The Day Of The Video
So, as I mentioned before, in Street Talk Episode #09 I talk about “Slow shutter speed Street Photography”. The day of the recording the weather was unstable. One minute it would rain the next minute it would be sunny. So, I decided in order to avoid any unexpected interruptions by the weather, to shoot the theoretical part of the video inside and once that was done to move outside for some practical shooting.
The “Slow shutter speed Street Photography” video
Using slow shutters speeds you can produce some really interesting images. I personally find that this technique works much better in larger towns and cities, since you need moving and still subjects to get the best results. Some of you might not find this style of shooting street appealing, others might love it. Personally, I don’t shoot like this, it isn’t my style, however I do enjoy the results other street photographers get with slow shutter speeds and I urge you to give it go and experience it for yourself. You never know, you might just love it!
Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
