Street Photography

Saturday 02 March
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.

Among them is the story of the keeper and his wife who, in 1912, decided to take advantage of the booming tourist business at the York beaches. They developed a lively business ferrying tourists across to the island and giving tours. The trade grew so lively that the light was neglected, and the keeper fired. Another keeper lived on the island with his 19-pound (8.6 kg) cat w

    Title or Location: American Kestrel at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy
    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

    I had shot the sunrise at Horseshoe Bend the same morning and was hoping for a blazing sunset at this location after talking to the other photographers present at sunrise. Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.
