STREET PHOTOGRAPHY TUTORIAL - PART ONE



THE HUMAN SUBJECT


(article from photo4u.it - il portale italiano della fotografia translated and adapted to dA by myraincheck)

Let's close our eyes and imagine going out in the streets and looking for unusual things. What do we expect to find? People, first of all.
That's good, the HUMAN PRESENCE is a fundamental element of street photography.
If we want to use only this ingredient, we'll be able to realize a true street photo only if the person we capture will have something unusual or interesting or is doing something unusual or interesting. Otherwise we'll have a good portrait, an enviromental portrait, a wide portrait whatever, but not a street photo.

CONNECTIONS


Let's now introduce an essential ingredient in street phtography: CONNECTION
The first thing we can do is connecting two or more persons together. Similarity, opposition, symmetry, repetition of details, whatever. What matters is to HIGHLIGHT something special.

StamatisGR: When I first saw this picture I was left speechless! What are the chances? 2 pairs of men(similarity), 1 pair coming 1 going(opposition), both pairs dressed in the same way (repetition), one pair wears helmets the other is bald (similarity). The photo could be staged. But it's not! And this makes it a perfect street shot!
