Street Photography

For the past month, I have been working on my Street photography skills. Before starting this project I had never attempted street photography. I have seen some great examples, not just Henri Cartier-Bresson but also at a number of exhibitions, including the London Street Photography at the Museum of London I visited back in February.

My main reason for taking on this project was to, while the wedding season has more or less died down for the year, keep my creative juices flowing. To get me to see pictures in every day life that I would normally miss.

After a slow start, I was surprised how differently I started seeing things. Ordinary, every day scenes held little snippets of life that some people are too busy rushing from one thing to another to see.

It is amazing how quickly this month has gone, and I have really enjoyed my project. I have included some of my favourite pictures from the month in this post. However, there was one photograph that completely sums up street photography for me. It is about always having your camera handy and ready to shoot. If you are really lucky, an every day activity will be given a new twist!

I would love to hear your feedback on my project and pictures. If you have any suggestions on another project I should try, please leave a comment below or drop me an email.



Great work...
