Street photography is the study of the human condition, relying heavily on making candid photos of people in public places and capturing stories about people and the places they live and gather. But even more than that, street photography involves capturing ephemeral moments when subject matter, mood, composition, and light come together to create a meaningful or artistic photograph. The challenge of street photography — and its unique appeal — is finding a way to turn the mundane things we see every day into art.
In this series of videos, professional photographer Ian Plant takes you to the streets on a visual journey, teaching you the fundamentals of street photography — exploring not just the technical aspects, but also the artistic philosophies that are at the core of his creative photography process. You’ll get detailed lessons related to equipment, use of light, composition, working with people, and mastery of the moment. What’s more, you get an inside look at a working pro’s artistic process, learning how he transforms ordinary subjects into art. It’s almost like being on a photo workshop with Ian, for a fraction of the price!
