Reflecting on a Photo Day

A Photo day is a day that I simply go out and try to practice framing,
try to warm up with my camera, and to get a hold of the inspirational
ideas that I happen to acquire from the researches that I am currently
undertaking. One of the most influential material that I find out while
I was investigating through the programme list of the “Genius of
Photography” series, and stumbled upon Herni Cartier-Breson interview.

As it has been stated in the interview that
the pictures that has been taken at a certain time mustn’t be planned
but they have to be listened to, from that approach I gave a try to
shake away my tourist gaze and not to listen what is going around myself
and try to meditate and focus on the instance that is surrounding me. As
I experienced, it is a very consuming and hard to concentrate thing to
do, in a world in which there’s is so much going around an individual.
Another thing that has been mentioned in that interview was the
geometry’s importance in the composition(which is also what mainly tried
to achieve in my pictures by making connections with the hit points of
the rule of 3rds).

These two are unprocessed pictures which are not ruined by my broken viewfinder /
camera as examples and of what i did on that day (30.03.09 – Borough Market)
