    Well done looking to apply some ‘rules/guides!’ Nice one! Ask yourself if the background helps/adds to the story or is it a little busy/cluttered? For me, its a little busy because so much is in focus. ‘PROJECT OPPORTUNITY’: Working with what you have i.e. set that lens to 23mm ( I have the Fuji X100s which has a fixed 23mm lens) which is an ideal focal length for street shots. It makes you get a little closer/intimate with the subject. Look to ‘change your point of view’ i.e. could you have ‘got down really low using that guitar bag’ to fill the foreground in front of you and having him rear up from behind it? Show me the scene in a more ‘original and creative’ way. Thanks for sharing. Dave

      Thanks! I am really shy so I felt like if I get any closer I will make him uncomfortable.. :)) I tried to stay away as much as possible :D the problem is that shooting scenes like that it is really hard to get exactly what you want with a perfect background. I struggle the most though with invading the personal space of others. It’s hard to take pictures of someone if I’m not sure they are ok with it

      I know what you mean. Think of it another way: We all have phones that take pictures and most of those people dont think twice about shooting a subject…up close too! As long as you respect others ‘personal space’ and ‘perhaps ask permission’ you should be fine but it takes a little practice and a ‘have a go’ attitude’ Liking your shots and enjoying your progression!

      Thanks a lot! I will do more walking around the cities and search for something interesting and maybe even ask for a permission from time to time :) I should definitely take the attitude you were talking about. Well, practice makes perfection! I will not stop posting :)

    I think shooting from a slightly higher angle would show a little more loneliness. Nice shot though!
