Are you thinking of hitting the pavement to photograph street scenes? It’s a great way to expand the ways in which you see the world around you. Finding the extraordinary in everyday life, or as one friend put it, “seeing That Which Is Not Seen,” can be exciting, highly rewarding… and downright intimidating.
That’s why we enjoyed the down-to-earth advice in a recent post over at Digital Photography School. Eric Kim’s “10 Tips for the Aspiring Street Photographer” cuts right to the chase. Some favorites: “Disregard what other people think of you,” “Be respectful,” and most importantly of all, “Just do it.”
Be sure to read the extensive reader comments, too, which offer more perspective as well as a few gotchas… remember, street photography is not without risks! But with some common sense and a little courage, and these street photography tips, you’ll do just fine.
