Talking Movies

Introduction

Talking Movies returns for another week, and with this instalment I will be examining the hugely praised Brazilian movie ‘City of God’. The Talking Movies series shows you how you can get more out of your street photography by studying movies and learning from the composition and lighting effects movie-makers use to make visually arresting art. As usual, I’ll choose three scenes from the movie to look at, and then I’ll show three of my own street photographs to highlight the similarities with the movie and illustrate how cinema has influenced my photography. I’ll also point out differences between my shots and the movie stils, to emphasise how I’m yet to be able to put all the ideas from the movie into practice! Previous instalments of this series can be found on the Talking Movies section of the website.
