I have tried my hand at various types of photography, however before I started following some brilliant street photographers on Google+ I never tried it myself.
On a recent trip to Ireland I decided to try it out. I was travelling light and only had my Canon G12 with me. Even though It is a relatively compact camera I have been pretty impressed with the results it offers.
What I have not been impressed with, however, is my street photography. I know it is my first attempt and it is cruel to compare myself to people who have been doing it for years, however at this stage I really feel that my photos lack the necessary punch. I also felt I was getting stuck in a rut, using people’s motion to create interest in photos that would otherwise be quite mediocre.
Anyway, here is a selection of photos I took – B&W helps quite a bit, but I’m still not too sure. I need to go out into the streets with my DSLR to really reach a verdict though.
