Street Photography and a new site: FreePhotoResources

As mentioned below I spend a great deal of time searching for new things related to photography. I came across this site last night called FreePhotoResources. One of their newest, top articles is on street photography (which I think is a well constructed article discussing Street Photography). Street photography is a fun way of shooting. When I am not working on a project or shooting a job for a client, I often turn to the streets to make photographs. I love photographing people and doing so in ways that engage the viewer. Its a way of using people to interest people in my photographs. Shooting street photography requires a great deal of intuitiveness. You have to be able to connect with people and know what they are going to do. You have to be able to anticipate their next move. Some times you only have 1/125th of a second to be able to capture what they are doing and what it is that you see interesting.

Here are a few examples of some street photography that I did when I was in New York City.
