THE NEW STREET PHOTOGRAPHER'S MANIFESTO Tanya Nagar. ILEX PRESS
A much lighter - and in many ways, informal introduction to street photography, it covers the basics, in a light, almost entertaining way. There is less emphasis on the "Who" of street photography, and more on the "Hows". Perhaps a little too much on on the how. THere are sections of Depth of field, Aperture, etc., and one is left wondering if you should perhaps already know all this BEFORE venturing out into this field.
After a light and entertaining "Photography 101 style introduction, it finishes with a showcase of several photographers. The ones which caught my attention are:
ANTONIO NAVARRO WIJKMARK (www.wijkmarkphoto.com) has an adaptable style that I enjoy, and would be adaptable to almost any urban environment.
DANNY SANTOS II (www.dannyst.com) also has a style that captures my attention.
In all, it seems to lose its way by going a little too much on the technical side of things. Personally, I feel that if you don't know Aperture, cropping, etc., you should get a "digital photography 101" book, and then jump into street once you've mastered the fundamentals.
Well. Here goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
