Street photography is photography that features the human condition within public places. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. Though people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.
Most kinds of portable camera are used for street photography; for example rangefinders, digital and film SLRs, and point-and-shoot cameras. A commonly used focusing technique is zone focusing which we will be demonstrating — setting a fixed focal distance and shooting from that distance — as an alternative to manual-focus and autofocus.
The traditional (but not exclusive) focal lengths of 35 mm to 50 mm (in 35 mm terms), are used particularly for their angle of view and increased depth of field, but there are no exclusions to what might be used.
Whether a beginner or a more experienced photographer, you can develop that urban edge to your street photography. Push your creative skills and learn more about your camera and your creativity
