Better an asked portrait or a stolen photo? It depends.
I do not think there is a definition of the best way in absolute but rather a mix of internal and external factors that determine the best choice from time to time.
A few days ago a strange thing happened: I asked an old man in a historical market here in Rome to pose for an environmental portrait, and after I photographed him I was asked to view the photo.
Is 50mm lens really the king of versatility?
There are those who say that 50mm is the most versatile lens on the planet. I think it’s the 35mm instead.
With a 35mm I can go out of my home really light and take photos of street, landscape, reportage, environmental and studio portraits.
If I had to choose only one lens in my kit to carry on my trips, it would be 35mm. Oh damn it… I already do it!
Street photography is perhaps the highest form of free interpretation of what is today’s society.
The way to achieve moments of real life is always a free choice of the photographer but with experience we understand which lenses are most suitable than others.
Street photography or, more generally, reportage style photography, involves and thrill photographer and the observer capturing unique, funny, tense moments of a fraction of daily life.
