Street 97 is underway

November 26th, 2022
Thanks to all who participated in the last street photography challenge and to @northy for hosting. It is a real honour to have my image chosen as favourite and I would like to thank all who took the time to view and vote on all the finalists. Now on to round 97.

Street photography is a genre that gives many people pause. It involves taking photos of strangers as they go about their daily lives. This is not easy for many, myself included, although as I persevere I am becoming less inhibited. One way around this problem is to be a stealth photographer and take photos of people surreptitiously. Whichever way you go about it, street photography can be fun and very satisfying so please give it a try.

For inspiration visit this gallery of images by one of my favourite street photographers, Vivian Maier:

Here are some links/article provided by others who've hosted before me... hopefully, they'll help you get started...

@ludwigsdiana Typically, street photography involves people because you are trying to catch a look, a gesture, a reaction, a juxtaposition. Something that tells a story about daily life. It could be possible to take a street photo without a person in it but it should tell a similar story as it would if a person was in the frame, otherwise it becomes an urban landscape which is a different genre. One thing to remember; a street photo does not need to be taken on a street or even in a city.
