SPM Issue 2
Our Flickr group is off to a big start. During the first month we received many excellent submissions which made it difficult to choose our picks for this issue. Be sure to check out our Flickr Shooters of the Month and submit your own favorites to the group.
This month we have two featured photographer Vern McClish from Western Massachusetts and Mark Brereton from Stoke on Trent, England. You will hear Vern say in his interview that the most important thing a photographer can do is to document the world around him. Both of our featured photographers are good examples of that philosophy. Vern spent several years photographing the people of Appalachian Ohio in the 1970s and Mark continues to document life in his own town today. I encourage you to find some quiet time to listen to both of these interviews.
We also have a review of the new Fuji X100s from a street photographer’s perspective by Chris Gampat from Phoblographer.
Many photographers tell us that it’s difficult to decide which photos to keep and which to throw away after a shoot. In his article The Five Levels of Street Photography, Juan Jose Reyes gives us some excellent guidelines on how to edit your own work.
Street photography is often a solitary pursuit which makes it difficult to stay motivated and keep things fresh. Tristan Jud is back in this issue to give us some timely tips about how to fuel our creativity and motivation.
