Street Photography for Beginners - Take the Gloves Off

The Golden Rule has finally been put to bed and now it is time to take the gloves off.  You have worked hard at practicing all the foundational skills that make up a great street photograph. 

Now is the time to get out there and put all that practice to good use.  Just remember your foundation while you are out there!

Now that the old Golden Rule is over, it is time to add a new Golden Rule for your street photography:  HAVE FUN

Nothing could be more important than you having fun with you street photography.  This will keep you focused and pushing yourself to continually improve your street photography skills. 

Don't spend too much time examining the photos of the street masters, but rather spend your time making your own photographs.  Learn what type of images you like, and develop your own style.  At the end of the day, the only person that needs to like your photographs is you. 

As you move along your journey towards becoming a better street photographer, by all means study the masters, but always remember you are your own artist.

This marks the end of our journey towards becoming a better street photographer.  I hope you enjoyed the journey and continue to have fun pursuing and develop your skills as a street photographer. 

My next post will cover one additional optional skill you can work on if you feel like it.
