When I see a photo, or the beginnings of one, I stop, with no warning, so I can survey the scene, process the settings and compose the photo, as it unfolds before me. Boss, (pictured above) on the other hand, can wander on for sometime before the realization of a missing Wally sets in! Now in the past this has sometimes led to a severe tongue lashing followed by some light earache but every now and then it can work to great advantage, as this photo shows. Now the only question I have is… is this still Street photography?
The photo is natural and unposed, I did not manipulate it in any way, shape or form. Boss stopped and waited in this position without any coaxing or direction from me but if she had not been with me then this photo would never have happened. I would have waited for the human element to exist in the image but then that would be a very different photo indeed, so does that mean that this one is almost staged or faked? Maybe faked is a bit strong but can I really call it Street? All answers and/or comments are welcome!
