Street photography is an art. It is the work of imagination. The best thing about street photography is that it is possible for the final viewer of a print to see more than the original photographer. One of the great things about a city is that more things are happening, even within a small neighborhood, at any moment than any human can comprehend. Photography allows us to freeze one of those moments and study all of the small dramas that were taking place. For more information visit here: http://www.printyourcanvas.com
- Are you an artist? Or are you simply documenting?
- Are you a voyeur or participant?
- Do you visualise in B&W or in colour?
- Do you shoot in a straightforward fashion or play with complex juxtaposition?
- Do you like multiple or singular human elements in your street image?
- How do you view the streets and what is your interpretation?
- Are you looking to pass on information or are you looking to please in terms of photographic aesthetics?
- Are you shooting with a theme/project in mind?
Or you can be like me and just shooting whatever you fancy.
I have high regard and respect for those who venture to street photography. I tried, but could not take any good picture. I had walked Petaling Street for 3 conservative evenings with my camera on hand and did not even take one good picture.
