Are you a Street Photographer looking to change your street photography game?
Starting out as a photographer, everyone tries to find their genre, something that will interest them.
Street photography will always be that one niche that every photographer from all genres has tried.
It’s not the only favourite of freelance photographers but it also helps you perfect your skills during the whole process.
If you’re looking out for ways to improve your skills in street photography then this article is a must-read for you.
Let’s get started!
1. Be Bold, Be Creative
Street photography is all about people staring at you and you being uncomfortable with the stare. But as a street photographer, you need to start getting habitual of the stare.
The stares and everybody wondering what exactly you’re trying to do should never pull you back from capturing the once in a lifetime moment.
Start ignoring everyone but you also need to communicate in the right way while clicking pictures. Anyone would get suspicious if you stand beside their car trying to capture something.
Explain them and make them believe that you’re not stealing anything, you’re just trying to take a picture.
2. Don’t Try Too Hard
Live the moment and don’t be too harsh on yourself to take the perfect click. Mistakes will be made at the start but it’s your job to learn from those mistakes and do better every time.
Critiques are everywhere but that shouldn’t stop you from doing what you love the most.
The problem while being too hard on yourself is the pressure that is created of performing outstandingly.
Street photography should be fun and easy. Get into the moment and capture everything that catches your eyes.
3. Try Less Crowded Places
Crowed locations like markets, festivals, are great for street photography. But try to look for places that are less crowded and full of moments.
Find these places and explore them because you can’t be missing out on a chance to capture a fantastic moment as a street photographer.
Here, you’ll get fewer stares and a lot of places for you to explore and capture.
4. Connect With Your Subject
It’s very essential to connect with the subject that you’re planning to capture. More than connecting, understand your subject and study your subject.
Be it a beautiful building, a tree or even people. Learn to connect and study them to bring out the best in them.
This connection will be shown in your pictures and it will play a vital role in bringing out the best in your subject.
5. Be Consistent
Consistency is the key to everything and in order to change your street photography game, you will have to master this.
Street Photography is a difficult skill to master and your only way out of this is being consistent.
Take out some time from your everyday work life, be it break time, or after work. Just start capturing everything that is catching your eyes and try to get better with each click.
Street photography is like free-writing for photographers. Where you get to explore new places, new things, and new people.
