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.

What to shoot in the streets
7 things to look for…

SP3guide11a… I firmly believe hat there’s only 3 complementary ways to develop your photography:
To go out and shoot
To learn it
To be inspired by others

Nothing beats shooting for yourself or having someone by your side. Inspiration is the second best thing and I will dare say that Inspiration is crucial for photography. Ansel Adams got inspired by a book given to him while sick, Henri Cartier Bresson picked up a magazine and found one image that inspired him to take on photography seriously. You can go ahead a find the photographers to be inspired from or they can come to you…

The A-Z guide to street photography

The dA-Zed guide to street photography
The ultimate A-Z guide to street photography, inspired by Nokia’s new camera-phone

A is for Atget

B is for Bill Cunningham
Anna Wintour says she gets dressed for Bill Cunningham, the legendary 84-year old photographer who was shooting New York street style decades before fashion bloggers laid claim to the practice. Since he first caught Greta Garbo on film by chance in the late 1970s, Cunningham has spent his whole life consistently capturing the world’s most glamorous for The New York Times.

billcunninghamC is for Cartier-Bresson and the candid photograph
The founding father of photojournalism, Magnum Photos, and generally one of the greatest photographers in the history of the trade, Henri Cartier-Bresson articulated the idea of The Decisive Moment in 1952 – a central tenet of candid photography and thus one of the most important principles in street photography.

henricartierbressonL is for LIFE Magazine
Few magazines have helped spread photographic culture like LIFE Magazine, which commissioned and circulated some of history’s most iconic images, including Robert Capa’s D-Day images, Cartier-Bresson’s tour of China and Gerda Taro’s dispatches from the Spanish Civil War.

robertcapaT is for The Americans…
…that seminal work by Robert Frank, for which he road tripped back and forth across the United States for two years, taking more than 28,000 pictures of American life in all its shapes and forms. Along the way he met Jack Kerouac, who contributed the introduction to the original US edition.

robertfrankY is for Young love
Young children playing in the streets may be one of street photography’s most-depicted subjects. William Klein’s gun-pointing boys, Helen Levitt’s candids of curious children and Diane Arbus’ freak portraits of weird-looking kids are only a few of the most famous images exemplifying the genre’s romance with the spirit of youth.
