Wolf Marx, a member of the Australian Photography Judges Association from the Camberwell Camera Club gave a presentation on STREET PHOTOGRAPHY.

Here are the notes on his presentation.

Definition of Street Photography. – random activities in public places. Usually features people in chance encounters, un- manipulated and unaware. There should be GRACE.

Australian Law – no one has the right not to be photographed in a public place. Use commonsense and discretion.

Tips for better photographs
  1. Look for interesting locations and wait for interesting passers by
  2.  Go to political rallies, protests and public events.
  3. Try to avoid harsh light.
  4. Use small cameras for discrete shots.
  5. Use auto focus or hyperfocul length. There is an app for this “Set my Camera.”
  6. Use shutter priority 150/200th second.
  7. Prowl the streets.
Winner of the Judge’s award for Capture an idea June - light - was Alan Synnott. 

Highly Commended Ann Anstey and Phil Glowacki.

Winner of the Peer Review was Phil Glowacki. Highly Commended was Alan Cole.
