Street photography is a genre of photography that captures everyday life and people in public places.

It often involves candid shots, where the subjects are unaware that they are being photographed. To capture great street photographs, there are a few key things to keep in mind:

Be observant: Pay attention to the world around you and look for interesting scenes or people. Keep an eye out for moments that might make for a great photo.

Be patient: Street photography often involves waiting for the right moment to capture an image. Take your time and don’t rush your shots.

Be respectful: When taking photos of people, it’s important to respect their privacy and personal space. Always ask for permission if you want to take a close-up shot of someone.

Practice composition: Pay attention to the framing and composition of your shots. Consider the rule of thirds, leading lines, and other composition techniques to create compelling images.

Play with light and shadows: Street photography often takes place in natural light, which can create interesting shadows and contrasts. Experiment with different lighting conditions to create unique images.

These tips helped participants at the Little India walkabout to capture great street photos.
