Create Your Own Style in Street Photography

Street photography has grown and rebelled against dogmas. It’s time for your own style.

Certainly the answers could be diverse, different from one to another.

One of the most general reasons is its practicality. Street photography is easy to do. We just go out and interact with public spaces around us. All the places offer different stories and interactions making the street photography not expensive. Wo don’t need to go far away by plane to find its subjects, and also don’t need to buy expensive photography equipments.

I myself knew street photography because of my curiosity and I wanted to try something new. It was the beginning before I then explored and felt that there was something interesting in the genre.

10 Tips for Compelling Street Photography

10 Tips for Compelling Street Photography
by Mike Boening, Olympus Trailblazer

MikeBoening02aStreet photography is one of the most exciting forms of photography because all you need to do is go for a “walk.” Actually, it may not be a simple as that but documenting everyday life can get easier as you explore and practice this exciting genre of photography. Capturing that decisive moment when an image becomes more than just a snapshot can happen by following a few tips.

MikeBoening02b1- Check your settings
Street photography is not always technical in nature.
At its roots it’s about emotion and the mood of an image. But, no matter what, you still have to know your camera settings. Understanding your camera is a big key into forgetting about it, so you can focus on the composition of the image. I try to shoot most of my street photography in “P” Mode setting my ISO on Auto with its high end being 6400. When I do this I am letting the camera think for me, while I think about the scene in the viewfinder. Now, I modify this on occasions like night shooting or if I am intentionally trying to create blur in my images, but I select the “P” Mode because it lets me focus on the emotion, which is the most important part of my creative process.

The Possibilities of Street Photography

Photographers have played with and explored street photography since the beginning of photography itself — capturing anonymous moments of beauty, grace, absurdity, sorrow, delight, outrage, and more.

Cities and towns and even small rural villages can feel like movie sets, with something always happening, always changing and with new characters walking onto the stage and interacting with each other at any moment. From simple, everyday occurrences to news events that ripple out and touch people continents apart — great street photography often brings it all together in a memorable way…
