What kind of gear do you need for street photography? In this video, professional photographer Ian Plant shows you the street photography equipment he takes along to capture memorable images.
Ian says that almost any kind of camera will work, but he prefers his DSLR full frame. He recommends carrying three or four lenses, a wide-angle zoom, a normal-range zoom, and a telephoto. While some shooters go handheld, Ian often uses a tripod. Whether you shoot buildings, bridges, cars, or people on the street, you will learn to be prepared.
