It’s fun to work with repetitive patterns in street photography compositions especially when the person that you capture in the frame somehow matches the background. This photo was taken during a street photography workshop in Midtown Manhattan. We spent awhile hanging out and shooting here. There are so many methods and styles for capturing street photography and this is just one of the styles that we work with during a street photography workshop.
Human interaction is one of the many things that you can capture in street photography. Sometimes there is something in the interaction that you don’t typically see. But this is New York City! In this photo you can see two men of very different ethnic and religious backgrounds! This photo was taken during a street photography workshop in Harlem. I also do private photo tours in Harlem based on street photography.
In street photography I work with the weather conditions whatever they are. Rain or shine. Of course, it’s fabulous to work with the afternoon light in the autumn. Learning to take advantage of all kinds of weather conditions and light, is something we always focus on in my street photography workshops. You don’t have to be a fair weather photographer.
This is another photo that I took during a street photography workshop in Chelsea. We always have a good time shooting and sometimes we meet people on the streets that ask us to take their photo! If shooting street photography isn’t fun, I probably wouldn’t do it.
Shadows are one of my favorite things to capture. The afternoon sun in the autumn is amazing and shadows lend an added touch to photos. This photo was taken during a recent street photography workshop in Chelsea. We always work with available light and any of the many aspects that create interest in a composition no matter the weather. You can see more information about my workshops online.
When you look at a photo it’s merely a second in time. It’s still. Motionless. But there are a few ways to trick the mind of the viewer. One of them is the classic foot up position that gives the sense of movement. This is one of the many things that we work on in street photography workshops and private photo tours. You can find more information on my website.
Sometimes shooting ordinary things can be interesting. Shooting the obvious. There are 2 people and a garbage bin. They almost create a triangle. Also there’s the reflection as well. Some people who take my workshops and private tours say that I teach them how to see things.
