As we slowly begin to dive back into everyday life and business, we would like to see how you would candidly photograph life and human nature. This month’s challenge is: Street Life.


Your task: Record everyday life in a public place.


Street photography is all about exploring the world around you and sharing the insights and stories that you find and see through candidly capturing life in public areas. When taking street life photography try to come out of your comfort zone and learn more about other people. The best way to create an amazing street photo is to capture a fleeting moment of deeper story and emotion. You can try to go on a nice walk and pay attention to some interesting scenes around you and be quick to capture them while on the more. Find some busy locations and roam around. Or you can purposely find a nice spot and wait until someone interesting walks into your frame. Open your eyes and think fast so you don’t miss some amazing opportunities. Look up or down, not just straight in front of you. Go into a building and look for a window view, find a bridge or a raised walkway to change your perspective, or go sit on the top deck of a bus. There are so many different locations you could scout for creating great street life photography.


And contrary to its name, street photography does not have to be done on the streets. In reality, it can be practiced everywhere, anywhere you’ll find people doing their thing. Street photography can take place in any space that’s open to the public, including indoor settings. Think of places like shopping malls, hotel lobbies, restaurants, cafes, stations, airports, offices, churches, museums, galleries, hair salons, theaters, gas stations… And the list goes on. Even if you don’t live in a big city, that shouldn’t hold you back from starting your street photography adventures. Just because you live in an unpopulated area doesn’t mean you can’t do street photography. You can depict the reality of stillness and emptiness and give us insight into what it’s like to live where you are.


Now it’s your turn – record everyday life in your surroundings. Remember to be respectful of the people you photograph and if needed ask their permission. But also have fun exploring!
