Mastering Street Photography (Paperback)
Street photography has a tradition dating back over a century, and today's digital world finds it enjoying a renaissance—yet there is little expert advice available. This is a practical guide to capturing the candid moments that reveal life at its most dramatic, absurd, or beautiful. Brian Lloyd Duckett demonstrates how the successful street photographer needs to be an unseen observer, with the camera a mirror of everyday scenes and unaware subjects. A guide to equipment and technical skills leads into lessons in finding inspiration, developing projects, and composing different subjects and scenes—laying the foundations for you to impose your personality on your photography and develop your own distinctive style. The book also addresses such key issues as staying safe and within the law when photographing on the street, and the art of building an audience for your images.
