Garry Winogrand was one of the first photographers I looked at when researching street photography, and I have also included this photographer in one of my pervious blog posts ‘TheEthics of Street Photography’ - Blog Post Response. I felt indifferent about Winogrand's approach to street photography, but have found his street photography to be the most relevant to fit into the category. Out of his photographs I have found a photograph that I was inspired by. The lighting in this photograph was what made me mostly attracted to the shot Winogrand has captured.

Photo Garry Winogrand
The photograph I have captured resembles Winogrand's photograph through the lighting. The time of day allowed me to capture this photography, the lighting was bright so I captured this photograph with the shutter speed on 1000. I used a larger aperture to let less light through the lens, this also created a silhouette effect on the people in the shot. I also noticed that the old man in the wheel chair in my shot is sitting in the same position as the man in the wheel chair in Winogrand's shot.
