In artistic street photography, there are certain aspects to consider. In this video, professional photographer, Ian Plant, shows you several and how they apply in creating a memorable image.

He explains that the three most important aspects are composition, light, and moment. You will learn techniques to visually entice the viewer into the scene, how to capture mixed lighting that includes the contrast of light and shadows, and how to look for that key moment when your visual elements all come together in a single exposure. You will also learn about shooting in color versus black and white.

Join pro shooter, Ian Plant, for a discussion and demonstration of artistic street photography.
