The five levels of street photography | street photography tips for editing

Street Photography Tips for editing / selecting images.

Editing is the hardest part of street photography. It is harder than being confronted by strangers or getting lost in the bad part of town or trying to focus manually with the Fuji X100.

Just to clarify, for the purposes of this post, when I say editing I am referring to the process of selecting the images that “make the cut” and discarding the ones that don’t. My decision process when looking at one of my images usually goes something like this: “wow, this one is fantastic!…..maybe not…..well, it could be……ah.. whatever, I’m keeping it….. I guess….not sure…… yes!”. At the risk of discombobulating such a scientific and rigorous process I started to think if there could be a better way to more easily select images that have higher impact and meaning and that will make me feel a little better about my photographs.

Why Street Photography is not Documentary Photography

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 Street Photography

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.
