Photographing at the Speed of Life

“Street photography means having to deal with time, which requires the photographer to quickly notice the various details, elements and factors, that are present in the potential subject. The photographer must then determine which of the elements are to be included or excluded from the frame. The effective organization of the various details and factors is determined by accurate framing and precise timing of the shot. It requires the photographer to abide by some very definite rules. No posing or setting up shots. Nothing easily done is worth much. It is photographing at the speed of life.”
John Free, social documentary/street photographer
