23 Quick Tips for Street Photography or Your Next Photo Walk

23 Quick Tips for Street Photography or Your Next Photo Walk

The guys over at the Cooperative for Photography (COOPH) have some good quick tips from Thomas Leuthard for you. If you are planning on doing some street photography this summer, joining a photo walk, or even doing travel photography – apply this tips to those genres and have some fun. Let’s see the tips:

My faves are:

  • #2 control your camera remotely: I never even thought of that but will work great with my Fuji X-T1
  • #10 get down low: another thing cameras like the Fuji X-T1 do well with a tilting screen.
  • #13 shoot water as a slow shutter speed: this is starting to sound like an ad for the Fuji X-T1, but I love the fact my camera is weather resistant (WR) and I’ve stood in the rain, and taken a direct hit from an ocean wave and it withstands it and keeps going! Read more on this camera here.
  • #17 shadows make great photos: see How to Use Shadow and Contrast to Create Dramatic Images for more on that
