I'm pleased to announce that LA Weekday photography meet up is merging with ours. Primarily they go out on shoot events like Streets, portraits but mostly on weekdays. Their description of meet up is as follows:
Learn, Practice and Improve Photo Skills Everyday!!! Most meetup photo groups only meet on weekends... Well, not this one! So, whether you're a pro photogs, stay at home parents, business owners, retirees and yes those who want to skip boring staff meetings once in a while, AND have some free hours on weekdays. you're more than welcome to join this group. All cameras, types and skills are welcome!
MAYA SOUCAR, who is now the Asst. Organizer for this group will be posting meet up events for that category. I hope you guys will have fun shooting during weekdays as well :)
Street photography is the art of exploring life as it happens in the everyday moment, capturing the lives of others in a decisive instant frozen in time,
Street photography tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter , it often concentrates on a single human act, caught at a decisive or poignant moment.
On the other hand, much of street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter,
giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with.
Since the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture throughout Europe and North America.
Street Photography is the process of finding situations that can be resolved into meaningful images ,, It is one of the hardest forms of photography in that you get only one chance to get it right before the moment is lost forever.
Street photography is closely related to photojournalism and documentary photography and the lines between the three disciplines is often blurred or nonexistent
