STREET-41 is now on!!

posted January 27th, 2018
Great thanks to Jackie @jackies365 for hosting the previous challenge (Street-40) and for all who contributed and voted. I am very happy that my photo got all these votes.

No, let’s look towards STREET-41

“street photographers use the general public and public spaces (not only street...) as their subject matter. Street photography is closely tied to the spontaneous and unpredictable. It requires more improvisation and intuition to execute than many other types of photography.

Street photography focuses on people (not posing), in the street or in any public place (train station, museum, parks, waiting room, etc). If not the person directly, the subject could be the person’s shadow or even yourself. To find out more about street photography here are some helpful resources:

More can be read about the legality and appropriate behaviour relating to taking photographs of people in public places here:

For more reference, I would like to put the link to some of my preferred street photographs:
Sergio Larrain:

Bruno Barbey:

Nikos Economopoulor:

For this street-41, i will pay some attention to the background (and lessons from one of my first photo workshop: use CLEAN BACKGROUND)

This competition will run from January 27, 2019 until February 12, 2018 and I will make sure to allow for differences in time zones. Photos must be taken between those dates.

Please tag your photos street-41

Hi new to street photography.
I don't think this example applies since here what is clean is the foreground, right? @vincent24)

hi Adi, this applies fully for street photography challenge, it is a very nice silhouette, and the background is a bit busy but the contrast with the silouhete is so stron, that it doesn’t really disturb,
... and rules are there to be broken!! Thanks for joining this challenge!
