During your first few days of street photography, the main obstacle is how to overcome the fear of taking stranger’s photographs. With a little practice however, you can easily overcome your fear and reluctance of photographing strangers and learn some techniques that will set you on your path to taking some unique shots. For me, shooting 3+ years of numerous photography, I feel like I know how to navigate my surroundings and stay out the way, while still getting the shot that I’m looking for. Now when I go out, especially for street photography, I know what I’m looking for heading out or at least get inspired by the mood of the city that day or evening.
Street photography isn’t complicated, it’s what you’re looking for in that particular day. Select a subject and focus on it. Point your camera towards this subject or object and use the auto focus feature if necessary. If you do not do this, your picture will look blurry. Play with conventions and select an unusual point of focus if you want original pictures. For this series, we are focusing on street photography shots in the city on a rainy day.
