This week’s image has been submitted by Anton Fortein. It shows us a chap walking his dog coming out of a covered area into the bright light. Everything feels old, the buildings, the person, the dog, the strange cupboard on the right of the image, it feels, because of the building in the background, somehow New York. I chose this image because there is so little awry with it ,I was interested to find ways of taking what is already a great photo and pushing it to the next level.
I think there is a lot of energy in the pose of the musician, and definitely one for black an white as the contrast between shirt and cap and shoes I think really works. I’m not a fan of vignetting as I think it breaks the audience’s ‘suspension of belief’ – in that I mean if the vignetting is spotted then the viewer feels post production has been applied and somehow a lie has been told through the image.
