365 Days Photo challenge | Day 16

Hey Photographers! Today is the day 16/365 Days Photo Challenge! 


?Photo Tip #16

Find the plot when you shoot!


Today I would like to share with you some simple tips which will help you improve your street photography! Many photographers think that street photography is random shots of random people and stuff but actually good street photography it's more than just pictures it's storytelling. Before I will share with you my tips how to find stories for your street shots let's take a look at some of my street photos with storytelling!



?Photo Examples After/Before Editing:

The one thing I want to mention before we continue, you can create your own stories that's the reason why I love street photography so much! Now let's see what how to find or create stories on you street photos.


I've prepared list of things you have do while shooting:


1. Don't wear headphones! You may miss a big event just right under your nose.

2. Visit crowded places.

3. Look for "weirdos".

4. Shoot coincidence.

5. Try to follow someone for a bit to see what may happen ( but be careful with that ).

6. Try public transport.

7. Use smaller camera, most of the people afraid of cameras.

8. Be as fast as possible. Use aperture or shutter priorities or even auto modes.

9. Shoot alone.

10. Be patient.


Of course there are much more things you have to keep on mind but don't worry everything will come with experience. Probably the most important thing that I forgot to include in the list is PRACTISE


?Let's sum up our day 14!
