Let It Snow

For this winter assignment, your brief is to experiment with the challenges and creative possibilities presented by snow. Snowfall can simplify the landscape, reducing it to a series of photogenic shapes, while disguising artificial objects or hiding ugly features. Virgin snow and hoar frost clinging to every branch and twig can create magical conditions. ...

Follow Me

How many times have you seen someone interesting coming towards you, only to react too slowly and miss the moment? Well, there's no need to kick yourself and abandon the situation. We all know that "stalking" can have unpleasant connotations, but in the world of the street photographer it is a useful tool at our disposal....

Stormy Seas

Observing the raw power of nature can be a humbling experience and few things demonstrate that power as spectacularly as waves crashing onto the coast during a big storm. Capturing these moments can result in compelling images that contain beautiful patterns and textures. ...

Turn Back Time

Like other forms of photography, street photography has trends that come and go, but we perhaps most closely associate street photography with monochrome images shot in the 1 940s, 50s, or 60s. There is something about pictures from that era that we find fascinating, and when you mention "street photography" to most people, these are the images they think of first. ...

Chasing Rainbows

Who doesn't love a rainbow? They are a beautiful sight and their relative rarity gives them added appeal. They are formed when sunlight passes through rain, with the raindrops acting as tiny prisms-when light reflects off the drops, it is broken down into a spectrum. Rainbows appear directly opposite the sun and can be full circles, although we usually only see an arc. ...

Play the Waiting Game

Broadly speaking, there are two approaches to street photography: you can "capture" an image (the spontaneous, reactive approach) or you can "create" one. When you create an image, you are in control of how the image comes together, maybe selecting the background and deciding what elements we need to come into play to make it work. ...

Mysterious Mist

Mist will simplify the landscape, reducing it to a series of shapes, layers, and outlines. Your assignment is to capture its effect, and then to select your best single shot. Look for an obvious focal point to either isolate or use as an anchor for your composition-maybe a landmark, boat, animal, or shapely tree. Shooting from a lower level, down amongst the mist, can also produce stunning results....

Juxtapose!

When people think of street photography they often think of juxtaposition-artistic contrasts where we have two elements in an image which are opposed to each other. This has always been a big part of street photography-so much so that it's perhaps in danger of becoming a cliche. ...

Heavy Weather

The saying "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing" could be your motto for this assignment. The idea is simply to head out and take some creative shots in bad weather. Of course, "bad weather" will mean different things to different people, but for most landscape photographers it is probably any conditions where the light doesn't create some relief on the landscape....
