With Toby in Lansing, MI this week on the photo walk a bit of street shooting was the plan. Street shooting can be a bit different for some and a favorite subject for others, it’s quite the polarizing subject.
Winners this week were chosen by Scott and Roy for the challenge.
You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #prtv_yellow. From time to time a color challenge is helpful for concentrating on shooting. Trying to spot a color makes it a challenge to focus on only that while ignoring the rest. To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_yellow.

A nice little festival, I like how you focused on the alley and lights then left the people a bit underexposed.
Scott’s Honorable Mentions:
When you visit a new city the back alley shots can be the best sometimes.
Color makes for a nice contrast to the usual street photos.
Two tricks for street shooting can be completely missed out on some times but make for a great photo. Depending on the city finding color can be a bit challenging making this stand out. As for the second everyone hunts for the candid portrait when focusing on just a body part can play to a photos strength.
Roy’s Honorable Mentions:
Street photography can be fun, just look at the singing binman!
Street photography can be political and current with the news. Shooting from the back, a bit candid, puts the focus on the subject rather than the crowd. Having the white sign at the top right worked out well as it draws vs it’s darker counterparts.
