794 – Street Photography

I’m reading the street photography workshop. Chapter three is quite intriguing. It deals with projects. Professional Street photographers prefer projects because it means they have a subject and are more likely to take successful pictures that people who just shoot randomly.

I must admit, I found this to be something of a revelation, it seems obvious but why has this never occurred to me? I have I think always thought that a street photographer relied upon getting that lucky picture. really, frustrating, I have taken what I class as a quite a good street photo, taken in London, probably 15 or more years ago. That’s a stunningly good success rate isn’t it? What’s even more frustrating is I can’t find it. When I do find it, I’ll come back to this post and include it.

I go for my morning walk and there are very few people about until I get to the ferry terminal, I often so no people. But, I can still look for shapes, shadow and lighting. What is prone to change?

I went for a lunchtime walk. I didn’t take any pictures down the high street, but, I did pay a lot of attention to the people on the street. The workshop book doesn’t say that all pictures of “normal” people are bad street photography, but it’s really worth looking for some element that tells a story or makes it special.

I have to confess that I were of a mind to take pictures of a stranger I found nothing to inspire me. Oh Dear, that’s not good is it? The observation exercise is something I think I will repeat. You never know how that will develop.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
