My latest article for Petapixel Magazine

The Art of De-escalation in Street Photography

So I wrote another article for Petapixel. This one’s about dealing with confrontation when out making street photography. You can read it here. Be sure to scroll through the comments. The trolls were really active on this one. Very entertaining stuff.

What?

StephenBulger-47-Edit

Had a fun day downtown today. Caught this little fella waiting on his owner. I had to call him to get him to turn my way. Worked out just how I was hoping. Tomorrow’s supposed to be like the best day we’ve had this winter, with the temps reaching a high of maybe 10 C (50 F). Hoping to get out again for a very long walkabout.

Best ‘Sage

Shot this ten days back. I was drawn to the nice light, and dialed it up further in post. They make some fine street dogs, although I rarely eat that stuff anymore.

Red & White & Black

SnowyRainySunday-78

Got out all weekend shooting again. Gosh I must have walked like 20 kms. Today we had some nice fluffy snowflakes, although by the time I made this image it was pretty much a rain event. I laughed when I noticed the dude’s jacket matched the colours of the bus. Talk about lucky timing on my part. I could have easily straightened the image in Lightroom but sometimes I like the angles. It sort of makes me think of Garry Winogrand’s style. Hope you got out for some shooting yourselves, if you’re into that.

My latest street photography article

Street Photography Risk and Reward

So today Petapixel Magazine (an online photography magazine) published my second article, Street Photography: Risk and Reward. Give it a read and let me know what you think. Or better yet, give it a read and if you like it, share it.

In case you’re interested, here’s a link to the first article of mine they published, Street Photography and Photographing Children. Hope you read it and enjoy it.

And did it ever snow…

FirstSnow2020-239-Edit

Had a pretty good snow storm yesterday. Didn’t get nearly as much of it as they’d predicted but it was still a good ol’ winter blast from mother nature. Made for a good day to get out there with the camera, although it wasn’t easy keeping it dry. I laughed when I noticed this guy sitting in a chair waiting for the bus. Great idea. And the public transit system was a total mess yesterday. But we all survived. Hope you did, too.

Trippy

Shot this today outside the Apple Store in Toronto’s Eaton Centre. Played around with the shapes for a while until I came up with this idea. Then I had to wait to get a single person inside the box. In the end it all came together as visualized. Previsualization is one of the differences between “taking” and “making” a photograph.
