nightfall stories

Hi there! 

Thank you Maria for this great class! It was really nice to see and hear about your process and settings! 

I just photograph as an hobby and I focus more on film photography. For this class project I thought I'd share some old and new pictures with different feel. Most of those have been captured with my smartphone, so the quality isn't super sharp but it does add a nice grainy touch sometimes, I think!

This is one of my favorite picture. It has been taken in the NYC subway at Union Square. As I was waiting for the subway to arrive, I could see those legs passing by and the movement was very hypnotic so I thought I'd capture this moment. In terms of edit, I've contrasted the hell out of it and made the yellow of the sidewalk pop out a little bit more.

Another one that I like a lot from my trip in NYC was taken at a dance jam session in Coney Island. The sun was slowly setting and this little girl was dancing in front of me and a guy was playing with a tambourin. I was really happy that my picture captured both of these energies as well as the general vibe. I also played with the saturation to give it a more 'sunset-y' look and added contrast.

This third picture was taken during D'Angelo's concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival. This guy in front of me kept moving his arms and being so cheerful. Luckily I caught the moment where he did the 'Rock N Roll' sign with his hands.

The last one was also during a concert. It was J-Cole concert and the crowd was on fire. I love capturing the clapping motion during concerts because the movement bring some cool energy to the shots sometimes. Here I like that it is a bit blurry which shows that it was capturing movements. For the edit I played with the colors of the spots. When I took the picture the spot were blue-green so I tried to play with these colors for the entire shot to catch that sort of 'nostalgic' vibe. 


Let me know what you think. What looks cool, what doesn't. I don't show my pictures a lot, except on my flat's walls haha, so it's nice to have a place to get some feedback. I'll try to do more low light film photograph and post it as well.

Thank you :-)
