Da Beat goes street
« on: July 17, 2017, 06:20:56 AM »

Da Beat is planning on doing some more streetphotography in the coming weeks, so in order not to spam other threads with unnecessary crap he decided to start one of his own. Since it usually involves individual separate subjects, it's open to other people's contributions as well. Also i have no problem with any kind of comments, good, bad, or otherwise. (I generally ignore comments anyway ;-) )

Da Beat thought the attached pict was hilarious, but he had to stand rather awkwardly against a fence from an odd angle. He may try to sneak in on the premises later for a better capture.

He should leave well alone; he's already got the shot.

Da Beat just had to avoid taking a "selfie" of sorts.

Good one Oscar. But I've never seen a sun that would throw a shadow that sharp.

Yes, that's what struck me in the scene as well. The lamppost is quite close to the wall and to the side of the lens here, but just far enough to not show my own shadow. I had to use a slight tilt&shift correction to get the head on view.

No, Slobodan; in yours, by virtue of scale, the penumbra has much greater oppotunity not to show!

This site is becoming laden with false analogies!

Google streetview

Now that's a clever way to do location spotting! I'd never have thought of it. But I bet every housebreaker in the world has.

Thanks, Oscar. And thanks for the Google street view that shows how tall that lamp is. I suspected it was pretty tall, since the sun's rays aren't going to be at your own height unless you're standing on a plain just as the sun rises or sets. It's a very interesting shot.
