Cinematic Photography Experiment

Being very new to the world of photography I am always reading, researching and studying photos of artists (Yes, photographers are artists) work I admire. My genre of choice is Street Photography for many reasons but mainly for the spontaneity of the shot. No two shots are ever the same out there on the street.

That being said, I have come to really like the “Cinematic Photography” style. This particular style seems to capture the mood so much better than a normal Cropped/Processed shot. The wide cinematic feel with letterbox header/footer is as if you stopped a movie in mid stream. Two great examples are the photographs of Jeff Krol and James Yeung.

Here are a few of my first attempts:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Eerie

The women’s prison in Hillsborough County was the only “faith-based” women’s prison in Florida with a low recidivism rate of only 6%. Nevertheless, due to budget cuts the doors were officially closed in 2012. I wonder who were it’s inmates, where are they now…
It sits desolate and eerie yet the lights are still on.
