To Ask or Shoot | Street Photography Tips on how to shoot strangers.
Taking pictures of strangers can be intimidating.If you ask the moment may be gone, but if you don´t there may be a bigger problem. How do you decide to photograph strangers?
Why Street Photography is not Documentary Photography
“Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth” – Pablo Picasso
Look-up ‘Street Photography’ in Wikipedia and the attempt to define it starts with ‘… a form of documentary photography’. But is it really? Both Street Photography and Documentary photography are well understood traditions, so why is it that the former is so easily confused for the latter?
Analog Photography in Street Photography
Why the hell should I do this?, you may ask. And then you will list all the disadvantages as a slow workflow from the exposure to the final image, that you can’t control immediately, what you have shot. That you only have a limited number of pictures on a film, that you can’t change the ASA- setting from one image to the next and, and, and….Well and now after many years of technical development even hardcore analog-fans have to admit that the technical quality of digitally taken pictures are better than those of exposured on film. But have you ever asked yourself why all these great photographers as for example Henri Cartier Bresson, Saul Leiter, Chargesheimer only to mention a few – why and how they could take their pictures without any digital help?
The answer is obvious: It’s not only a question of used technology.
