Street Photography - The Artful CandidBy Liz Masoner, About.com Guide to Photography
|Street photography has a long history and has made many photographers famous. Gary Winograd, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Mary Ellen Mark, and so many others showed us everyday life in new ways. What is it about street photography that so captures the imagination? The best way I can describe street photography is "the artful candid." Street photography isn't posed (at least not by the photographer). Street photography is all about found situations and subjects but they are photographed in an artful way. This type of photography, so often misunderstood even by many its practitioners, is about creating art out of everyday scenes. More>|

Photographers: These were taken with my Nikon D-7100 and my new Nikor 18-300 mm lens. The lens enables me to take candid photos of bikers from a distance without risking getting beaten up. This is the perfect lens for street photography.
Note how the lens functioned for the artsy photos of vegetables.
