Street Photography (Getting ready for Work) PT2

  • Jul 18, 2014 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is a continuation of the meetup, "Telling Stories with Street Photography." We will be meeting up and do a photowalk around central.

 

Overview of meetup:
When: July 18th, 8AM
Where: Central Statue Square
Narrative Theme: "Getting ready for work"
Other rules: Submit photos to the July 1st Meetup.


What is street Photography? (adapted from the 'Street Photography' facebook group)
"Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public spaces. Street Photography is often like holding a mirror to society. One part documenting and recording what we see. Another part telling stories or a message that the photographer wants to get across.
To help with our story telling abilities, this meetup is a collective effort for everyone to work towards this single story.

 
The story: “Getting ready for work”

Everyone has their own ritualistic habits in order to get ready for work. Some people sing in the car to psych themselves up. Others need their morning cup of coffee. Others rely on headphones to delay the inevitable dread of the corporate environment. I want all of us to go out and capture this to the best of our ability.

    • jason f.

      Once enough people have gathered, we will group off into pairs or threes. We will try to group people to help everyone get some great street photography for this assignment.

    We might get pouring rain tomorrow morning, a great chance to spot people ducking for cover. Would suggest anyone to dress accordingly, possiblely with spare dry clothing. Would be nice if have something to cover your camera and a towel to dry it up. My two cents.
