How to observe the street


Learn how to observe as a photographer, learn how to observe in the street, find a decisive moment, tell a story with your photos, find geometric shapes, use juxtaposition, symettry, shoot in low speed, learn how to compose your photos​

You will receive a full day of Street Photography tuition with Miguelitor in Hong Kong.

A day shooting adiverse route of his choosing around Hong Kong and will cover the following theory:

​Symettry

Symmetry is all around us and has always been associated with beauty, so why not use it? Depending on how you are holding the camera and how much of a scene you choose to show, you can strengthen or weaken the symmetric properties of an object or scene.

​​​Geometric Shapes

When composing an image, the addition of geometric patterns or basic shapes such as lines, circles, squares and triangles can add structure and organization within that photograph. It can help the photographer convey an idea or feeling to the viewer. The overall purpose of this is simple, to keep the viewers eye within the frame of the image. The viewer may perceive only a “pleasing image” without ever knowing or asking why

​​Slow Shutter Speed

long exposures can add another dimension to still photography—the dimension of time. You can take what would be a static image captured at a fast shutter speed and transform it into something dynamic. An effective tool for artistic interpretation, it’s also fun and, with just a little practice, easy to do with ordinary photo gear.

​​Vanishing point

Vanishing point is, of course, only one of many ways you can add perspective to an image. Lets show depth and distance, when you find a really great set of converging lines in your scene, don't fail to take advantage of them

​​Self-Portrait

I did not mean Selfie, I mean SELF-PORTRAIT, more consideration, more composition, more psychological insight and aesthetic care

​​​Story

Telling a story with your photography, street or otherwise, elicits an emotion in the viewer, is memorable. Tell a story in your photos!
