I’ve just added another picture to my super-selected street photography gallery. I’ve posted this image few months ago when I was talking about my recent travel in Russia this winter. Image was taken with smartphone in February 2020. I was on a train in St. Petersburg underground in front of these two splendid lovers that didn’t notice me. So I was free to take a lot of pictures selecting the best one which is the images published above.
This is how I worked the scene. Smartphone is perfect in that situation, it is unobtrusive and silent. You can pretend to message or watch the screen for other purposes. Everybody has a phone today, so no one takes care about you; you’re only a person with his smartphone as other thousands people on the streets. That is a perfect example how a scene can evolve in front of your eyes if you linger on it. But you have to be discrete, no one has to notice you. Don’t break the magic. If I can give you a suggestion try to be natural and never never watch your subjects directly into their eyes.
This is a variant, actually my second choice. I like the kindness of the moment.
And this is my favorite one, the image I posted in my street photography gallery, emotion section. I tried also a black and white version but honestly it work better in colors.
That’s all folks
Stay well, have always light in your life
