Sometimes, photography (and art in general) isn’t just about capturing people, animals, or objects at their best and displaying the images where they can be perpetually admired. Street Photography is different.
There are times when photos that document everyday people and activities can have a more profound impact than shots that depict beauty alone as a theme. This, more than any other thing, is the essence of street photography.
Street photography is more complicated and nuanced than regular photography. For starters, there is no consensus as to what street photography is. And since you’ll most likely be taking these photos without the consent of your subjects, certain behavioural norms should be followed, if you don’t want to attract undue suspicion to yourself.
This article is for you if you’re interested in exploring the complex but ultimately rewarding world of street photography. Here, we’ll explain the subject in detail and include steps to help you conquer the initial trepidation and start making compelling street photographs like a champ.
