Join Steve Simon for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Waiting for a subject in a pool of light, part of 5-Day Photo Challenge: Street Photography.
- Hey, Street Shooters. Welcome to the first Street Photography Challenge. For this challenge, I'm going to ask you to find the light. I mean, we know as photographers, it's often all about the light. And when you're on the street shooting, I'm always looking for good light because I know good light is going to make great photographs. So the challenge for you is to, wherever you are, go seek out some good light, wherever a nice pool of light that's illuminating something, and then just stay there and let the scene develop. Let people and things go by, and see what you're going to get.
And I guarantee you, if you wait long enough, you're going to get something good. So get out there and start shooting. I'm going to look for a pool of light here. I know I'm going to find something. There's plenty of great light, so you'll see my solution in the next movie.
