Street photography is a great way to get creative with angles, lighting and people. It’s hard to define but it’s essentially about documenting everyday life and recording unexpected moments. The most compelling and powerful images are often of a subject you’re unfamiliar with and taken in the street.
They don’t need to be shot in the street though, you can also take great street photography at places like the airport, the supermarket, the beach or on public transport. It also doesn’t have to feature a person, but the best street photography generally does.
Whether you’re taking a walk around your well-trodden neighbourhood, or pounding the pavements in a brand new city, get out and about and start snapping. We’ve got some tips on taking the best photos you can in a city so have a look if you need some ideas. Then whatever photos you take, share them with #MonthlyMoments and #albelli on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
