  2. Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid (not set up, opportunist) situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches, markets and other settings. The purpose of street photography will vary from one street photographer to another. Some photographers are interested in simply and honestly documenting life as they see it, at times adding their own interpretation to the scene. Some want to make artistic photographs of available street scenes and others basically enjoy taking pictures and do it purely for the pleasure of it. Street photography revolves around taking photos of everyday life and objects in the open urban environment of streets, lanes villages and towns. It provides a visual commentary on the world around us showcasing humour, routine and daily life on the streets.

  7. Peter Funch Funch took each of these photographs two weeks at a time, found people in the frames who had something in common, and stitched the photographs together using an image editor.

  8. Masataka Nakano Japanese photographer Masataka Nakano spent 11 years shooting photographs of Tokyo devoid of people. Nakano visited ordinarily busy locations during times of low activity (i.e. major holidays), and patiently waited for just the right time to make each of his photographs.

  10. Street Photography Tips: In the Background – what’s going on behind your subject can actually ‘make’ the shot. Billboards, signs, graffiti and other visual elements can really make a statement in a shot.Dare to Go Diagonal – don’t just hold your camera horizontally – experiment with angles. Street photography is a less formal medium – make the most of it. New Angle – find ways to get up high or down low – these new perspectives on subjects that are familiar can lead to eye catching shots.Practice makes Perfect – over time and with practice your photography will improve. You’ll not only get better at technique but also spotting the things to focus upon on the street.Ready to Pounce – have your camera out and ready to shoot at all times. Things can move quickly on the street so if you’re not ready you’ll miss lots of opportunities. Revise the Revisit – street photography is not all about spontaneity – if you see a scene with potential don’t be afraid to keep going back to it until you get the shot. Frozen Motion – the street is a place of movement – to capture it and still get sharp shots make sure your shutter speed is fast enough. 1/125 or more with an ISO of 400 is recommended as a base. I t can also be fun to experiment with slower shutter speeds on the street – capture the movement as blur. Expect the Expected – people can be suspicious of street photographers so shoot in places where people expect to see people doing photography. Smile, be polite and be willing to delete images if people protest. Location, Location, Location – really this is what it is all about. Choose places where people interact with one another and times when they are present. Focusing-Key to street photography is focusing, not only sharpness but depth of focus or depth of field. More than other types of photography, excluding landscape, you need as much of the image in focus. Set you aperture to f11 or smaller and manually focus if necessary. The great thing about street photography is reviewing your images later and finding little scenes within scenes. If you have a good enough depth of focus you’ll find many smaller objects you hadn’t noticed while shooting.

  11. Photographing people Photographing strangers is one of the most challenging aspects of street photography. Most frequently street photographers aim for candid shots; pictures taken without the subject's knowledge Some photographers choose to secretly photograph people. They will typically take pictures using automatic compact cameras or even telephoto lenses so they can photograph their subjects from a "safe distance". Other street photographers believe that sneaking on people is morally wrong and therefore should be avoided. They would rather ask for permission before taking pictures of strangers, to meet and learn something about the people they are photographing. Some street photographers opt for the "fast shooter" method which consists of making quick snaps without attempting to hide or be unseen. This method can produce candid photos however does not make people feel uncomfortable. Most people don't get offended or annoyed just because you picked up your camera and took a picture. When you are in public and taking pictures in public and it is legitimate most people will understand that. But people get awfully suspicious and even angry if they notice you sneaking up on them like you're doing something wrong. If you point your camera at a person and follow their movement they are likely to become self conscious , or even annoyed. It is much better to compose your photograph , then keep the camera still, pointing in one direction, waiting for someone to walk into the scene. Most importantly do not put yourself in a compromising situation . Always take someone with you. Be polite and explain your intentions. Do not offend anyone and have respect for others peoples privacy.

  12. Photographic Portfolio: Street Photography Task 1: Compare and contrast Using your analysing images worksheet write an essay that compares and contrasts two images by different street photographers from the list given. Choose to compare the work of a contemporary photographer with that of an older generation. Your research should include the type of equipment used , digital or film and what inspired the photographer. Also, include as part of your essay a brief history of documentary/ street photography . Work must be word processed with the images you have chosen and presented in your digital portfolio. Task 2: Street photography Before starting this task make sure that you read the ‘street photography tips and photographing people’ worksheets. Photo shoot- choose a busy street location (a city is preferable) and explore some of the methods of taking candid shots that you have learnt about- eg shooting from the hip (make sure you are on Aperture Priority and Autofocus shooting reflected images in windows, using unusual angles. Review your shots and then produce a final series of three images to present on your Weebly page.
