Street photography is a contemporary term for a style of photography hugely popular right now; is not necessarily commissioned but has a huge impact on social media and personal folio work.
“This recognition, in real life, of a rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation, being a simultaneous coalition – an organic coordination of visual elements.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson
“If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” – Robert Capa
Street photography is the art of being there, go outside and confront the action, ‘Get close and get a Leica’ was the best quote/advice I ever heard. Work with a 50mm lens, you have to interact and and you cannot hide.
