Street markets happen day and night and are filled with bustling crowds, fresh produce, and hand-made arts and crafts.

You can do detail shots of items for sale, or capture portraits in the crowd. Alternatively, try using long exposures to blur the crowd and really capture the hive of activity. Snap vendors interacting with customers, or the colors of the gazebos or fresh fruit and vegetables.

Play with black and white or work with contrasting light and shadows.

So, check out these inspiring pics by some of the dPS writers, have fun, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
