For me, street photography is one of the hardest skills to master, and the more you study the masters such as Henri Cartier Bresson the harder it seems to get. You have to try and capture a decisive moment that is composed well and tells a story, which means that you have to anticipate the event and prepare the shot in advance. My mind and hands are nowhere near quick enough to spot and take good street photography pictures, but it is always worth practicing – just be prepared to reject over 90% of them and reminisce over the ones you missed.
This collection of ‘Relationship’ photographs was taken over a the past two years!
