Street photography can actually be done anywhere you find people as it is all about documenting everyday life. Pictures can be made in any public place and are usually candid (without permission) and use unmanipulated scenes. Create your own reality and be imaginative so your pictures tell a story!
There are several different genres:
- Urban landscapes
- Look up (pictures of the skyline)
- Stride by
Night time pictures can be difficult to make but can help you emphasis subjects through your use of light. You can add interest as well such as the extra character at the side of the picture looking back at the main subject adds a sprinkle of mystery to this scene!
Look up pictures work best with lots of skyscrapers so again you have to be creative in a small town. Try getting really close to the building or make your picture at night to make the building really pop!
There are lots of great places in a Dumaguete to make interesting street photography. You just have to get out there and overcome your fear of making pictures of strangers. A smile really help!
