I’m coming from journalism, but at the same time I’m tempted by poetry, politics, and maybe the idea of being a witness, a belief that you can still change things with the image.
A Bit of Biography
from the Magnum Photos Agency
Raymond Depardon was born in France in 1942 and began taking photographs at the age of twelve, on his family's farm in Garet. He left for Paris in 1958 to apprentice as a photographer-optician in Villefranche-sur-Saône but joined the Dalmas agency of Paris as a reporter in 1960. He co-founded the Gamma agency in 1966 and was able to report from all over the world. Between 1974 and 1977, Depardon was a photographer and film-maker, covering various world events such as the kidnap of French ethnologist François Claustre in northern Chad. He found a passion in making documentary films. Some of which include the 1974 film Une Partie de Campagne and
Tips and tricks for handling light and shadowsStreet Photography Week
Many street photographers use the technique of photographing people against the light to get silhouette images. I love taking silhouette photos because they are featureless and provide enough food for thought. Silhouettes are not about specific people but about human beings in general. Their solid black color brings weight, drama and emotions. Silhouettes make images look more artsy and painting-like, leaving viewers to use their imagination to complete underexposed details. It is very easy to take silhouette photos if you know couple tricks. I want to share some with you.
The general rule is to find a light background, it can be sunset, doorway, open sky or sunny wall with shadowy area in front of it (see the image below). Your object will be black-lit, photographed against light.

Use manual exposure mode on your camera. Set aperture on F/8-11 to get in focus both subject and background and meter the brightest part of your p
The Masters: Mr Robert DoisneauStreet Photography
"I prefer my hesitations, my false paths, my stammering, to a preconceived idea." - Robert Doisneau
A Bit of Biography...
Robert Doisneau was a French photographer, born in 1912 and raised by his aunt, who was a pioneer of photojournalism as we know it today. He studied arts and crafts from a young age and began to experiment with photography when he was sixteen years old. He became the staff photographer while working for an advertising agency in the 1920s. It was just the beginning of his illustrious career.
Soon thereafter, Doisneau saw his work published in magazines and he worked on well-known advertising and photojournalistic campaigns. When World War II began, he was recruited as both a soldier and photographer for the French Resistance.
He was well-known for his unassuming, surreal, and lighthearted portrayal of life on the streets of Paris. Le baiser de l'hôtel de ville (Kiss by the Town Hall), one of his most renown
An architect on streetStreet Photography Week
Hello, my name is José Calheiros, and I am an architect that really loves to take street photos.
I don't like concepts or labels on things, I really think that feelings are the most important thing when we take photos on the street or when we are in the middle of the action or even far away. After that I think composition is very important. My architect genes come out and speak to me saying so, so let's see what I can tell you
I only take one photo of the subject, because that is, for me, the right moment and not the moment after. If the photo is wrong I delete and move away, I was not able to catch it.
When I am ready to go out and take photos, what do I do first?
What i do?
I first choose a lens. Usually I have my 24/70 mm (2.8) but when I travel I also use my 14/24mm (2.8)

EDUARDO GAJEIRO a Portuguese photographerStreet Photography Week
Eduardo Gajeiro, born in 1923 in Sacavém, Portugal, is one of that country's best photographers. His first photograph was published on the front page of the Portuguese journal Diário de Notícias at twelve years old. Today, nearly eighty years later, he is still working as a freelance photographer. 
His is a life full of amazing experiences. He worked at the Fábrica de Loiça de Sacavém in the 1940s and 1950s to document the life of its workers, heavily influencing his decision to become a photojournalist. When he was twenty years old, he collaborated with several magazines and journals including Diário Ilustrado, Eva, Match Magazine and Sábado. He became the official photographer for the National Ballet Company and for the Portuguese Presidence and Parliament. Additionally, he has worked for international companies such as Deutsche Gramophone-Germany, Yamaha-Japan, and Cartier. 
Gajeiro is an h
Cliche's in Street PhotographyStreet Photography Week
Street photography isn't about judgement, it is about visual impact. There is a tendency among some viewers to make hasty cliché presumptions about Street photography.  Most of the major painters copied others at the early stages of their careers. Photographers photographing clichés is just a natural step in their development. Sometimes even the photographers do not know if their shot resembles another one. The journal "Similitude Street" is a perfect example where two different photographers' photos resemble each other in a very close way.
Clichés are not necessarily bad. It's the emotional element that turns mere cliches into works that are relevant and emotionally resonant.
It's this emotional aspect that breathes life into all work, cinematic, photographic, or what have you, no matter how many times they have been visited in the past.
The great themes in life never go out of fashion, after all. While our en
The Masters: S. Leiter and A.Fellig (Weegee) Street Photography
What is Street Photography?
There are so many things that Leiter and Fellig, two great photographers, have taught us. They are two photographers who are the antipodes and perhaps not even street photographers. I don’t think street photography can be taught, and I guess that the best way is to follow your own instincts. But certainly by looking at the images of these two great photographers you can reflect and learn ways to get to know yourself . The most important thing is for your work to have its own personality and never let yourself be influenced by styles, fads and definitions.
Here we have two opposite characters: one who seeks the beauty and not seeking success while the other wants to describe the crudity of reality and said that he was the best (with some irony).
(thanks a lot to Eric Kim ).
Contemporary street photographers: Lukas VasilikosStreet Photography Week
“I became a photographer because it’s the easiest way for me to tell things about myself. My view of coming into this world, living and eventually dying.” - Lukas Vasilikos
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life,”  said Picasso. But what is art, what is reality, and what is the relationship between them? Does art help us to escape reality or force us to face it? I think it does both.  Moreover art and reality could be interchangeable, mixed into sharp slices of everyday life.  We can see it in the works of one the most interesting and original contemporary street photographers, Lukas Vasilikos.  His images are visual proof that the world is a theater and men and women are merely actors playing their roles. 

