There is no better way to Capture day to day life than Street Photography. And while I do not usually pursue the craft, I do love it.
Some people might think that Street Photography in Europe is pretty much Illegal thanks to new privacy laws like the EUGDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation), but it its not. For example, if people only appear as an accessory to the scene or are plain out unrecognizeable, you should be fine.
When I do Street Photography, I generally pay attention to the criteria listed above. Not just because I, like everyone else do not want to get in trouble, but mostly because I prefer Street Photography were people are not the focal point of the Image.
Street Photography is a great way to show foreign places. People behave and dress differently everywhere. But again: I do not like to focus on single persons, but the Scene in general. I do not want to showcase the individual, I want to focus on their surroundings, if that makes any sense.
I also generally prefer to do Street Photography in Black & White to symbolize that we are all different, but in the end are all the same. We are all humans just just going about our day to day lives, wondering about what might happen tomorrow.
I do Street Photography to capture Travel and to capture Life. I do not do Street Photography to exploit People for being in a certain spot at a certain time. But I do love Street Photography as an art form.
