    C&C on my lighting with flash

    Looks pretty good! You can try to make one side a little bit darker (by lowering the power of the speed light on that side). This could make the photo a bit more interesting. Generally I would suggest to just try different things... find out what you like! Cheers, Andreas

    Hello, I'm a complete newbie

    Hi, sounds like you have a good plan! I fully agree with your comment to invest more into courses. So go ahead: Buy any entry level Canon Camera (or any other brand) you like, add the 50mm 1.8 lens and learn! Learn by investing into classes, learn by taking photos! And don't get distracted...

    Help me learn new techniques?

    Hi Skiermike, Obviously difficult to give you a full training, but let me give you my top 3 tips: 1. Focus on your subject - Get close to what you want to photograph. If you think you are close - get closer! Get rid of unneeded elements! 2. Use rule of 3rds - Make sure you NOT put horizon in...

    Tips on photographing cars drifting?

    - get as close as you safely can - try unusual angles if possible - very deep, very high - get on the inside of longer curves - practice panning somewhere before - e.g. next to a public road - get a map of the event, try to talk to the people that run the show so they can give you tips what the...

    Yup - like it too! Maybe both our photos are a bit cliche, but they are not bad and they are street photography 100%! And @sashbar: Your's is even in color :-) Referring back to my original topic of this threat.

    Why is most street photography black and white?

    Agree. But its sometimes difficult to tell. Just posted a new street photography photo in my blog where its not so clear: I actually took it as a snapshot (not really planned, I did not wait for an hour or so to get the right shot...), but I actually would classify as a "street photography"...

    Why is most street photography black and white?

    Thats true! On the other hand: If then people like it... its fine. I guess it is just overall difficult to define what is "good" street photography and what is "bad" street photography. As it is difficult to articulate that for other photography genres.
