Street Photography Quick Tip 6 – Shoot in a station

Have I mentioned that train- or metro stations are a great place to shoot Street Photography? Same as in airports, travelers in stations rushing too and from the trains are often much too busy to notice the photographer on the hunt, especially when you shoot with a small, inconspicuous camera or your phone. Set your camera to “P” mode and look for interesting scenes. Find yourself an interesting background and wait until the right subject arrives, as I did with this business traveler who rushed by my lens in front of the board with the train announcements.

If you want to play with motion blur to capture the dynamic of the rushing people, reduce your shutter speed to 1/10 sec which is a good starting point, as if you have a cam with good image stabilization or a calm hand you still can get the static scene acceptably sharp.
