Layers of Interest in photography.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been studying the works of Henri Cartier -Bresson after i saw some of his work on the strobist website, and love his work, i have to yet to try to emulate some of his pieces but i was wondering what advice you could impart on this topic.

Im going to use mostly natural light and basically going to try to get it with a 50mm 1.8 prime and a 20mm sigma(yet to arrive).

I also some of Alexia Sinclair's work, its fasicinating but it requires too much post production manipulation and i want to try to capture layers of interest in pictures which i take on the fly.

If you want to shoot street photography in the same vein as HCB, buy a film camera, learn how to develop your own B+W film and get a feel for moments, not just random snapshots.

However, rather than emulating his work, why not try to develop your own style that can display some degree of influence? It's not easy, and don't assume that things will happen -- get around, spend days/months/years watching people in different areas and decide what you intend to portray.
