We did get out into the streets of Katrineholm, Sweden, yesterday so my student got a chance to try shooting street photography. Of course my focus was on this kind of documentary photography as well. One of the many shots I got was this elderly woman shopping at a flee market in the city square.

Street photography

After working almost around the clock for four days now I feel it’s time to take the afternoon off and recharge the batteries a bit. Tomorrow, providing of course that the weather will allow it, I’ll be out and about with my “student”, my lovely fiancé whom is interested in learning my craft for which I love her even more, doing some street photography so she’ll get her hands a little dirty with this as well and can learn more.

Street photography isn’t really shooting streets, it’s capturing regular people in the public room doing what they’re doing there, regular people engaged in everyday activities and/or in everyday situations. This is basic documentary photography.
