How???

Page 40: Street Photography

Take a lot of pictures

Learn how to use your camera. Learn the basic rules of photography , then learn how and when to discard them. Even if you’re not shooting, always

be looking.

Page 41: Street Photography

Don’t worry about how good your camera is…

“The best camera is the oneyou have with you.” A better camera

doesn't take better pictures.

Page 42: Street Photography

Light gear & open mind

One camera, one small bag.

Look like a person, not a photographer.

Page 43: Street Photography

Move your body, not your lens

Keep an open eye and walk where your eye takes you.

Do not use a long lens. •Long lenses separate you from people,

are a crutch from getting you to interact, and will make you feel sneaky.

Page 44: Street Photography

TEACHER NOTES:

•Homeless people are “cliché” for street photographers

•USE APERTURE PRIORITY

•Find the perfect lighting

•Hip-shots are key

•Wait on a corner

•ALWAYS ask permission unless you are doing a hip shot

•Pretend to photograph someone else

Page 45: Street Photography

Wander and find interactions

Choose a place where people interact and with activity so as to capture the unexpected.

The best moments in life are usually those that often go unnoticed and with nothing to show for

them, but that can easily change.
