Street photography video: Hunting out the light and how to isolate colour in an image

Here’s another video I made with with the crew from London for Adorama TV. It was so inspiring to be back in London. So many wonderful textures and photo opportunities. In this video I talk about how hunting out the light and looking for shapes in the shadows can be used creatively in street photography. Of course, I had to snap an iconic London red bus and I demonstrate a really quick and easy way to isolate the colour from the background.

If you genuinely like the video, please visit it HERE on YouTube and click the “LIKE” button. I seem to be attracting a lot of  “Dislikers” who seem to be threatened by the wonderful images we iPhone photographers and image makers create. Thank you for your support!I should stress, that I am really only interested in genuine likes. If you happen to leave a comment and subscribe to the series as well that will be a bonus!

    Excellent tips Nicki . The video was short, to the point, and very helpful. I especially enjoyed how you set up how to use the technique, and then showed an example of the results. Well done!
