TheWondrous.com had a very interesting post about street photography featuring women. Ladies with interesting backgrounds to make things more interesting. Every photo speaks for itself.
Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment. On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with. In the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture in Europe and North America, and elsewhere to a somewhat lesser extent.
Street photography has been made with equipment as varied as cellphone digicams to large 4×5 film press cameras. Even the Diana and Holga ‘toy’ film cameras have been employed, sometimes with prize-winning results. The “classic” street photo camera has been the 35 mm Leica range finder. The attributes praised by Leica users define a canonical set of features desired in street photography equipment.
