The beauty of street photography is that it takes almost no organisation – you simply grab your camera, walk out of your front door and start seeking opportunities for a shot. Sometimes the simple act of having a camera in your hand is enough to start seeing the potential for photographs that might otherwise go unnoticed, and we want to see interactions between people – be that conscious or subconscious – and their surroundings. Shooting with a wideangle lens within the ‘action’ will often produce a dynamic and exciting shot, while a longer lens will allow you to isolate your subject from its surroundings, concentrating on expression and pose. This is very often a genre that photographers are keen to pursue, but find themselves lacking the nerve to attempt. If this sounds like you, why not challenge yourself to enter this category? Who knows – you might end up walking away with first place!
