We return for another instalment of ‘This Week on Streethunters.net’, our weekly run-down of the recent blog posts and activity on the Streethunters.net street photography website and social media pages. If you would like to check out older weekly summaries going back over a few months, you can find find historic posts in the ‘This Week’ category of the website. And with that, we shall crack on with breaking down what we had going on this week!
Monday began with us revealing one of our custom made Streethunters.net slideshows showcasing the work of a contest-winning street photographer. This month it was the turn of Svilen Nachev, who was the winner of the Streethunters.net ‘The Colour Red’ monthly theme contest! As you are probably aware, the winning photographers from our street photography monthly theme contests receive lots of exposure on our social media channels and website, including having their winning photo featured on the website and as our Facebook, Twitter and G+ cover photos, and an exclusive Streethunters.net interview. As well as all this, the winning photographer has around 50 of their favourite street photos turned into a video slideshow to be aired on our YouTube channel to our 12,000 subscribers. So, make sure you get round to checking out Svilen’s top street shots set to the backdrop of a cool funk soundtrack!
Tuesday is the day when we get our #tbt game on, and take a rummage through our old blog posts to see what we can unearth to re-share with all you guys following our social media channels. This week’s ‘throwback’ took us back to a superb street photo by Samuel George Wells which had been posted in our Streethunters.net Readers Community and then cross analysed by Spyros Papaspyropoulos as a Featured Street Photo. Dive into the blog post to learn more about this lovely timeless street shot!
Our pick for the Streethunters.net Facebook Group Cover Photo this week was this wonderful study of light and shadow by Andrea Ratto. This street photo shows how a great understanding of lighting and a perfectly captured exposure can result in a really impressive abstract shot. Superb work Andrea, well done!
Our week isn’t complete without a roam through the Streethunters.net Flickr Group and a review of the latest submissions to the photo pool. The photos on show here represent great art made all around the world and featuring people from all walks of life in all sorts of beautiful and unusual locations. We say this regularly but we really do mean it – if you are ever lacking for inspiration in your street photography a half hour browse through one of the best street photography galleries on the web is a guaranteed way of getting those creative juices flowing again. What are you waiting for?!
We closed off the week with a feature post penned by yours truly in which I set out my top tips and advice in a guide to high contrast street photography. If you’re keen on this style of street shooting which lends itself well to both digital and film street photography and have ever been tempted to give it a try, make sure you read through our blog post and then give it a go! You can even let us know how you get on with it in the comments below the blog post!
That brings us to a close for this week on Streethunters.net, but make sure you’ve got yourselves prepped for week to come when we’re going to be firing a whole lot more white hot street photography news, photos and features at you!
