The Biggest Secret of Photography

You’ll hear this over and over from the photographers that I interview: Take your dang camera with you everywhere! Cartier-Bresson took his camera with him EVERYwhere—to the cleaners, to the cafe, to the cinema…he always had his trusty Leica M2 with him. Yep, that’s why I got one many, many years ago, hoping the magic would rub off. Ansel Adams got his famous Shot “Moon and Half Dome” on his way to happy hour. If you saw my last show you heard Chase Jarvis tell you to get off your bum and get out and get some shots!

So this is basic point: Take your camera around with you everywhere. Then next day process them and pick out your best and send it to me. BTW, as one by-product of this exercise you’ll have to get over any sort of “stage fright” that accompanies having a camera with you all the time and getting shots!

20 Quick Street Photography Tips

Photography by Carlo Nicora Here’s their headings an a few thoughts on each one from me: Less is More – don’t take too much equipment and travel light. It’ll make you less obtrusive and you will be able to move around for the best shot quickly.Off the Beaten Track – don’t just go to all the touristy shots – try to get ‘behind the scenes’ and ‘real life’ scenes.Stolen Moments – anticipate moments between people before they happen.True Colours – black and white is often where it’s at with street photography but at times colourful situations arise and can really make a shot – be on the look out for these.In the Background – what’s goign on behind your subject can actually ‘make’ the shot.
