FOTO FRIDAY, August 25th, 2023
LOCATION: Old Strathcona and Whyte Avenue
Yes, all Fringe events start after noon. You might think that your neighborhood isn’t an interesting spot for street photography. While that could well be true, it’s probably more interesting than you realize. It’s also one of the best places you can get started in street photography, purely because you probably know the area like no other.
MEET UP: Old Strathcona Farmers’ Market
10310 83 Ave NW
CHALLENGE: Context is everything.
Street photography is easy, isn’t it? I think that’s why it attracts so many. Other genres like wildlife, landscape, or studio work take time and effort. Not so for street photographers. Just go into town, set your camera to monochrome, shoot away at people and label it street photography. Anyone can do it.
Many do, and this is where the ordinary images come from.
Good street photography needs more. It deserves more. If you do your own street photography without much thought, you probably have a fair amount of room for improvement too.
LUNCH: Lots of options.
