I was reviewing more photographs from the Hongdae area in Seoul, South Korea that I took back in May 2016. When it comes to street photography, I often lean towards black and white in most cases. But today, I decided to share two street photographs that I prefer in color. Let’s take a look at both of them.
I will say that the photograph could work in black and white, but I just feel it works so well with color! I prefer the color because it seems quite balanced to me. The yellow, the blue, and then you have the red lipstick and even pink on the signs in the back. I like the way it flows all together. In addition to that, I love the subjects and the rest of the general feel of this moment in time.
Here’s the second photograph:
Although there are some background elements that could be distracting like the people waiting at the crosswalk and the taxi. However, I’m still very happy with the 3 main subjects in the photograph, as well as the expressions and colors. I love the background lights and signs in the background that are so reminiscent of the Hongdae area.
