Task 6 – Street Photography

Street photography has a long tradition but shooting strangers can make you, as the photographer, feel rather uncomfortable. This is worth overcoming however as the technique can be lead to engaging images and can significantly develop your skills as a photographer. – Paul Hazell

Within this task, I have begun to focus on the more urban, candid stylings of photography. Street photography is the capture of unmediated and random chance encounters. From this, I took to the streets of Worcester City, to capture some unique and interesting street photographs.

My main focus was the manipulation of black and white photography, and the use of pigeons as my main subject.

I felt that the specific species of bird gave off stronger characteristics and emotions, when compared to the ‘motionless’ people in the city centre.
