Streets Saturday for Week 14 3

Since I’m now tutoring a second student in the evening at Starbucks, there are even more pictures of Starbucks this week.

Nothing beats good, natural side-lighting.

Another photo of the same person, but with more context and conveying a different mood.

I love the expression on her face. There’s so much joy there.

Now that the Starbucks photos are out of the way, let’s do some random street photos from Taipei.

I wonder if he can handcraft a leather camera strap?

A step down from Starbucks. Did you know that they used to use Starbucks beans until they were cut-off? Apparently, SBC didn’t appreciate McDs ‘McCafe’ side business.


And finally, we return back to Starbucks for this week’s obligatory phonography shot.

Until next week. Comments are always appreciated. :-)

    You’re right about that side-lighting – I especially see it in that lady’s face on the forth photo.

    love your shots. even if it’s shots in starbucks it is as natural as any other street shot (and as good).
    and love it even further that despite it is black and white (majority of them), it still speaks up as if it is of a thousand colors, not just interms of tone but it is as if it is a clips, and photo speaks, for the scene itself.

    when can i shoot like you, Brian, i wonder.
    for, i am never a street shoot / portrait person…
