Street Photography - How I Keep Myself Sharp

Believe it or not, photography is a lot like sports exercise. If you leave it for too long, your muscles get flabby and you have to recondition them to get back into peak performance once again.

I try to keep my photographic skills well-practiced so that when it's time to roll for an assignment, I am in peak form and able to deliver. How do I do this, you ask?

Well one of my ways is Street Photography.

PS: I also condition myself physically as well all year just to ensure I'm in top shape for all the wedding and events and documentary photosessions that I do. It can be physically draining, especially if you're looking at 8-14 hour days!

 It was the yellow that really highlighted this image for me. The shirt to the left and the basket to the center-right (plus it's reflection) ... oh, and the gentleman's yellow hat show off a cascade of this color all throughout the image.

 I love reflections :)

 Trying to find the right moment to get everything together in one photographic frame, especially when it's all moving very quickly, is tough. I do this around the streets that I walk and bring it then to all the weddings and sessions that I do.

 Whether it be weddings, streets, projects or whatever, when it comes to photography, I'm looking for light, shadows, shape and also a subject. I try to tell a story in a frame.
