I started becoming interested in street photography in January of this year. In an attempt to find my niche, I’d dabbled in nature photography and long exposures during 2017, but it was visiting London’s Lumiere and being more interested in the people enjoying the light installations than the installations themselves that really sparked my passion for street photography. I’m constantly learning and evolving, always excited to get out and take new images. I’m less excited about the nights drawing in earlier as we get closer to winter though. I’ve realised over the past couple of weeks that I don’t enjoy night photography all that much. This is mainly due to my bias of composition over technicalities. The street moves too quickly to have to spend time stressing over whether my settings are optimised for the constantly dwindling light. It’s possible over the coming months that I’ll adopt more of a fisher mentality than my current hunter one. It’s already begun, which is why I’ve been posting more shots of night time windows recently. I’ve no trip into Central London planned this week - instead I’m going to check out the seasonal shift in Black Park tomorrow and see whether I can produce some nature shots superior to the ones I took last year. Will ten months of street photography have changed the way I document nature?
