Street Photography Field Notes
- Clean your sensor!
- Need to come back to Boston
- Let the dice roll where they may
- Taking portraits of strangers is intimidating, but there’s ways to do it that makes it less so. The hardest part is asking, ” Can I take your photo?” The answer is either yes or no. Maybe some questioning too, but other than that if you can get past the initial fear street portraiture is a lot of fun.
- There are circumstances where asking a person to take their photo would ruin the shot. Candidness only comes off if the subject isn’t actively aware/posing for your photo. Street portraiture is very much so a “feel out” situation.
- Need proper walking shoes
- Walking around with music might change what and how I photograph.
- In the city, you’re just another anonymous person walking around going about their business. I find that my self-consciousness is diminished and I’m able to be an observer without any pressure.
- Sometimes a place is so lively and photogenic that it requires sticking around and waiting for moments to happen that you can photograph. Usually I like taking photos on the move, but certain areas need to be waited on and seen from a bunch of different angles/ perspectives.
