This week, I am sharing with you some pictures of mine, with a little bit of Saul Leiter style, and am offering some tips to follow his lead.
Feel free to read first the article with his own impressive pictures, if you want to.
Picking pictures with a little bit of Saul Leiter style, in my own database, made me realize why his photographs are, really, so strong.
He used so much ways to lead our eye that the subject obviously pop out of the pictures!
It’s incredible to notice how Saul Leiter used composition to serve the photographs legibility.
What all his pictures have in common is a differentiated impact of the picture’s areas.
The first thing I remember of my feelings, discovering Saul Leiter work, was to be astonished by his use of light.
Indeed, Saul Leiter lays shadows near lit areas and create, this way, a really strong contrast.
Moreover, when the sun is shining, the subject seems to be under the spotlights and its impact is incontestable!
Look at the light.
Notice when a beam of light lit especially a subject to enhance its impact!
Do you like to seek spotlight beams of light, use chiaroscuro and change your surroundings in a stage?
Pictures like this can be created in any season at any time, depending of the street angle, the place etc.
Observe that, in all my photons color is working with light to enhance the subject’s impact.
I wish you wonderful spotlight pictures!
