Class Notes for Part-01 – Further Study Reading 1

On Eric Kim’s Blog Post: Why Shoot Street Photography?

I do not have much to say about this article except that I believe that it is right bang-on. Perfect. Well said.

I only have two small notes… one in that I have found that Street Photography also makes you a better photographer in general. With ‘ANY’ Genre. And, if you shoot in B&W, the skills required to shoot great B&W imagery will help you create better Color images.

My second note is from his statement

“Street photography gives you the opportunity to make yourself naked in front of others.”

OK, I do NOT recommend that lest you get arrested. I think it may have been a language thing where I assume, he meant to say, “Street photography gives you the opportunity to bare yourself to others.” Of which, I completely agree with.

Seriously, re-read the article. Take in EVERY line, EVERY statement. It’s all true. And, if you ever feel defeated, or need some encouragement or motivation, read it again!!
