One of my favorite techniques for shooting street photography is just to stand in the middle of a busy sidewalk and wait for people to walk towards me. If you’d like to learn about different methods to shoot the street I provide regular workshops and private photo tours.
A person’s face is not necessary in street photography. In fact, sometimes it’s even better. The combination of an umbrella and few colors is a great combination in making a photo minimal. Are you looking to up your skills as a photographer? I provide both group street photography workshops and private photos tours. You can see more information on my website.
When I find an interesting background, I stop and wait for people to walk into the frame. In New York City there are always people walking into the frame. I’ve been proving private photo tours and street photography workshops for almost 9 years now. You can find more information about them online on my website.
Shadows and light are fabulous to capture. They lend a dramatic effect to a photo. When the sun is out in the morning or afternoon I search out shadows. We always work with the available light on private photo tours or street photography workshops.
If you take a photo tour or workshop with me you will likely experience my obsession with reflections. Whether they are in windows, mirrors or puddles, reflections make for fabulous street photography. You can see more information about my tours and workshops online.
Rain or shine you’ll see me on the streets shooting. That is also true of my street photography workshops and photo tours. There’s always something to shoot if you have an open mind. You can find more information on my site.
I regularly shoot in Harlem and I provide street photography workshops there a few times a year and private photo tours on a regular basis. I work with amateur to experienced photographers and beginners to street as well as those that are experienced in it. Harlem is one of the many fabulous neighborhoods in New York City to shoot. This photo was taken during a street photography workshop.
