Street photography is an interesting genre of photography. In some ways it sees quite simple – all you need is a camera lens and your own two feet to do it. Yet in other ways, it can be quite hard and complicated.
- How can you keep moving subjects in sharp focus?
- Do you even want to do that?
- How do you approach people to photograph them?
- What if you get in trouble?
- Do you need a model or another kind of release?
Weekly Photography Challenge – Street Photography
If this is something you’ve struggled with, here are some dPS articles to help you out.
Two key tips I will give you myself are – find good light and shoot there AND find a good or interesting background and wait for a subject to enter your frame.
Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer, upload them to your favorite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

You can also share your images on the dPS Facebook group as the challenge is posted there each week as well.
