The Candid Portrait: A Photographer’s Guide to Candid Street & Travel Photography is written for everybody who wants to learn how to create better portraits in the street.
There are lots of questions that photographers have when starting out in street photography. Is it safe? How do you take photos of people without them noticing? What lenses should you use? Do you need model release forms? What are your legal rights?
And most importantly – how do you make beautiful photos that capture the atmosphere and vitality of the street?
The Candid Portrait takes you on a journey through the world of street and travel photography. It explores the principles and concepts that will help you create stunning photos.
You need to be so familiar with the way your camera works that it becomes an extension of your eye. Once your camera ceases to get in the way you can focus on capturing the extraordinary moments that all street photographers search for.
Then you should get into the mindset of the successful street and travel photographer. The best photographers understand life on the street and how to connect with the people they meet.
The strongest photos are created when the you master the technical and emotional sides of street and travel photography.
