11 Eye Catching Street Photography Shots

2nd December 2016

Recently we challenged our community to hit the streets and tell us a tale of what they saw through an image. We were blown away by the quality of the images, each one showing a unique angle of streets from all around the world. 

Street photography is all about being an observer of your surroundings using the people around you to create stories through your imagery.

“This can be enhanced by looking for repetition of patterns, texture, contrasting light and shadows and with the use of motion.” Scott adds, “The images below all have these strong characteristics, great use of composition, perspective use of dramatic lighting and texture.”
