Cyberdog Camden Market

Ami touriste, (1) Londres est la plus belle ville du monde (2) Camden est un paradis pour les photographes (3) Le temps britannique et l’architecture encouragent le noir et blanc 🙂 Cyberdog est un magasin visuellement incroyable. Les employĂ©s sont malheureusement aussi dĂ©plaisants que paranos (pour la petite histoire, Ă  l’occasion du London Street Photography Festival, 6 photographes pros ont testĂ© leur droit Ă  photographier Ă  Londres et filmĂ© leurs rencontres plus ou moins amicales). Mais la devanture vaut vraiment le dĂ©tour. Au passage, cette image foule au pied un autre mythe des gourous de la photo: l’histogramme doit ĂŞtre propre et homogènement distribuĂ© sans noir abyssal ni blanc brulĂ©. Demandez Ă  mon ami le robot s’il se prĂ©fère en tons moumous de gris !!

Cyberdog histogram in LightRoom

Oh ye fellow tourist, (1) London is the most beautiful town on the Planet (2) Camden is utter paradise for photographers and (3) British summer weather and local architecture encourage B&W 🙂 The Cyberdog shop is visually arresting. Pity the employees are as unpleasant as they are paranoid towards shutterbugs (as a matter of fact, they are not alone: during the London Street Photography Festival, 6 pros tested their ability to photograph public places in London and filmed their various encounters). The shop entrance alone is worth the trip. For the record, this image busts yet another photo guru myth “keep thy histogram clean with no blow whites or complete blacks”. Codswallop. Ask my friend the robot whether he fancies himself in dull shades of grey!!
