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?

  1. It’s interesting that she looks so deep in thought. Almost like you can order advice…or that she’s Lucy from Charlie Brown setting up her psychiatrist booth. lol.

  2. Hi Marcus! I love this photograph and you reminded me of something. I just bought a compact camera this weekend so that I could start doing some projects- maybe lurking in the shadows to take street photographs with my new, light and indiscreet camera. haha! Anyway, reading this reminded me that I need to go through your blog and start reading up on your tips! I love the idea of the text in the image! Thank you for sharing… 🙂

  3. What grabbed my attention was the serious look on her expression …. she is thinking about something very serious and her forehead is very busy for sure. Great catch.
    One question, are these pictures shot aiming through the viewfinder of the camera or just candidly from waist level?
