Word on the Streets - Edition I

Let's talk about #street Baby  My Dork Dance by Abfc




A word on #streetphotography 


RIMINI: ROCK'N ROLL by blueanto

Rock'n'roll!


Yes people, I wrote down "rock'n'roll" as the first word to speak about Street photography in this first edition of #wordonthestreets.

Why, but why? :la:
Well... Rock'n'roll has a lot, well more than that: billions of subgenres in terms of music types qualified as "rock'n'roll".
Guess what?
About street photography, it's the same! 
So...

    Do street photography needs to be candid?

(ouch, i might get shot to submit such a question!) Yes and no :P Why not provoking the subject(s)?



    Does portrait photography can be street? Yes. With or without permission? With and without.



    Are urban shots street photography? OMG: guess! Yes! With people of course? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :la: =P



    Still life can be street photog...? (in other words: are you under drugs?!) Well. Yes.




And many more questions i could ask and answer, then get shot forever by purists or academics Run away rainbow by CookiemagiK
I think you got my point. I hope :stare:
 

ambivalence by slownumbers


A word on technic


I'll share in this first edition a bit of my settings and way of shooting with my fujifilm X100T, as well as with my canon 5D Mark II.
I'm working in aperture priority mode. What does it mean?
I "read" the light (a part of it :P) and choose manually the iso (ISO is the sensitivity about light, increasing or decreasing at the same aperture the triggering speed), but you can also rely on the automatic iso set up.

Then and most of all: increasing or decreasing the aperture will define the depth of field.

In street shooting promenades, i'm very very often at f.8 :)
When my aperture increases (smaller f.number figure and a shallow depth of field), I prefer to be in manual focus (not autofocus...)

Yes I do :eyes:

Why? Try it. It's amazing how you will discover actually you're often in street sessions shooting through something. Like a window? Using reflection? A car window? A door? Even glasses for a portrait, Etc... it will allow you to play on where you want to aim and shoot...!
(also my viewfinder on my camera helps me to get sure i'm neat where i want... But hey, I started with a minolta X700 so you know, AF is so overrated  bunneh icon13 by WeirdBunnehClub
. Ok :stare: I get out :sprint:)

A word on what's up on DA about Street?


Plenty! :dummy:
 

First of all, go read those amazing journals and adventures lived by niklin1 lived in Turkey, and meeting other awesome street photographers and photographers of DA :love:
Going to Istanbul todayAnd the Live Blog will commence!
Here's a link to my "prequel episode"
Sooo excited to meet BOTH Ziaul Kareem, Alphan AND Canan this week!
Be well everybody!  :hug:

Niklas
Three More Istanbul StoriesI've been busy bloggin' an' shootin'!!!
So here's one more story.
And here's another one.
And one more....   :-)
Be well!
Niklas


Then go have a look to the amazing features done by a very growing talent on DA and so promising street photographer jesseboy000 :
Neat Street Features =Issue One=So here is the first edition of Neat St. Features. I decided not to go forward with calling it what I said in my last journal :P Also I really want a separate way to feature street photography aside from all the other categories. I'm going to feature the other categories in a separate journal so they can stand out in their own way as well.
I find a lot of the deviants I follow from others' features of their work, so I figure I need to do that more often and it's fun! Sorry I've been a behind on my stacks, but I will be having more time on my hands very soon my friends. Cheers :beer:
Meme (Popcorn) [V1] Commence the features!:Popcorn-Toss: 




  Neat Street Features =Issue Two=Welcome to Issue #2 :newspaper: of my collection Neat St. features. Expect a new issue about every Monday or Tuesday. The Delectable Deviations features should be expected on Thursdays. :) Look at this, we have a nice schedule starting!
I'm very impressed by the recent amount of amazing street that has been submitted by all the artists I watch this week, and I am very excited to share some. I have gotten a good night's rest and am currently up before the sun typing this right now, going through these street shots is really inspiring to me and I plan on spending the entire day outside (forecast is cloudy, not rainy :la:) with both my XT1 and Voigtlander at my hand. Maybe I'll steal some souls or something...
                               
