Rules and myths of candid photography: An Introduction   Leave a comment

Through reading street photography forums and blogs, you can find several discussions about how street photography should be done. I will list some of them:

  • Black & White or Color
  • Wide angle or telephoto lenses
  • Ask permission or invade privacy
  • Use post processing or in camera only imaging

Let me say this now before we will delve into further details:

Photography is art. You have to make candid images that are the best for you, and, hopefully, somebody will express interest in them. Everything else is irrelevant.

Before you read an expert’s advice on how candid photography should be done, first look at his pictures. If you like them, read more and practice, otherwise continue looking for your own way.

I will address each aspect of candid photography in my next posts. Stay tuned.

Now it is my time to preach.
