L.A. Photo Curator “Street Shooting”
Dean says, “This call is looking for photographs taken on the street, in Los Angeles or around the world. What is street photography? It is candid moments on the street or in any other public place such a grocery store, a mall, or a park. It is chance encounters and random incidents in public places. Street photography generally focuses on people and everyday life and shares the same ethics as photojournalism and documentary photography, meaning nothing is set up or changed in the digital darkroom. Street portraits are also considered to be street photography and like photojournalism, portraits are the only type of photograph that can be set up.
Some street photographers shoot in an artful way, with shadows and light. Others shoot like a newspaper photographer, concentrating on moments among people on the street. Don’t just photograph someone walking down the sidewalk. The genre is saturated with these images. Look for unusual locations and aesthetically pleasing backgrounds. The background content is as important as the subject. The combination of the two makes the picture. Do not photograph anyone less fortunate than yourself, meaning no photos of homeless people unless you can make a strong social statement.”
