Does the city life interest you? Do you wish to learn how to capture the decisive moment? Are you interested in the crowds, the everyday person walking down the street? Then stick around this page for a while, I’ve got some tips to share with you to help you make the best out of street photography.
Street photography has been very popular for a while now and a lot of photographers, from beginners to experts, aspire to master this art form. Street photography, as the name suggests, is mainly based on shooting candid shots of the city and everyday life happening around you captured through your camera lens.
There’s many technical approaches to this form as well as many “right ways” and “wrong ways”. The best tip I can give you is to practice relentlessly and with time, you’ll develop your own personal style or blend different styles together.
No. 1: Get out of your shell and be ready to experiment.
You were probably expecting me to talk about equipment and the best lenses to use first but I feel it’s much more important to talk about you and your comfort zone. Practicing street photography will force you to put yourself in public spots, you might feel a little vulnerable, and you might have lots of concerns about people’s reactions to you. One of the most important things to success in this form of photography is to let go of this and focus on the shots you’re trying to capture.
