Street Photography at the Beach Part IV


As we all know, the “street” in  street photography does not refer only to pictures taken on the streets of downtown. Any public area is the domain of street photography and as such, the beach and all its surrounding areas, are fantastic spots to get great images. I went out recently with my Fuji X100 to Hollywood Beach and took some images .

“When I’m ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I’m interested in something which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without.”Ansel Adams

“Some pictures are tentative forays without your even knowing it. They become methods. It’s important to take bad pictures. It’s the bad ones that have to do with what you’ve never done before. They can make you recognize something you hadn’t seen in a way that will make you recognize it when you see it again. “- Diane Arbus

“When you begin a picture you often make some pretty discoveries. You must be on guard against these. Destroy the thing, do it over several times. In each destroying of a beautiful discovery, the artist does not really suppress it, but rather condenses it, makes it more substantial. What comes out in the end is the result of discarded finds. Otherwise you become your own connoisseur.”

Pablo Picasso
