Casper Macindoe describes in his own words What is Street Photography, or more accurately What is(n't) Street Photography!

What is Street Photography?

I’m sure all photographers who pound the street have turned over the ‘What is Street Photography?’ question, maybe researched and maybe come to some conclusions. In this blog post it’s now come to me to define the undefinable. So rather than beginning with the ‘What is it?’ I thought I’d take it from ‘What it isn’t?’ and hopefully whatever is remaining IS Street Photography.

What binds my choice of the ‘Famous Five’?

Through all these works and images that follow, I feel these 5 photographers smash preconceptions of photography, they work tirelessly every day, they see nothing but the exuberance of life , they don’t give a flying jiggery pokery about camera gear and without fail they make me smile…..thanks guys

p.s. In writing this I’ve realised my famous five doesn’t contain a female street photographer whom tickles me in the same way the chaps do…..do you have any suggestions?

How to file for easy retrieval in Photoshop

Introduction

With a strike rate of one in a hundred, the storage of digital negatives for street photography is critical. I have a method based on the wise words from Don Han and his co authored book ‘On being a photographer’, which every photographer should spend the few pennies and sharpen up their skills.

Storage these days is easy, with external hard drives and the cloud but the process should be equally simple. This is how I do it from SD card to save and close.

Introduction

Are you suffering from a lack of inspiration? Do you Street shots look the same? Are you in a rut?

Often enough we plough our own furrow and on occasion what used to inspire only confirms we’ve reached a stepping stone in our street photography and it’s time to scale new heights but we don’t know where or how.

I come from a fine art background and have painted for a number of years so rather than incestuously digging over photos again and again, although this very much has it place, I reach into other visual media to inspire.
