Join Steve Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Critique of a series of the beverage bottles in Havana, part of Photo Critique of the Week.
- Finding that picture, shooting it…and then working it to make it better…is a basic philosophy of mine when I'm shooting…on the street.…Hi I'm Steve Simon, the passionate photographer…and welcome to another edition of…photo critique of the week.…This week we're going to look at a couple of examples…from Havana, Cuba…which is one of my favorite destinations to photograph.…And the first image that I wanted to show to…kind of tell you about that philosophy…in a little more depth…is of this soft drink vendor on the streets of Old Havana.…
Even for the locals that I was talking to…they say that this is not so much of a common sight…and a little bit of a throwback to back in the day…when these guys with their colored bottles…would be everywhere in the city.…Photographically because of the colors I thought…yeah this is definitely worth shooting.…As you can see that's what I did.…I started shooting…and I kept changing my composition a little bit.…It evolved.…Different people were also making themselves visible…in the scene while I'm shooting…
