CONFIDENCE © STEVEN WILLARD

I don’t get much opportunity for street photography, but every time I do I’m reminded how difficult it is for me, and how exciting when things work out.

I saw this woman approaching me on the other side of the street and realized there was a photo opportunity in the making, if I could time it right. It was one of those situations where there was barely time to get the camera to my eye and press the shutter.

There are several things I like about this image; the contrast between the linearity of the building and the shape of he woman in her long dress, the contrast of textures and the contrast between the static building and the implied movement of her stride. But what I like most is her. She looks like she knows where she is going, and she is confident she will get there.

  1. This is an excellent image Steven 🙂 Street photography is a tough genre for me also but there is nothing more rewarding than when everything comes together and the shot turns out well. Awesome work.

  2. To me there is also movement in your picture. The woman is moving sidewards and the building upwards which gives a certain feeling of dynamics. And yes, street photography is rather difficult, but pictures like this one can stimulate you to go on. Do by all means!
