  1. This is a great set of photos Josh – I really like them. They have a continuity, although different from your VSCO b/w images. For me, they feel more engaged or immersed. I know you don’t care for these questions, but what app & filter did you use? Thanks man.

    1. No problem of course! I used VSCO still. I think the filter is one of the normal ones that comes with the app. You could probably find it if you skim through. Can’t remember off the top of my head. I think it may be G3?

      Thanks for the compliment as well 😉

  2. Oh man, i’m so tired, while at the bus stop i took a photo of a lady with my phone and this other lady was freaked out “does she know you are taking the photo” so she tells the other lady in a way that makes me look scary. I say, “yes, i took a photo of you, the street, the bus etc” and she walks off … i don’t bother trying to explain that the light hitting my eyes, the light in the lens in this public space – does it belong to someone – if i don’t misuse it harmfully do you care? Still, bummer. Reminds me of being a musician – there is always something shitty do deal with. Take bad with the good.

    1. Hm, I have never had much of a problem. I’m pretty open about what I’m doing. In Korea you can’t silence your shutter so people always know I’m taking a photo. I usually just explain they looked interesting and show them the photo. Compliments go a long way. I’ll usually start with something like “I like that shirt!” They then usually think I took the photo to remember that or whatever. They will usually say something like, “Oh, really?? Thanks!” People usually get nervous when they are “caught” and that makes them look more guilty of wrongdoing. I am caught literally every time, haha. People sometimes don’t like it but usually they think I didn’t do a good job of making them look good. And this isn’t my way of doing things only here where I’m a foreigner.. I do the same thing wherever I shoot. Toronto, Montreal, New York, Tokyo, Europe. Anyway, don’t worry too much about it!

      1. Normally i’m either very open or very stealthy, invisible. Just the way the angle was … the situation caught me off guard and i was already in a bummer of a day. Anyway, your shots done while travelling resonate – i often do similar thing – just turns out that way.

  3. Great insights here Josh. I don’t use my phone for taking photos much these days. Just had a quick flick through my gallery and found one decent photo so you’ve done well to find all of these nice shots you took without really thinking about it. I have to be much more concious when I shoot, otherwise I’ll just end up deleting 95% of what I shoot.

  4. Hi Josh , ive been reading your blog for about six months now after a link on Eric Kims blog … Boy have you guys inspired me !!! No longer weighed down with thoughts of what gear and lenses to carry its now either my phone or my trusty X100t … Dont feel guilty about using my ipad and vsco to edit anymore either ! It was my dirty secret that i didnt use ‘proper’ editing software 🙂 now i feel free !!!! Thank you !!! :))

    1. haha Neil, good to hear. Editing on my phone has been something I’ve done for a while. Basically since Snapseed originally came out for the iPhone. Anyway, keep on shooting and I’ll check your blog.

  5. “Photographer in my soul” (in Seoul, heh) – there are some great pictures here, the slightly muted colours really work well for the urban environment.

  6. Its always refreshing to find old photographs, even from other people. When I visit home I usually dig through old prints and it helps me re-evaluate what/how I shoot, nice to see another perspective on it and learn some korean haha, thanks.

  7. This is great – truly. Love the raw images and truth behind them. When we’re not thinking so much, our true nature explodes, and it can be beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I really like this colour palette! My eyes get numbed-out by the bazillion typical, saturated, colour-corrected shots on the web. This is refreshing.
    I also like that you’re close to people, so that subjects are a large enough part of the compositions.
    Encore!
