Quote:How about a link as well

Why post links - just pop the video straight into your post







any technical reason why the video won't maximise?

Quote:Isn't street photography just photography for those who can't find a decent landscape ?

Tongue

They are to me - where as my street photography is just full of people I don't know and who cares about that?

I see very few 'street' scenes that are emotional and I see some exceptionally emotional landscapes.

I'm sure you've got a point but I'm just not sure what it is..

well...you said "street photography is just full of people I don't know and who cares about that?"...obviously people who enjoy `street photography' care about that...it's all about human interaction and what other people do with their lives that (to me) is the interest. I'm not saying I care about them any more or any less, just interested. Smile

Street photography for me is a chance encounter. A quick capture. A slice of life, hopefully interesting in some way. Being out and about and maybe capturing a fleeting story if I'm lucky.

I think people like looking at other people and street stuff is so suited to b/w too. I find that very appealing having cut my teeth on TMax 400 and TriX. I like to do the
odd landscape and other things but I'm not one to sit around all day waiting for the light or having to do lots of planning.

I`ve been at it for thirty odd years.


Quote: Where have you seen street photography being described as the most basic form of photography?

Sit back and think about it

Firstly its not a genre, its a style and a way of working.



Been at what exactly? Talking garbage? If you've been doing street photography for thirty odd years, why are you asking stupid mocking questions and making patronising statements on my thread? And why are you trying to say it's not a genre? Who the hell cares if its a genre. Is 'Digital Manipulation' a genre? Is 'Humour/Fun' a genre? I didn't ask if it was a genre. My original post asked whether it's a recognised form of photography on this site. For someone with 30 years experience, I would have hoped for more constructive responses than cheap attempts to display knowledge and score points.

And your response to my question is insulting. Sit back and think about it? I had already done that, and concluded that your general comments on here are confusing, argumentative, dogmatic and lacking in credence. Hence I asked you the question about where you had seen street photography being described as the most basic form of photography, because I have not seen anyone describe it as such (apart from yourself). If you have a valid reference for this opinion then I would like to hear it, but as it stands it just sounds like you're a wind up merchant.

If street photography wasn't a recognised form of photography no one would be posting on this site? That doesn't make any sense.
