Street Photography Quick Tip 16 – Capture what captures attention
My Street Photography Quick Tips are short, easy to read and easy to use tips that I think could help you while shooting in the streets.
When shooting Street Photography, I’m always on the lookout for photographs that have the potential to make the viewer stop and think about the story behind it, before swiping on to the next image.
In this photo, the contrast between the bright face and the darkness of the window behind should capture the attention of the viewer. Then comes text, which is also something we more or less automatically scan. “Order here”. What is it that can be ordered from this girl? Also, the hand written sign about not accepting American Express cards tends to attract attention more then the logo cards of the other credit cards.
How do you see it?
