Street Photography: Fort Myers

Hi, I'm Maxx. I am extremly passionate about photography and really love learning new things. This was my first attempt at street photography. Although I had many difficulties, I enjoyed my time doing it and could see myself shooting street photography more often! This was a great opportunity to try something new! I want to thank Trash for giving a great and informative class. Here are my photos

I live in the quaint town of Fort Myers, located on the southwest coast of Florida. The downtown area is extremly modest, yet gave me a good experience with this assignment. Any comments would be much appreciated!

Street Portrait:

As soon as I saw this spot I knew I wanted to capture my street portrait here. I loved the way the pathway disappears into the center of the photo. I actually waited about 20 minutes for someone to walk down towards me. This man happened to be a great subject. He was so engrossed in some sight that he almost walked right into me! 

Look up: Downtown Fort Myers doesn't have many tall buildings. They also are pretty spread out. I have always loved the old cinema looking sign downtown and knew this would be perfect for my lookup. In my edit I wanted to give it a grunge esque feel and am thrilled with the way it came out.

Motion: I tried shooting pedestrians passing, and cyclists, but my eye kept being drawn to the Trolley. I love the vibe it has! It passed by a few times so this was, I think, my second attempt at shooting it.  

Night Shot: Besides this photo, all the others of this series were taken on 1/28/15. I took this a few months ago of downtown from over a bridge. I really love the vibe of it, and the ambient light that the city gives off. I really like the night landscapes.

Once again thanks! I hope you liked them.
