Photography- Assignment 3Street Photography

+Street Photography

Street Photography captures people and places.

It captures photographs in the moment.(non staged)

The photographs represent relationships between people and their surroundings.

Photos are taken in public areas although the photos do not need to include people.

There is no prior arrangement, photos are taken unplanned and un-staged.

Nick Turpin is a street photographer with a bright colourful style of street photography. It is more uplifting than most street photographers work, which is why I like it. I found when researching most street photographers work was colourless and boring.

Nick Turpin photographs interesting areas of the streets for example busy London or NY as well as quiet park areas.

Street Photographer-Nick Turpin

He uses techniques such as matching colours where certain focus’s in the image have the same colour (bus and phone). He makes the most of the moment taking effective shots (2 cyclists passing each other makes it look like they’re together)

My own Shots


About it- I took this photograph in London incorporating a sign post with the iconic backdrop of one of the biggest UK attractions, the London Eye.

I manipulated the photo using photoshop. The photo was cropped and the brightness adjusted.


About it- I deliberately took this photo with the light behind Big Ben. This helped to create a silhouette effect with the sun giving good balance in the photograph. This photo has not been edited and was taken on my phone.


About it- I took this photograph in Carnaby Street. The photo is well balanced putting main focus on the Carnaby Street sign using the rule of thirds to balance the photo. I then adjusted the hue/saturation on Photoshop.


About it- This Photo was also taken in London. This photo is effective because of the reflections in the glass. I used photoshop to blur out the reflections to keep the focus in the centre of the photo. I also adjusted the vibrance.


About it- This photo demonstrates rule of thirds by making the street sign the main focus of the photograph and the sky background helps to balance the photograph.


About it- This photo also contains back light. It creates a silhouette effect and helps to make the photo dynamic.


About it- I found the original photograph fairly dull and boring to I manipulated it using photoshop by changing the threshold and filling in with relevant colours.


About it- Although this photograph is staged, the background of the photo makes an interesting street photograph with the bikes leading in a trail behind. So in this case the focal point of the photo is not the only interest of the photo.


About it- I took this photograph in Naples. It was taken in solfatara which didn’t smell too fresh. This photo has comical effects and has lots of space used.
