Shades

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 7 March 2011 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Our previous three posts featured dance groups Urban Lava and Kulture Break. The singer and rapper in this shot teamed up with Kulture Break for the day. He had some cool moves - and cool reflective shades!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

That's a super portrait! I think the beret is actually a baseball cap on backwards. The rappers here wear their baseball caps at all different angles.

7 Mar 2011 5:43pm

@Steve Rice: Thanks. I've now edited the title and text to remove the beret reference.

Every single time I see one of your street shots I go: WOW! Excellent light and colours here. I like the reflections in his sunglasses. Great energy and vibe

Barbara from Florida, United States

The red cap is a nice touch, so is his expression. The reflection in the sunglasses finishes this image off nicely.

7 Mar 2011 8:27pm

Don Levesque from Saint John, Canada

Great portrait! Light is amazing.
The "beret" is a baseball cap with a Major League Baseball logo on it.

7 Mar 2011 10:52pm

@Don Levesque: Thanks - I've now edited out the beret references in my text!

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

Wonderful series, so far Stephen, and that is what I love about your street series - there is
a feeling that everyone seems so happy and bright, never dull in sqaulid situations, but you
show that happiness which eludes most of the other street photographers. Superb work.

8 Mar 2011 2:41am

@Phil David Morris: Thanks, Phil. What I like about these performances is that they are free events in public open spaces. The Groovin' in the City program I've been shooting ran for 24 weeks; and it involved over 500 performers - mostly local acts. As you see from the links I’ve provided in my posts, the rap groups are also not for profit community groups aimed at young people.

Satvik from Far far away, United States

Great portrait ! The shallow dof is excellent.
