jump by Gonzale jump by Gonzale
it's back. from the series : [link]

i was going home. and as i had searched some sunny places to photograph people and my street was not sunny, i had turned off my camera. i don't know why this kid drew my attention, he was sitting with his brother. i stopped, turned on my camera, he saw me, i waited, he looked at his brother and jumped. i took the photo and left. i'm like a robber when i take photos. never take the risk to have problems with my models. plus i was on the other side of the street, and it's a big street.

I think the composition here is fine. adds so much more to the fact that it was sponteneous. I love this, made me smile!

That's such an awesome description... I do the same thing. Sit in waiting for the person(s) I am trying to shoot to do just what I want them to, and then I shoot what I want to with my lens, and then just walk away blending into the streets so I don't have to talk to them or interact with them at all.

It works best that way, I've found! ;)

the composition of this photo is great. The jumper is placed perfectly. I wish the walker could have been a step or two more to the left but that wouldn't be possible unless you walked up and asked everyone for a redo. Great job..

Je trouve ça vraiment chouette que tu oses prendre ce type de photos, j'en voit peu sur DA (peut être que je ne fais pas attention) et je trouve ça bien dommage. (Je dis ça mais moi je suis du genre à ne pas oser :giggle:)
C'est vivant, adorable.

This rox. Did you know that you are the one that inspired for street photography (infact this photograph was the one that draged me into street photograhy). I have allways wanted to do that since i have seen your gallery. Now i finally gathered some courage and im trying :)

Gratefully fav+

This is really awsome. But there is a lot of space to the right. Create a balance with the space.