“The street is a field with endless possibilities, where surprises always hide behind the next corner. When

I have my camera, but should I change...?!
I generally think that in terms of photography--and not only for street--the camera is not the soul and primary factor in taking a good shot. But for sure, we will all agree that a good camera, technically oriented to your utilization, will be better.
We will first discuss some important factors which are to be considered for street photography, prior to talking about the gear.
The factors to consider for a camera for street photography
“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Dorothea Lange
Autofocus: Automatic focus is great, but... When you shoot with the intent to capture a decisive moment, even a quarter of second to get your autofocus locking could cause you to miss the right moment. Therefore
Emerging Talents in Street Photography - DA ArtistStreet Photography
The street photographs on DA
I hereby on DeviantArt enjoy watching many different street photography Artists. Some of them are total street photographers, dedicating their passion to it... And others are doing street but not only.
I find interesting that there are many styles emphasized through their shots, showing eventually as alreaday seen during the week that Street Photography is not that narrow and can be very eclectic, in its own representation and definition...
So who are they?
I recommend to watch and give love to all of these artists... Heart


What is street photography?
Ha! You didn't read my previous journals, did you?
Street photography is "un-posed, un-staged photography which captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings".
Street photography is an eye focused on the ordinary, on the every day life. Its interest is in capturing every day moments and situations that filtered through the sensitivity, vision, personality of the photographer are able to pass emotions and sensations to the viewer.
Moments can be of every kind: ironic, sad, melancholic, surreal, wry, tender, beautiful, poetic, destabilizing, documentary. They all show aspects of life.
You can read my take on it here: Street, children, is a state of mind
I feel awkward/shy/embarrassed
Myth No 1:
People will stare at me, sue me, beat me up, break my camera, think I am a terrorist, shoot me and dance on my grave.

No, most likely people won't even notice you. Most likely they will think you are taking pictures of something else around you. Even if they do notice you, most likely they will pretend not to see you. Sometimes they will look at you as if you were a weirdo (which you are) and they will keep away, but most often they won't mind being photographed. Sometimes they will even feel flattered by it (well, ok, don't think you will get girls' phone numbers this way, though). I never had problems taking photos of strangers. If after taking a photo you look intensely to something else, people will think you were photographing it. If after taking a photo you turn and take another one...the same. If you get spotted and caught, just smile. People will be less likely to break your nose. If somebody complains abou
Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre.
Browsing dA's Street Gallery I'd say that people are under the impression that street photography is photography of:
1 street signs
2 side-walk close-ups
3 love padlocks
4 shoes (All Stars preferably)/photographer's feet
5 graffiti/tags/street art/cool vandalism
6 empty roads
7 cats
8 skaters
9 abandoned buildings/urband decay/trash
10 cool cars
11 cosplayers posing in fairs
12 family in family-trips, friends in cool poses
13 sexy models in subways/women wrestling in swimming suit (don't ask, I don't know)
14 lights bokeh
15 light paintings
So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:
Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.
Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the st
Street Photography for dummies
What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
3. People
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations. Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed" Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-

Personally, I'm a modest but passionate photographer, on an eternal learning curve, still looking eyes wide open to the world (am a serial traveller for living) and to people (beware... :)).

Definitely pushing mountains and the "idées reçues" (google it) in order to preserve my faith in human beings and the richness you can get to listen to others and discover how incredible it is to be different...

I am definitely here to share and look at great talents, artists, and even more the underexposed ones.

I am involved in some really great groups :

I'd be glad to get any kind of comments or critiques to any of my shoots, or chats and discussions... Make yourself at home...

I followed the White Rabbit far away, I thought I found back my way here and followed him again far more away.
We're both onlines now :)

I missed you all.

No more moments lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to work hard :squee:
After the rain, the rainbow... :heart:

It's been a year since you died :(
I guess I should miss you, but unfortunately that's not the case.
Well, maybe you pulled an Elvis and you're still around... who knows...
If that's the case, happy birthday.
Still, I'm keeping the cake.
