Street photography in Miami’s Little Havana

Another photo I took during Little Havana’s “Viernes Culturales” was perfect as is.  Street photographers argue about this dilemma all the time — should street photography be unedited, un-retouched with no special effects. My opinion is “it depends.”  I did no retouching on this one (well….almost none.  I did remove some of the shadows on […]

Street photography in Little Havana – San Lazaro

As a street photographer in Miami, I am continually amazed at the variety of scenes I encounter on a daily basis.  Miami is truly a city split into unique and somewhat separate neighborhoods and the most well-known is Little Havana.

Street Photography in West Coconut Grove

Most street photographers know when they capture a true “gem” and two days ago I had my gem.  But to photograph this subject, I encountered the perennial problem all street photographers deal with:  ”Do I ask for permission?  Or just shoot?” I don’t think there is any right or wrong answer to that question.  It […]

Street photography in Miami – Hurricane Howard

As a street photographer, every once in a while you come across a true character.  You know, the kind of person you will always remember, someone with flair, personality.  Hurricane Howard is one of those people.  I was almost finished for the day doing street photography and was about to go get an afternoon Cuban […]