  Neat Street Features =Issue Three=Welcome to Issue #3 :newspaper: of my collection Neat St. features. Happy Leap Day everybody! :Bummies: I feel like this should be a world wide holiday and celebrated more since it literally is an extra day that normally wouldn't exist, I think that's cool anyway.
I've been having fun learning with my Dp2 Merrill camera I just got, I've never dealt with such high resolution files and incredible color range, it feels like medium format digital or something crazy! I've just been so busy lately and a little sore from work that I haven't been out shooting in the last couple of days. Luckily I have all of you to watch and feature in the meantime! Keep up the amazing work! I really appreciate the feedback on my most recent work as well, thank you all very much. :beer: Cheers!
This is scary...
Here is Seattle's forecast as of now...
  Neat Street Features =Issue Four=Welcome to Issue 4 :newspaper: of the Neat Street Collection Features. This week I have found and added some amazing works to the collection, from an array of all the amazing street photographers I follow here on dA. It's been fun running this Neat Street journal every Monday and been on schedule for a month now How high can you go?
I recently shot some color through my Voigtlander and got some interesting results and good feedback! I'm excited to experiment with some other kinds of color film. When I was shooting the color I kept my mind open and eye peeled for color connections or interesting things that b/w would miss or interpret differently. Fun experience!
The rain is still falling here, but I'm managing to get shooting in here and there and it might be nice later this week I've heard Shrug We will see.
Cheers Cheers to all my wat


Get used to have a look to these two regular journals edited weekly in which you can find fine selections of street photogs :
Friday Night Specials v3.1

If you like what you see, +favlove this article
so it can reach as many deviants as possible.

A weekly selection amongst the images we liked,
while browsing the Street Gallery,
and we think they deserve more attention.
Enjoy them, comment on them and remember
to visit the photographers' galleries as well.

A word on (my) street


#streetavengers get ready (to be released soon ;))


In the meanwhile...  I wanted to share with you this amazing video about how a street photographer shoots :la:






The Question of #wordonthestreets:


Does the history of street photography made by academics relate easily to the intuitive common sense of people about what is street photog?

:stare:

To me? NO
Is a definition of what is street photog essential? NO.


So.
Good news. :dummy:
On DA, your Servitor will have pleasure not to be academics about the street photog shared in the DA Arena...


Because the only category about Street photography in #deviantart is...
"Street Photography".


:woohoo:





Please! Shoot me comments, reactions, your love, your anger, your views, your creativity, your mood, your ideas! Questions are welcome too.

Street suggestions of course are always much appreciated!

Wow I've been enjoying spending some time reading through this and wow William Klein!  :wow:

:la: the music, the street passion! , the incredible and humorous way you write, the articles, are all so great!!
I liked reading about how you shoot in Aperture priority, I like how you manually adjust iso so you don't have to worry about choosing shutter speed (as the iso you chose keeps you in a nice range) and then you promote a larger DOF! Brilliant!

Thank you so much for promoting my Neat Street issues!

You are awesome my friend! This really is inspiring me, it makes me want to go out in the pouring rain and shoot! :)

Cheers Cheers

Isn't William Klein terrific?! :la:
I'm glad you enjoyed the word on technique ;) I guess this is what we might share more beyond our love for our own kind of photos... Because the cross over categories is easy as long as you can find common techniques in order to improve oneself :la:
You're welcome Jesse about your #neatstreetissues (make it a famous hashtag :squee:)

And well :blush: Thx for the support and compliment. But more than anything: i'm glad it can bring inspiration for you.

So yeah go Nuts! GO SHOOT AND BE BRILLIANT (as usual :stare: :lol:)

Cheers Buddy

ok, i'll need more time to read and watch all this wonderful things you put in this article about (for me) the most interesting thing in the world - street photography !Nod 
although I'm just an amateur who knows so little about photography in general No, I disagree!  (and I'm doing something completely different in "real life") , I just adore that feeling that street photography evokes in me... Blush 
so, I just pop in to say : thank you , you are doing wonderful thing in your effort to promote street photography Worship w00t!

:stare: You made me blush. :heart:
I think we share a common passion :love: #streetphotography is just bloody awesome.
Of course i like the way we describe it on #deviantart... And you can find what I'm talking about in my dd guidelines (on my front page :)). Though I am hoping with those series to reach out artists and devious who might think street photography is not accessible or "difficult" while... Well, it's all related to what we love the most: human and her/his environment :)
Then...
I have to humbly but firmly disagree about your Photography. :giggle:
I'm also doing something totally "different" in life (you have no idea!!! :lol:).
But well: you might say you are an "amateur" but your Photog is powerful, really touching, and I'm sure reflecting your sensibility and love for being behind the lens and triggering :la:
Also I'm curious! What does #streetphotography evokes to you? :)

Pop in whenever you want. And lemme know what you'll have thought when having taken time about this first (not perfect) article of a series I hope it will reach out many people around the place... :rose:

Street photographers are daring people, always observing and watching a little further; capturing at the right time (creating art). I think that's what I find so interesting.
I must also say that I really enjoy your writing  :)

And yes: street photogs often don't call themselves like this since... They have I guess at least a common point: they do care about the People. "Looking further". :love: You said it so well! :)
