Get ready to hang out with a phenomenal street shooter in this month’s interview – Rinzi Ruiz. Rinzi is based in LA and has been practicing street photography for more than a decade now. He’s a graphic designer by trade, a wedding and portrait photographer AND a Fuji X photographer.
With all that experience you’d probably imagine that Rinzi heads out to the streets fearlessly and boldly every time, always capturing the perfect image. In reality, Rinzi and I spent a lot of time talking about how to deal with anxiety on the street – something many (if not most) of us struggle with. He often references “Street Zen” and has some really practical suggestions on how to calm the voices in your head with deep breathing practices.
Not only that, Rinzi had a lot to share as a graphic designer about how light and shadow guide your viewer’s eye and how you can be consistent about what work you choose to display publicly.
There’s a lot to learn from Rinzi, so get to listening by clicking on the audio player below:
