Starting a new thread for the benefit of you street shooters.

It may also be time to politely remind some people that Street Photography is not shots of empty streets, buildings, signs and graffiti.

We have an article here called The Joys of Street Photography prepared by our own Turerkan, which also contains some great references.

I like the first -- not one person is looking at the man with the kilt. Not sure about the second because the date 9-11-01 is not that obvious, but I guess it shows life is back to normal -- and the guy on the right is facing straight at the flag.

From what I got from Rubberdials' thread, wouldn't the above shots would be classed as 'candid portraits'? I thought street photography was more about abstract forms and drawing meaning from shots that wasn't immediately apparent - I see some lovely candid shots but I'm not seeing much meaning.

hey ABramley,

i would say you are correct - most of mine would blur between the street you mentioned and street portraits, which are often separated by hardcore street enthusiasts. they also have other sub niches like "fine art street" where there are exclusively shots with no people in them, go figure right?

anyhow, instead of starting 10 different threads, throwing them all in one thread as street photography is better than nothing. next i'll be adding shots from the airport lobby and the beach. ;-)
