General Note: We’re trying a new approach for the SPOW as of the new year to encourage more Lebanese street photographers to take part. We’ll be choosing two street photographs each week for the SPOW– one from an International street photographer and one from a Lebanese one. Feel free to let us know your feedback on whether we should continue with this approach. Thank you!
Ringing in 2013 are our first SPOW entries for the theme “The S-Curve”. While similar to the “Rule of Thirds” as a photographic principle for composing a shot, the s-curve is not as easy to work with beyond the obvious cliches. We didn’t get as many entries as we would’ve expected for this one (proving it was somewhat a challenge to apply on the streets), there were some interesting entries shared.
Check out two shots for this theme that really stood out for us below, noting that we liked how each photographer took their own approach to showing the S-Curve in their shots. Even seeing both shots together yields an interesting contrast.
What do you think of the shots? Share your thoughts with us and let us know your favorites from the theme album here.
