What I love about street photography

Untitled - 20-10-2013 - By James "Jingles" Ingles

I love street photography because:

Street photography is challenging. Out on the street it is chaos, you have little to no control over the situation and how things happen. You can’t make things happen the way you want them to happen. You have to try and make order out of the chaos with light, time, and your camera as the only tools. In street photography you have to be able to anticipate things that will happen then be fast enough to capture the image. In product, studio, fashion, and other types of photography you have a lot more control and tools to give you control over the situation than you do in street photography. In some ways other genres of photography is a lot easier than street photography. It is the challenge of street photography that I enjoy.
