Here are some ways for you to do stunning street photography in a shorter space of time. Walking around with a camera in the street and taking the odd snap is the slow way to get results. This method could be called the how not get great results guide.

Try these 5 Fast ways to stunning street photography
- Have a plan to favour your chances of getting great pictures
- Decide on a location – where are things happening or the situation is constantly changing?
- Decide on the time of day – timing may be about lighting, action or another factor
- Be ready visually and technically, don’t faff about with your camera settings or chimp when you should be looking for pictures.
- Blend in to the background as much as you can, try not to be noticed
Wise words from a true master
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
Elliott Erwitt, Street Photographer
