Experience The Walks of Life: Beautiful Street Photography

Street Photography is about sympathy, not hate.

Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, subways, beaches, malls, political conventions and other settings. Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment.

On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with. In the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture in Europe and North America, and elsewhere to a somewhat lesser extent. Streets portray and reflect our life, some enjoy streets on tourist desitnations, some are getting late from work, some are playing, eating, sitting, running etc that’s why today we have tried to build a concept street photography: Experience The Walks of Life.

Define Street Photography ?

Why is it so hard to define what Street Photography is about? Why do all attempts do describe this genre remain so oddly diffuse? Why is there no 25-pages-manual, something you can read and (hopefully) understand and off you go? You may be able to operate your gear well, you may have done amazing macros, table-tops, architecture-shots and even portraits, you can and should read all of the following – and yet you may not have a frigging clue afterwards, what Street Photography is about. Because it is something very personal. Because you have to leave your shell. Because you have to – in some cases – expose yourself. Because you have to love people.

Technique Tips

  1. Look behind your subjects when taking their photo
  2. Use a point-and-shoot
  3. Shoot from the hip
  • Use a wide-angle prime lens
  • Use the smallest aperture possible
  • Have at least 1/250th of a second shutter speed
  • Pre-focus
  • Shoot fully-manua
