Cincinnati Street Photography and Beyond
Candid street photography has been a favorite style of taking pictures of moments in time. Since I often carry a camera, I like to take pictures of places, and people to document the location frozen in time. I seldom ever use flash photography for street captures. Great pioneers of flash documentary such as Jacob A. Riis slum photography works. Candid street documentary photo journalism.
There are several styles of candid and street type photography. Many are made to document the time and place of a location or person. These photo journalism captures moments in time that live on to remind people what life was like at that moment in life.
There are numerous times I have captured these moments. Travel overseas, and in and around where I live, makes for good candid street photography.
Moments in time people, places, and things are all styles of candid street type photography. From an action, to a still life of the place and moment in time memories.
