Ten (+1) tips to improve your street skills!

When I asked on Instagram what you would like to read on this blog one of the most frequent answer was: tips to improve the skills in street photography. So... Here we are family!

1) Don't hesitate. Photography is the carpe diem medium, if you loose your chance it will never come back.

2) Never leave your camera at home. Live in symbiosis with your camera and you'll improve your technical skills!

3) Get close. As Robert Capa said.

4) Be respectful as much as you can. And don't forget to smile.

5) Tell stories. There is a difference between a good photo and a beautiful photo: a good photo always tells a story.

6) More books, less gears. If is true that we are what we eat, we also shoot what we've seen. A good visual diet is necessary to develop a good photography.

7) Talk to strangers. Listen to their stories, everybody has something to say!

8) Wear dark clothes. It sounds stupid, but it works!

9) Be patient. Don't be afraid of boredom, sometimes the best is yet to come.

10) Take risks. Sometimes the "don't give a fuck" philosophy is useful.

10+1) Be generous with who's trying to help you :) and don't hesitate to send me an email. I'm always happy to talk to strangers!
