Adding dynamic movement to your Street Photography is a great way to add sophistication, make people look more interesting, mask their identity, add life and a great story telling / narrative tool.
Let’s look at the image above as an example. Before I even raise my camera, I ask myself this simple question: “What are you trying to say?” and in this instant, I wanted to tell the story of a man meditating in China Town surrounded by noise and chaos.
I’ve used various tools including leading lines, composition and depth of field to tell the viewer that it’s about the ‘man meditating’. This primary narrative is supported by the long exposure movement of the truck exiting left and the man exiting right – these provide the ‘surrounded by noise and chaos.’ to my story.
Is this for me?
This on location London Street Photography Workshop is ideal for anyone who wants to develop their street photography, including those who’ve attended any of our workshops, or our exclusive Royal Photographic Society Beginners Guide to Street Photography.
