"One of the great things about a city is that more things are happening, even within a small neighborhood, at any moment than any human can comprehend. Photography allows us to freeze one of those moments and study all of the small dramas that were taking place."

Philip Greenspun

Below is the Wikipedia definition of street

Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches, malls, political conventions and other settings.

Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment. On the other hand, much street photography takes the opposite approach and provides a very literal and extremely personal rendering of the subject matter, giving the audience a more visceral experience of walks of life they might only be passingly familiar with. In the 20th century, street photographers have provided an exemplary and detailed record of street culture in Europe and North America, and elsewhere to a somewhat lesser extent.

Many classic works of street photography were created in the period between roughly 1890 and 1975 and coincided with the introduction of portable cameras, especially small 35mm, rangefinder cameras, most famously the Leica, as used by Henri Cartier-Bresson, among others.

This group aims to support these principles but acknowledges that the genre needs to grow and expand to reflect modern life and technology. The group respects the choices of the artist in their choice of subject and use of equipment. We do not insist you use the equipment or techniques of the past pioneers but encourage you to develop your own.

In defining our guidelines it is probably easier to say what is not accepted.

1. No DA watermarked images.

2. No nudity.

3. No posed shots (unless taken of random strangers in a street environment).

4. No pictures of streets unless there are obvious people within shot.

5. No photomanipulation

These are the basic rules, however administrators are free to interpret them appropriately.

Our message: Have fun, be creative and learn from your fellow members.
