Key Aspects of Street Photography
3 months ago

2014 will be the year when I take more photos. And after quite some years I know what I like (e.g. architecture, candid portraits, machinery, macro, wildlife - birds and bugs). But there's more to explore, and some subject types still make me ponder - e.g. I never used to 'get' black and white until I asked some questions here and looked at examples - and now I'm experimenting and producing photos that I like (maybe not what others prefer). Strangely enough the breakthrough was buying Silver Efex Pro - with so many presets and adjustments I've had great fun creating the effect I like.

So my next personal challenge is 'street photography'. I think I know what it means to others but I've never practiced. I've looked at some examples online but I'm still a little lost. Maybe I'm a bit shy of snapping away in the street, I certainly lack experience, and am not sure what I'm hoping to capture (yet).

Therefore I would appreciate some beginner street photography hints and then I'll go out and practice.

I will either use my Fuji X100 or my favourite camera which is (don't laugh now) a well used second hand Canon 5D with a 40mm pancake lens. Or a Nikon V1 with 50mm lens.

Thanks for reading this and I look forward to the responses.
