When we go out shooting street photography in workshops or photo tours I always like to start with composition. To find a background that has appeal. And there are many possibilities. It is too easy to want to move quickly in this fast paced city. I like to find either shadows or light, street art or repetitive patterns or even advertisements as a background AND then wait for people to come into the frame. Perhaps we could call it slow photography. To take your time and wait for the shot. I always tailor tour and workshops to the interests of each individual to help them find and achieve those things. To find your style.
