In the style of: Bert Hardy

UPDATE: Please take time before Saturday to research Bert Hardy's images.  If you are rushed for time, at least look at the 10 images on Getty here.

---

The photographer Bert Hardy would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year. Though a gifted war photographer, Hardy's spontaneous and sharp images of people in everyday situations were more characteristic of his work. An exhibition of his images is at the Photographers' Gallery in London from 4 April to 23 May.

 

Your challenge is to replicate the style of Bert Hardy, capturing people in everyday situations, in black & white. Take some time to look through Hardy's work online to understand his composition styles etc. Please submit NO MORE THAN 5 images. For every image you submit, please comment on at least one other image, no matter if you think you are qualified to comment or not. This group is about sharing and learning from each other. I was asked last time about "how to comment properly". A good structure for comments was given to me by a competition judge: Colour/Tone, Light, Action, Pattern/Balance/Composition.

 

We will start in Sham Shui Po at Exit A2. Please arrive on time. We will finish at Mes Amis on the 13th floor of Langham Place (Mongkok station Exit C3) for a social drink and image sharing. (See http://www.langhampla... and also http://www.langhampla....
