Assignment: City Streets
“Working in an urban area where there are plenty of people present, try to capture the busy scene in a balanced, well-composed image. You can either record a general view, or get in close to take a more intimate shot. Take advantage of colors and shapes when composing and organizing the shot.”
— from Digital Photography Masterclass by Tom Ang
This assignment was about looking for ways to compose with color and shape in an urban area with people present. The famous Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium Park is always surrounded by people. This image uses a clear blue sky to define the three spikes of buildings poking upwards like asparagus, with a huge silver melon of a sculpture stealing the show in the foreground.
