Just because you shot it in the street...JUST BECAUSE YOU SHOT IT IN THE STREET IT DOESN'T MAKE IT "STREET PHOTOGRAPHY"Street Photography is a largely misunderstood and misinterpreted photography genre http://myraincheck.deviantart.com/art/Statistics-on-Street-Photography-371453155 .So, let's try to kill the most common misunderstandings:Street photography is not photography of (empty) streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street.Street photography most definitely is not photography of your All Stars shoes in the street, it is not photography of your cat, or of graffiti or 'street art' (that's another genre of photography), it is not photography of your friends or family on trip.Let's see some attempts to define street photography:"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the stream of everyday life" (from 'Street photography Now')." For the most part, however, the photographers discussed in these pages have tried to work without being noti
Street and neighborhoodSometimes deciding if a photo fits Street category or not can be really quibbling. Categories mean nothing outside this place (or other art sites) and mean nothing about the value or quality of an image. Though they are useful to make it easier to see, discover, find street images. I hope that these few lines will be able to clear some of the most common doubts in submitting to street category, and would spare you flipping a coin before submitting. So let's try to set some limits to street photography, even knowing that the edges between street photography and other neighbors genres of photography will ALWAYS be thin, vague, and often subjective.ENVIROMENTAL PORTRAIT, SPONTANEOUS PORTRAIT OR STREET?What is the difference between enviromental portrait or spontaneous portrait and street photography?A street photograph is not posed. If the portrait is posed it is not street (whoa I made a syllogism).A street photograph needs a background. A NOT vague or accidental backgrou

Street DDs - June 2013Photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them (Elliot Erwitt):iconZiaulKareem::iconjabala::iconharmonist::iconcahilus::iconeschultz::iconadamus-hubert::iconpavboq::iconY4why::iconStamatisGR::iconDawnieH83::iconVermontster:Don't Let This Happen To You by Vermontster:iconsgaze::iconBagigi::iconIFedorovskaya:Birds on the Roof by IFedorovskaya:iconTreamus:Mimic by Treamus:iconNunoCanha:24042014F7.11/20 by NunoCanha:iconxbastex:Different types of weapons by xbastex:iconDougNZ
Back to the Future. Or Not.This article was written by Anja :iconikarisou: and describes her personal journey from film to digital and back to film, plus a few interesting thoughts on the reasons behind it...I was born before the digital era began and grew up with film. The first CCD chip had already been invented back in 1969/70, but it would be years before the first consumer digital cameras would be launched on the market. So photography for me always meant film - either slide or negative film - and my first steps into photography were made with a film camera (a Kodak Ektra 90 camera that took 110 film).But eventually digital took over and I bought my first digital SLR. Digital seemed more convenient, quicker, easier, it was the new thing. I stopped using my film gear, everything had become digital and I enjoyed it. I also learned a lot. But as time passed, my photographic journey took unexpected turns. My photography changed. I got hooked on street photography. My DSLR was not the perfec
The Streettog: An Unexpected Journey“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.” (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, )Taking a successful street photo, a photo that is able to strike, surprise, trigger an emotional response is not easy. You have to be looking, without really knowing for what.You have to be looking for the unexpected.You have to be alert, focused, intuitive, to foresee what could be a potential good street photo."Street Photography may be the single most difficult photographic genre. It is a fierce challenge: to condense from the chaos of reality something visually valid and psychologically revealing about both the subject, the viewer and perhaps the photographer into a rectangle in a fraction of a second. The editing process can be downright heartbreaking: so many frames, so few photographs". (Richard Bram)"When shooting, I don't know precisely what I'm looking f

Inside the mind of a Street PhotographerWhat is a street photographer thinking while taking photos?f8? f11? f16?Is that 10 feet away?Zone focus or hyper focus, that's the questionAperture priority or shutter priority?Look at that juxtaposition!Look at that gorgeous a**! got to move closer! Oh my god! she saw me and now she poses like a model!Why is he winking at me? When I told my girlfriend that the ideal length is 35mm, she stared at me and said "oh my god! this is TOO short!"Great light! 100 ISO, f16, 1/125 sec.FFS, it's getting dark and my ISO are so poor!Oh-oh is that guy looking at me?Dammit if only that man would move just a half step...there! stop! freeze!Why do the most amazing scenes ALWAYS happen when my battery is dead?Dammit I need a dog passing there. Where are the dogs when you need them?Come on, move out of my frame you idiot!Look at that symmetry!Stop stop stop! please please please stay still a second!Now? Now! Too lateGod, my feet a

"Street": The origins - Defining StreetStreet Photography: The Origins As we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks.Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well.What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.Seriously now:Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. Whi
Street, children, is a state of mindStreet, children, is a state of mind: what defines street photography is not the subject, but the 'forma mentis' of the photographer.Street photography is a way to look at the ordinary and see the unusual in it, to look at everyday situations and find a decisive moment in them, to look at candid happenings and see iconic interactions between people and surroundings in them.The iN-PUBLiC | Manifesto, one of the most representative sites about street photography in the world, states that "all the photographers featured there have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday life and to capture the moment".The subject of a street photo is not necessarily interesting, unusual, unseen in itself, but its strenght comes from the NARRATIVE CONSTRUCTION that the photographer is able to create around the subject. The way the photographer presents it, his original point of view, his capacity to take subjects out of context and juxtapose unrel
