Street Photography for dummiesStreet Photography for dummies3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations. Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed" Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-

The series of 5 articles about Street Photography made by myraincheck and slightly edited by moi* ends with:
WHAT IS STREET PHOTOGRAPHY?
Trying to define a genre of photography like Street, it implies the consciousness that one definition will never be enough, or exhaustive, or able to cover the molteplicity of its possibilities and situations. Nevertheless let's try to comprehend the philosophy behind the passion for street photography.
Let's start stating that a street photo is not a photography of streets and it is not necessarily a photo taken in a street. So what does 'street' mean? Street is whatever background or surrounding, not staged, not posed by the photgrapher. And street is whatever photography which captures, explores humanity, the human behaviour, the relationships between individuals and between individuals and their surroundings.
"The essence of street photography is the impulse to take candid pictures in the

Lewis Hine, The Spiderman PhotographerLewis Wickes Hine was born in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1874. He became a teacher in New York City at the Ethical Culture School, where he encouraged his students to use photography as an educational médium.Lewis Hine, The Spiderman Photographer3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In 1906, Hine became the staff photographer of the Russell Sage Foundation. Here Hine photographed life in the steel-making districts. In 1908, he became the photographer for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC), leaving his teaching position. Over the next decade, Hine documented child labor in American industry to aid the NCLC's lobbying efforts to end the practice.
During and after World War I, he photographed American Red Cross relief work in Europe. In the 1920s and early 1930s, Hine made a series of "work portraits," which emphasized the human contribution to modern industry. In 1930, Hine was commissioned to document the construction of The Empire State Building. Hine photographed the workers in precarious positions while they secured the iron and steel framework of th
Sebastião Salgado, a living legendAs any boy, I grew up absorving the World. And the World mesmerized me everytime my late dad would bring some journals or magazines where Sebastião Salgado's photos were featured.Sebastião Salgado, a living legend3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can´t hide the admiration I have for this photographer, this man that is still alive and living in Paris, and the way he changed my way of seeing the World, respecting my fellow man, seeing the light where only darkness seems to exist.
Sebastião Salgado was born on February 8th, 1944 in Aimorés, in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Began his career as a professional photographer in 1973 in Paris, working with the photo agencies Sygma, Gamma, and Magnum Photos until 1994, when he and Lélia Wanick Salgado formed Amazonas images, an agency created exclusively for his work.
He is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, and an honorary member of the Academy of Arts and Sciences in the United States.
Uses Leica, most of the time he uses 28mm, 35mm and 60mm lenses (one for each camera body). He use
Decisive Moment vs Moment to DecideHenri Cartier-Bresson defines "The Decisive Moment" as follows:Decisive Moment vs Moment to Decide3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative. Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever."
However, Henri Cartier-Bresson didn't only take one single photograph when he saw a decisive moment ready to happen (David Hurn refers to this as a "pregnant moment") but rather took several images of the same scene.
That truth is reinforced by the fact that "Gare" is one of only two photographs I know of that Cartier-Bresson cropped. There was a fence off to the left, and he didn't have time to move to the right before it was time to shoot.
You can see the original, un-cropped version in his book, Henri Cartier Bresson: Scrapbook.
If you look carefully at the masters work like Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, or

But the 64-year-old had never enlarged any of the pictures beyond tiny contact sheets until two years ago, when he was diagnosed with Myeloma, an incurable cancer.
Not wanting to leave thousands of uncatalogued, unseen images lying in boxes he began going through the collection. The photographs are now the subject of an exhibition at the Watermill Gallery in Aberfeldy, Perthshire.
