Street photography is a hip name for some simple approach photography right now. Most new camera owners decide on this genre because it’s one of the easiest styles of photography to start with. Why? Mainly, you can walk down any high street and give it a go. Get a small camera and a lens or two, and you’re in business. I have even done a street photoshoot in and around the Barbican celebrating the Brutalist architecture which is all around.
Street-style photography is now so fashionable that many people on YouTube are selling courses and experiences and teaching their style of street photography. Of course, the skill here is studying the location and picking your moment to snap your image and with some great post-production, you have some interesting work to show. I know that I may get some flack here, but not saleable to agencies or production as you have the issue of rights to the images and usage.
Whilst out and about on the go sees to potential clients, I happened across the French tourists celebrating the rugby bit and had all stopped for a while to view a few street artists. I was particularly interested in the Punk hair. A throwback to the heady days of UK Punk ( not my thing, but I appreciate the music now). The guys and everyone else had a focus in the distance, and I couldn’t quite see, but for some reason,As I was capturing, I realised that the people were not intimidated by the smartphone. In fact, they even played to the device as you can see with the guy and his tongue.
