As some of you may know the first workshop based on Street Photographer’s Toolbox, will take place in Berlin in June.

It is going to be very different from what you normally see in workshops about street photography. You are going to get hooked on of new way of reading and making street photos. You will add substantially to your shooting toolbox.

As one of many things we are going to deal with is Below The Line Photography. Amazing capacities that are part of your innate mindset and that go to work whenever you open your eyes. Using gestalt factors in your photography is what you want to be able to. That is one way to make Itching Images, which is what street photography is all about. As opposed to mere street documentation.

No, for this workshop you don’t need a flash or fast running shoes. But you got to bring you head.

Here, then, comes the first open question to followers of Street Photographer’s Toolbox.

Of the gestalt factors you already know: Which of the factor(s) would you say that this photograph could be an example of?

Give it a go and let’s hear your answer as a comment to this post.

Take your time. Gestalt factors was described for the first time close to 100 years ago. But you might consider speeding that progress up a bit. Give it a go today.

Good luck with it.

Have a good day as well.
