To make photography part of your daily routine you need to form new habits. We’re all busy, but by carrying your camera with you at all times, you’ll get into the rhythm of thinking about photography and taking photos. This new habit will also confirm how important photography is in your life and how it fits in with your lifestyle #streetphotography
Many beginners deal with their fears by trying to conceal their camera. Being sneaky will make those around you feel uncomfortable and may increase your chances of an unwanted confrontation. Smile and be open about what you’re doing. By projecting positive and relaxed body language, you’ll reduce your risk of confrontations, and avoid looking like a creep in the process.
It’s good to have high expectations, but this can be disheartening when you’re not getting the results you want. The key is to forget about the outcome and focus on enjoying the entire process leading up to the photo. Take delight in connecting with the world and hold no expectations about the final result. Savour the journey - forget about the destination. #streetphotography
People are shocked when I tell them that the number of books I’ve read cover-to-cover can be counted on my fingers. After been diagnosed with dyslexia – more specifically, difficulties with tasks involving rapid processing of symbols – at the age of 10, I always felt hindered and frustrated in my studies at school. Reading and writing simple sentences continue to challenge me, so I find it easier to express myself through imagery. That's why photography is so important in my life. It gives me the voice I never had previously.
