Ming Thein | Photographer
reframing the world one picture at a time
Workers. Leica D-Lux 5
Any guesses as to which famous photographer’s style I’m emulating here? MT
Damn, I just realized I put the answer up on flickr haha. Oh well, if you *still* think it looks like that, then my job here is done…
it’s a good interpretation. i wasn’t sure in the beginning as Salgado’s are quite (labor) intensive.
Less so with digital, especially if you know your way around photoshop and have a good tablet…
I was going to say that Japanese dude who likes to take photos from above. However, his photos are much brighter. Yours is quite dark and moody.
Nice one. The texture of the mud and the bloke on the bottom right make the shot for me. I’ve struggled with taking pictures that have too many elements in them, mine just end up looking like a confused mess of distractions. I really admire detailed, well balanced shots like these.
Thanks! There’s too much…too little…and balance, which I suppose comes through experience.
I love this series posted in your Flickr yeah, i go to construction site alot but never see the artistic merits… till now
Thanks – well, I’d imagine your job takes you there. Maybe next time I’m in Singapore (or you’re in KL) you can get us site access and we can do a quick shoot…
