Welcome to the first edition of Street Photography Magazine. We’re very excited about creating this new resource to help street photographers of all levels to share and learn from each other.
In this issue, we are pleased to feature London based urban photographer Ronya Galka. When you listen to her interview and view her work, her passion will be obvious. Ronya has shared some amazing images a compelling story so I encourage you to take some time and watch it.
Because this is our first issue we chose to focus on the basics. You will find an article about how to use a technique employed by the masters to help you create stronger compositions. In addition, Tristan Jud, a professional photographer and workshop instructor from Perth, Australia, shares his Quick Guide to Street Photography.
As camera phones continue to improve in quality and performance, they are rapidly becoming an important segment of street photography. For this reason we plan to dedicate at least one article in each issue to iPhoneography. We’re pleased to have a contribution from Edi Cuevas where he shows some of his recent work to illustrate his favorite street techniques with an smartphone.
Let’s face it, all photographers are interested in the latest gear. While we don’t dwell on it here, it’s always interesting to learn about new equipment for the street. One of the most interesting new street cameras introduced this year is the new Sony RX1. I was pleased that Peter Adams, a Silicon Valley-based commercial and editorial photographer, provided us with a review and some dynamite images to show it off.
I really hope you enjoy this issue and that you take away something that will help ignite your passion for shooting on the street.
