Before you judge this landscape photography video as not street photography related, spend 2:50 minutes watching it.
There, that wasn’t so bad, was it? There are a few things I really liked about this video that I think are ultra useful for street photographers everywhere:
- Try new things. You can always learn from doing something new and stepping out of your comfort zone.
- Don’t limit yourself. Just because your main passion is street photography doesn’t mean you have to be anti-other genres. When you widen out you might just discover a hidden skill you never knew you had.
- Team up. Some people say experience is the best teacher, but I think you can learn a whole lot from other people. Next time you meet a fellow photographer you hit it off with, why not propose working on a project together? Or just heading out to shoot together? I betcha you’ll learn a thing or two, and have fun in the process.
Additionally, we get a lot of questions from readers and non-subscribers alike who wonder what they need to do to get published. There are a ton of great ideas in this video.
- Have you ever branched out to try a whole new genre of photography? Or maybe just a new sub-genre of street? If so, document the process, the challenges, the rewards, the lessons learned. This is a great topic for an article about a specific photography project.
- Have you ever teamed up with a person or a group to do a street photography project? Tell us what it was like, what you enjoyed the most, what it was like to work as a team vs working solo. Show us the images you came away with. Another top-notch project article idea.
- Have you ever noticed your photographs in one genre affect the way you do street photography? How? Why? This is a great topic for a technique article.
- Do you have a favorite piece of gear that you can’t live without when you hit the streets? Describe it, review it, show us what it can do. This would make for an interesting gear piece.
And now that you feel inspired to do something amazing, quit surfing the internet and get out there and shoot! 😉
