This guest post comes from Tom Pointon, who describes himself as a slow photographer based in Marseille, France. It features a few shots of a building I’d never heard of but am glad exists now that I have – the Monument to National Heroes (in English) in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. … Read more
This submission is from Jacob Martinez, a portrait photographer from Toledo, Ohio. As the title suggests, it details some time he spent in Mexico. Having not been to Mexico (yet), all I have is an image in my head of what it might be like. And I can say this … Read more
This guest post from Theo Santana features some great work from a trip he took to Iran. Shot on Kodak Gold 200 and Fuijicolor C200, it gives a glimpse into life on the road between Tehran and Shiraz.
I’ve never really looked into going to Iran so these photographs gave me a little peek of what it might be like to do so. I’m a big fan of the environmental portraits he got and the story the pictures tell.
Come take a look, give Theo’s trip to Iran some eyeballs and love, and find out where else you can follow his work should you want to.
Sebastian Jacobitz is a street photographer from Berlin, Germany, and this guest post showcases some of his undoubted talent.
It features a set of images from Berlin’s Ku’Damm shopping street, taken with a long exposure and a flash. I don’t shoot using this technique myself, so it’s great to feature the work of someone who does, and who does it well.
Come check out Sebastian’s photography and see how you can get your work featured on My Favourite Lens too.
Another guest post and another great addition to the growing number of submissions.
This one features the beginning of a project by Mambo Ferido, a street photographer based in Singapore. Having chosen a theme, Mambo is now working to make his project a reality.
Come see what that theme is, why it’s important to choose one, and how doing so can help you take your street photography to the next level too.
You’ve probably noticed that a lot of street photography is presented in high contrast monochrome, but have you ever stopped to wonder why?
It’s now pretty much an accepted ‘street photography look’, but what are its origins? How and why did this look become a thing?
Dmitri Tcherbadji has a theory. It goes back decades, and stems from film photographers having to overcome a technical issue with their gear. Come read and learn what that is.
This guest post features Mitchel Lensink’s landscapes from his hometown of Amersfoort, in The Netherlands.
Mitchel typically hits the streets after the rain has stopped to take advantage of the puddles. The process – using reflections to creatively shoot a small yet distinctive Dutch town – produces a look that I now find instantly recognisable.
Come see how Mitchel is carving his own niche and how he hopes to get his work into people’s hands and not just onto their screens.
This guest post features a set of images taken by Patrick Schoenmakers in Shanghai.
Capturing different sides of life in the city, it’s a varied and sometimes atmospheric collection that I’m very happy to share with you. There are images here I wish I could call my own.
Come take a look, and remember to give Patrick some nice comments at the bottom if you think he deserves some.
