Theater of the Streets, Shot On Google Glass Richard Koci Hernandez—@koci_glass Taken in San Fransisco, an image posted to the photographer's @koci_glass Instagram account on June 24, 2013. More than a century ago, in New York City, Paul Strand began creating some of the earliest candid street photography. His goal was to capture people as they act in public, unaware of the observing eye. Street photographers have followed suit ever since, adopting every emerging technology available to minimize or conceal the barrier between photographer and subject.

10 rules of photo composition (and why they work) In photography, it’s not just what you shoot that counts – the way that you shoot it is crucial, too. Poor photo composition can make a fantastic subject dull, but a well-set scene can create a wonderful image from the most ordinary of situations. With that in mind, we’ve picked our top 10 photo composition ‘rules’ to show you how to transform your images, as well as offered some of our best photography tips from the experts who do it on a daily basis. Don’t feel that you’ve got to remember every one of these laws and apply them to each photo you take. Instead, spend a little time practising each one in turn and they’ll become second nature.

Amateur street photography: a beginner's guide Picture the scene: you're out on the sidewalk – maybe shopping, chatting or just daydreaming. Suddenly, you notice a shifty-looking bloke pointing a camera at you. What's your reaction? Discomfort, embarrassment – anger? Before you lose your temper, spare a thought for the person behind the camera. As a practitioner of the increasingly popular art of amateur street photography, I can assure you there's every chance the photographer is feeling as embarrassed as you, and is just as uncomfortable with the idea of invading your privacy.

Filling the frame — Alex Rumford Photography Having said all this, with such emphasis on tightness, you do often need some space for the subject to 'breathe', as in the image of the field worker. As we mentioned, too many pictures too close, and pictures become cramped. So for a portrait of someone at home, a little extra in the frame can help to locate your subject, without necessarily resulting in dead space. As you move back, you can give information as to the clothes they're wearing, then their pose, then how they 'sit' in their space, their body language. Further back and you include perhaps their furniture, even the type of books they like to read. The picture is looser every time, but there is enough useful information to justify the space.
