Sun Jul 5, 2015, 2:46 PM
This month I'd like to talk about a recent Daily Deviation. It was a self suggestion, I know that the photographer won't mind me saying this and he's immensely proud of his work, that much was clear when we talked.

Colors of Ramadan by hotamr

hotamr suggested his Colours of Ramadam series to me and as soon as I saw the image I responded that the series was nice, but it looked very much like photo-manipulation. So hotamr took the time to walk me through all of the steps that he took, the lengths he went to and the hours he spent on getting the final product. I urge you to read his interview at the Phoblographer for more information. Check it out here. It was nice to be reminded of the traditional lengths that can be taken to achieve a shot rather than be walked through the history of Photoshop editing. Both do have their merits - what do you prefer?

On the topic of Self Suggestions, it's often seen as something that we should be ashamed of. I often get a lot of self suggestions with apologies in the note. Never apologise for wanting to promote your own work. As long as you believe in yourself, you should share your work and inspire others to do the same. Have faith in yourself first, and the rest will fall into place later. It helps if you share the history behind a shot, when you self-suggest, and the reasons why you think it should be a Daily Deviation. We ask for this because it helps us gain a little more insight and get to know you as a photographer - just like I did with hotamr.

Street Photography

hosagu has been on DeviantArt for over four years and in that time has been a strong supporter of Street Photography, advocating for the genre time and time again. He has, more recently, become the Street Photography Community Volunteer and this article will hopefully give you a bit more insight into how he works, what inspires him and what Street Photography means to him. Houman is from New Caledonia and describes himself as a modest but passionate photographer on an eternal learning curve...


Just Id-ing... by hosagu


Tell us a bit about yourself, where you are from and how you got started with Street Photography...


I'm from Lyon in France and I'm thirty-seven years old. I have a son and have been married for twelve years. I actually live and work in New Caledonia which is a little French island located in the Pacific Ocean north East from Australia. For work, I am a miner and have been travelling for work since 2003 in various countries across the world. photography is my passion, it's an incredible part of me that was revealed when I was just sixteen years old. My Father inspired me when he began taking photos with an Analog camera, photos which he painted from.

Swallowing Bubble by hosagu
Why Street Photography? I wanted to capture instant moments, emotion and people. I wanted to shoot wider than nature and objects offered me.

The Kit...


I use all of the below, I used to have a Canon 400D and then moved to a 5D Mark II.
:bulletblack: Analog Leica M5 with a lens - Summicron 50mm f/2.
:bulletblack: Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon lens 50mm f1.4 and a 70 - 300mm lens.
:bulletblack: Fujifilm X100T - I just got this and can't wait to get started!


Oh honey, it was not a bad shot! by hosagu


What advice would you give to someone starting out with Street Photography?


Observe. Based on your mood and your heart, be humble. Have fun. Look at the people around you, at the places, at the tiny magical moments which happen around us at every corner on every street. Go to a Cafe with your camera in hand and whilst sitting, look at everything around you. Beauty is very subjective but I believe that it's everywhere. You have to shoot and shoot and shoot again to improve your techniques - let your inner emotions bloom whilst photographing.

Au Cafe des Jours Heureux... by hosagu

Do you find yourself shy or self conscious when shooting on the Street? How do you overcome these feelings?



I was when I first started out, I confess that I missed billions of occasions where I could have captured something amazing but didn't due to feeling shy. It's a human feeling. I'm still self conscious but happy. To me, a good shot has to be found sometimes by moving around the subject. Trying and looking from different angles and points of view. I do it frankly for sure, but I smile. I look at people and they quite often send the smile back and forget all about me.

dark light by hosagu

How else do you interact with people when shooting?



I have a trend not to interact. I like to be invisble. I like to be an observer who will not disrupt what is happening in front of my eyes. I guess I'm afraid that my interaction would ruin a magical moment. I'm just the guy who will shoot and capture the moment. This particular shot below is important to me...

The kid blowing the wind by hosagu

When I took this, I wasn't yet a Father. I shot it in Marseille and I remember it as being a time of my life where a lot of things were giving me headaches. Seeing children running, laughing and being free was a sort of therapy to me. I took lots of shots that afternoon and this was amongst them. The bedsheets with things written on them were an art exhibition and it was funny to see the children playing amongst them.


Smoking Duo by hosagu

Have you ever had the opportunity to photograph some journalstic events?



I have been travelling the past twelve years and haven't been particularly active in the social and political aspects of my country. I have lived through some incredible changes though, such as the two presidents being in power in the Côte d'Ivoire, or the time I was in Mali before the French Attack or in Guinea when the dictator died after twenty four years in power. I remember being part of the Je Suis Charlie walks for freedom in New Caledonia...

New Caledonia 2015 Walk for Freedom - IV by hosagu

Where do you draw your inspiration and enthusiasm from?



From my mood, feelings or sometimes both. My son inspires me and I have a lot of inspiration from other deviants here... MARX77, ZiaulKareem, JACAC, Vermontster, Batsceba, niklin1, pigarot, lightdrafter, DougNZ, sandas04, noahsamuelmosko, Canankk, SUDOR, djailledie, sagi-k, Elerko, Sanchez-B, marius1956, BautistaNY, ezkilzon, jonniedee, Ulprus, IFedorovskaya, xbastex... DeviantArt remains a place where I can involve myself in supporting the community through sharing art, discussing, debating, promoting and featuring. I like to say what I think and feel, here I can do that. I also live by some very important quotes....

"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst."
-(Cartier-Bresson)

"Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
-(E. Erwitt)

"Infrared photography is style that predominantly uses the infrared portion of the light spectrum to create images on photographic film or digital sensors."

I came to deviantART looking for an outlet to share my literature work. Imagine my surprise when I look back now and find myself, eight years later, a Photography Community Volunteer and an avid Photographer. In fact, I've just spent a year taking a handful of Photos every day as part of the 365 challenge. If you want to talk to me about motivation, inspiration, finding things to Photograph and general 'sticking at stuff' then do please give me a shout!

I started off three years ago as the Abstract and Surreal Photography CV, I then took on Conceptual as well and now I cover General Photography along with 3wyl. My every day work, like so many of us here, is unrelated to Art almost completely.

I'm about to embark on a career as a Care Manager for my local council. I just finished studying a degree in Social Policy and Criminology and I'm about to move into my first house with TouchedD! In my spare time (whenever that is) I like to explore the world with TouchedD, poke dead things with a stick and take my dog who has naughty feet, for walkies.

Daily Deviation Guidelines


Photobucket


I'm one of two General Photography CVs!



  • Mrs-Durden and I only take Photography suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps). We also cannot feature anything from a gallery that already has CV looking after it. Check out communityrelations for the latest list.
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest


Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.
I try and reply to all suggestions made.

I'm very grateful for the feature yesterday, my dear friend.
It meant so much, as I never had the chance to show the finished photos to Zé and I'll be in infinite debt. Thank you for being so awesome, K.
