Looking at street life differently


IMG_3857.JPGI like the composition of this photo but am not happy with the lighting. So, in this post, I’m going to experiment with looking at this street life differently. This is the original photo.

IMG_3861.JPGLight corrections were made with Snapseed.

IMG_3863.JPGA blur filter was added with PhotoStudio. This really gives it a feeling of movement doesn’t it?

IMG_3865.JPGThe focus here is the “Little Tibet Restaurant” sign. For this photo and the one following below, I used the Snapseed App. The filter here is tilt shift.

IMG_3864.JPG Here I used the center focus filter.

IMG_3866.JPGAnd a whole new get away look: PhotoToaster: pale

Background info on the neighborhood:
This is Jackson Heights Queens, New York, a South Asian neighborhood with 108,000 inhabitants comprising of: Indians, Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Tibetans and Nepalese. The Lonely Planet description: “It’s the place for some of the highest quality Indian food in New York City; South Asian jewelry, clothes, and music; Bollywood films; and plain old people-watching.”

I want to “tag” Tony Rizotto at the bottom left hand corner of the photos.
Thank you Tony for hosting my week long stay in “the city that never sleeps”.

  1. I like your final edited photo. Thanks for walking us through the process. I haven’t used my PhotoToaster app in quite awhile. You have inspired me to give it a try once more.

    • Thanks Allan. That last edit was a last minute throw it in the mix to add something different, and it turned out to be my favirite also.
