We’re lucky to be surrounded by talented people, and we had to ask our friend Felix to whip up a photography guide for our readers. His photos are always amazing and we wanted to know how he lands that perfect shot – we hope his post inspires you to take photos of your own. Enjoy!
Three years ago, when I bought my first “nice” camera, I had no idea which direction I wanted to take with it. I experimented with nature photography, took a lot of bad pictures, tried out event photography, took more bad pictures, attempted lifestyle photography, and took even more bad pictures. Finally, tens of thousands of bad pictures later, I started to slowly figure out what kind of photography I enjoyed, what kind I was good at, and what kind I still needed to work on.
Now, three years later, I’m still trying to develop a signature “style” in my photographs, whatever that means. I’ve had mild success in different areas, but there is one photographic genre that continues to both excite and scare me: street photography. In the simplest terms, it means taking pictures of stuff in urban areas. People, pets, graffiti walls, storefront windows, cafe interiors, cars, street signs, and probably a combination of the above.
