A Comprehensive Guide To Street Photography

Street photography is not the easiest genre to get into, especially if you tend to have a more timid personality or enjoy working alone. However, it can be a tremendously interesting one, and even if it is not your primary pursuit, it can do a lot of good to sharpen your skills in many other genres. If you are interesting in street photography and wondering how to get started, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will show you everything from composition and lighting to gear choices and editing. 

Coming to you from Jason Vong, this great video tutorial will show you everything you need to know about street photography. Even if you do not plan to make street photography your main genre, it can bring serious benefits to many other genres. For example, wedding shooters may find that it improves their work. The need to be able to anticipate action moving into the frame while simultaneously planning a composition and evaluating lighting is the exact sort of thing that goes into shooting a wedding reception, for example, and street photography can help you sharpen those skills before money and memories are on the line. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Vong.
