Photographer Visualizes Hearing Loss as Artistically Blurred Street Photography
Viewing his photos as paintings, Chilean photographer Eduardo Asenjo Matus has a unique technique for capturing the spirit of his environment. Using a neutral density filter, he employs long exposures to focus in on his primary subject, leaving the rest in an artistic blur. The former graphic design and architecture student started this series, The Sound of Silence, in 2015 as a way to reflect his own emotions.

Long Exposure Street Photography
by Eduardo Asenjo Matus
I started playing as a little girl with my dad’s camera and then upgraded to my own Reflex in the ’90s. For a couple of years, I’ve been contributing in a few Facebook groups, especially in Black & White, where I met some friends like Piero Polimeni and Alessandro Scendoni who, with their technical suggestions, have made the game turn into a real passion. I like all kinds of photography, but more particularly I prefer portraiture. I have started believing that photography is now a part of me, capable of transmitting emotions and getting me out of everyday stress. This hobby has taken my heart.
Whether made with an analog camera, a digital device or even a phone, this publication gathers 100 inspiring street photographs from around the world and places them together in one neat, easily readable volume.
Selection by David Gibson, review by Sean Sheehan
David Gibson, the curator (and author) of the newly published volume 100 Great Street Photographs, provides us with a broad and helpful overview of the street photographers working in the field today. He calls them the “Internet generation” and accordingly provides a website, Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr and/or Instagram address for each; he notes too how the vast majority of the photographs were made in the last five years.

Place your DSLR on a tripod, adjust the lens to get the best possible composition, get the focus right, choose appropriate ISO setting, change shutter speed and aperture, go to timer mode and select five seconds, and then click. Being a photographer, these are things I never get tired of. It’s fun being a shutterbug, as you might also agree if you are fond of clicking as well. The ever changing world always throws perfect compositions at us, one of the reasons we never get tired of this hobby whether you are into fashion photography, or wildlife shooting, or one who just loves to roam around your city and click.

Michael Ernest Sweet’s Free Street Photography Bible Create original, thought-provoking street photographs.
How do stay unique in a genre that’s seen everything?
I’m sure you’ve seen the same sort of street photographs that I have: black-and-white photos of people crossing a street. Black-and-white photos of the homeless. Black-and-white photos of somebody screaming. How do you find something unique?
Well, this ebook answers that question bluntly. You can’t. Yeah, you can try, but what happens on the street happens everywhere, at all times. Sure, you can create new perspectives and unique ways of seeing, but you’re stuck with the same human elements.
What’s inside this eBook?
Well, So how do you create original work? That’s the question this “bible” directs you to. Yes, you study. You practice. You find your voice. And you shoot. But what makes a street photographer a real bonafide street photographer?
Michael Ernest Sweet, a serious street photographer and writer (you can read his stuff on Huffington Post), crammed everything he knows into this ebook. And you’ll learn it all from him. It’s his bible. And it’s free for all you crazy talented street photographers.
