Wundor Street Photography Contest

Wundor Editions, a London-based company committed to publishing innovative and challenging literature and images, working with new and established writers and photographers, has announced an exciting street photography contest for this early part of 2018!

Wundor is looking for one image that cuts into the city it was taken in and reveals something telling about the urban environment and its inhabitants. The subject matter of the image could range from a simple shot that captures the light and the architectural fabric of the place at a particular time on a particular day, to a picture of a person caught in a revealing moment, to anything in-between. Wundor says that If necessary, they are happy to see the definition of street photography stretched to the maximum.

Top Tips for Street Photography in Rain & Bad Weather

Introduction

This time last year Spyros Papaspyropoulos wrote a set of tips and suggestions for summer street photography projects for all you street photographers to have a go at if you’re lucky enough to be able to get away for your summer holidays. If you’re familiar with that list, you may remember Spyros made lots of suggestions for street photography on the beach, and even in the sea! Now that’s all well and good, as Spyros lives in Greece, and he knows his summer will have the characteristics of an actual summer – i.e., sunny! But not everyone can count on the summer weather, and being British I understand that as well as anyone! As I write this, the UK set to be battered by gale force winds and rain sweeping in from the Atlantic, and my hometown is enduring rain and temperatures of around 15 degrees (60F). So in a gesture of solidarity to those who live in countries with summers that aren’t much to write home about, I thought I’d offer some street photography tips, suggestions, and project ideas for rainy and cloudy weather. Those of you reading this in more extreme weather conditions in the middle of an icy winter should also check out Andrew Sweigart’s guide to winter weather street photography to learn how best to practice street photography in the most adverse of weather conditions. If you’re well prepared there’s no reason to let a day’s bad weather ruin your planned street hunt! So read on for more….
