Street photography and how to capture those elusive shots, obviously number one is time spent out on the streets, looking for pay dirt (to use a gold prospecting analogy) and panning (photographing) for those elusive specs of gold, also a functioning camera helps a and a willingness to step out of your comfort zone.
I think one of the main ingredients for capturing interesting street photos (and really this applies to all photography) is what's going on in your head and how you approach your subject matter, that's the most important thing. Before you head out ask yourself how am I feeling, happy, gloomy, confident, anxious?
Humans are instinctive animals and very good at picking up on vibes, so the headspace you're in when you walk out onto the street will more than likely be picked up by those around you and this can be reflected in the types of photos you get or don't get. So pay attention to your approach, get the head space right, avoid creeping around it'll make you look suspicious, try to be upfront but not in peoples faces, this is a more honest approach, people pick up on it and respond accordingly. Take the time to practice this and you'll start getting shots you never thought you could. Street Photography Workshop - 21 October 2017
