Street Photography is Cheaper than Therapy!

Street Photography is Cheaper than Therapy!

Last week we moved out of the house we moved into just six months ago. We are undertaking a major renovation to transform this house into our forever home. This move is the fourth one in six years for us! For the next month, we are camping out at my sister’s. Then we...
What is your Street Photography Style?

What is your Street Photography Style?

I’ve been actively enjoying street photography for almost two years now. And as I pursue this challenging genre, I wonder if I have managed to develop my own street photography style, or if this is something I need to work on? Should my images have a similar...
Silhouettes in Street Photography

Superman and the Shy Street Photographer

Superman and the Shy Street Photographer

You may be wondering what Superman and a shy street photographer have in common. Bear with me for a few minutes, and I’ll try to fill you in! I am an extremely shy person. I remember being so nervous when I had to give oral presentations in grade school. In...
The Street is a Stage

The Street is a Stage

There are many ways to approach street photography. One of my favourites takes patience but almost always pays off with a great image. The trick is to find an interesting background and turn the street into a stage. A ray of light, a wall with unique graffiti, or a...
Out of My Comfort Zone, 50mm Failure?

Out of My Comfort Zone, 50mm Failure?

In my opinion, street photography is one of the toughest genres of photography to master. Every day that I go out and shoot, I come back with a little bit more knowledge and confidence. I still have so much to learn, and I always look forward to getting out on the...
