Street tips – Buy a small camera and carry it everywhere…


“Buy a small camera, and try to carry it everytime with you….” Remember, everytime is perfect for taking street photos… Great moments are happening everywhere, everytime around you. Sometimes It’s too hard to carry big camera all the times you move around. There are may famous street photographer use small light great like compact or even iPhone in the street all the times. For inspirational you can check out the works of Misho Baranovic‘s street shot by iPhone. Always try to focus on the moment you capture, not in the gear you have. End of the day, the moment you captured is matter, not the equipment’s.

Being a corporate personnel I can realize that it’s too hard to go out and shot full day. Sometimes I plan for weekend but unexpected event’s poped up and ruin my plan. SO, if you want to shot street you have to take every single opportunity you have. Carrying a small light camera everytime can give that opportunity. You can carry you camera in your car, your office, anywhere you want. There is a great street photographer Lee Friedlander. He always carry his camera in his car and used his car’s window frame as a natural frame. You can watch his very inspirational project done from inside his car: America by Car. I got so inspired by seeing his works and his perspective. Watching and analyzing great photos of great photographer’s  will help you to improve your seeing in depth the moment’s around you.
