What is Street Photography? Street photography is about making visually interesting images through candid moments everyday life. It is up to you to see the world and its stories, emotions, quirks, characters and your environment. Blink or hesitate and the moment maybe gone forever!
Where can I shoot? The "street", as defined in street photography can be absolutely anywhere, from a crowded market, a shop window, the park, a museum or just out and about on your travels.
Is it legal to shoot people in public? The short and fast answer yes! As long as you are in a public domain (i.e you are not standing on private property or being obstructive you have the right to shoot strangers. Use your street smarts, show social etiquette and common curtesy at all times.
Street photographers are an interesting and controversial breed. As with any form of photography, there are varying techniques, styles, approaches, and equipment used. This group aims to make and keep street photography accessible to everyone! To catch a decisive moment or stumble upon serendipitous timing does not necessarily require expensive gear - some street photographers use an iPhone as their choice. It isn't what you use but what you see with your eyes and making it work.
Events range from beginner and intermediate street walks, challenges, workshops, day trips, social drinks, talks, visits to exhibitions and galleries and more.
This group will suit you if you are interested in exploring urban environments with your camera in small group numbers. That will mean shooting strangers in public spaces. The focus of the group is to use the urban environment and whatever or whomever it presents on any given day.
All levels and abilities are welcome! The only prerequisite is that you want to be shooting as much as possible, view no time as a bad time to shoot, and have vast amounts of fun while doing it.
