Unlike it’s name suggests, street photography does not have to actually include a street. A better name might be everyday human life photography, but let’s be honest, that takes too long to say. Street photography is quite simply capturing candid life out in the world, rather than using posed models or objects. Street photography can often tell a powerful story. This week, your challenge is to get out there and capture it!

 

Tips and Tuts for this week:

  • Take lots of shots! The beauty of digital photography is that you have just about an infinite amount of space to store your photos. Sometimes, you need to take a couple hundred photos to find “the one”!
  •  Set your settings beforehand. Life out on the street often moved quickly, and you don’t want to miss what could have been the perfect shot because you were fiddling with your settings.
  • Check out these lessons from the iconic Garry Winogrand on how to better your street photography game.
  • Need more tips? We’ve gotcha! Check out these ones here to help you out

Extra Credit: Make a Statement

For some extra credit joojoo, capture a photo that really speaks! Photography can be an incredibly powerful tool, used not just to make art, but to make statements as well. The best statements in photography require little to no text, so make sure to really capture your statement!

Check out The Googles for more inspiration!!

 

Remember, it is not necessary to keep this Extra Credit challenge in mind while shooting. It’s extra credit!

*Please note!! You can only submit ONE photo per week, for the week’s challenge. This photo can include the “Extra Credit” part of the challenge, or the “regular” challenge, but you can never submit more than one photo!
