Why I love street photography


It all starts with a normal digital camera and than I discover street photography. It was a normal day, I was surfing the net when suddenly I come across images that represented ordinary moments on the streets, with or without people. I was amazed  of this genre of photography, I made some researches about it and discovered that its name was street photography.

I searched all the stuff about it: images, photographers, and documents on how to make a great street photograph.

I was excited. But I had fear. Fear of shooting strangers, fear of their reactions, fear of being judged by other more talented street photographers and that I was not good at it.

I broke up all this thoughts, took my smartphone, went out on the streets, experimented, learned the rules of composition, learned to observe and still now, after more than a year shooting street photography, I am learning.

Every day I’m happy to have discovered photography and especially street photography because it gave me the opportunity to express myself.
