The Day Of The Video
So, as I mentioned before, in Street Talk Episode #10 I talk about “Flash Street Photography during the day”. In this video you will see me discuss Flash during the day and I will be taking a short walk around town making a few flash street photos. I explain the basic theory behind this street photography technique and share my settings with you. I hope you like what you see!
The “Flash Street Photography during the day” video
When you use a flash you have much more control over the light. This is a fact. If you practice and really get accustomed to this technique you can create surreal looking images with colours that pop! It is of course a more intrusive way of shooting, but on the other hand it is a more open and honest way of doing street photography since you are not hiding your intentions by being stealthy, rather you are shooting “in your face”. If you are interested in learning more about Flash Street Photography, you should check out our Workshops section and join one of our Flash Street Photography workshops taking place in Athens and London over the next few months.
Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
