Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 10 August
Downtown Hartford - 3pm - 2 Hours
Hartford Photography Group
Jahvon John
Street photography is a genre of photography that captures candid moments of everyday life in public places, such as streets, parks, and other urban areas. It often involves taking pictures of people, buildings, and objects in their natural environment, without any posing or staging.

Street photography has a rich history, with notable photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand, and Vivian Maier having made significant contributions to the genre. It requires a certain level of skill and patience to capture compelling images in the midst of the chaos and unpredictability of the streets.

Today, street photography continues to be popular among both amateur and professional photographers. With the advent of digital cameras and smartphones, it has become more accessible than ever before. However, there are still certain ethical considerations to keep in mind, such as obtaining permission from individuals before taking their photos and being respectful of people's privacy.

    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.
