The Elements Of A Good Street Photography

If you like street photography then this is for you.
Learn from the movies, movies have to be made in a certain way to attract people and to keep their attention, if they fail in this then the movie will be boring.
We all have different interests in movies, most women (and i say most) like romantic movies, and most men like action movies with a lot of bullets, fights and racing cars, oh and some sex to, so what does that have to do with street photography you ask, well the answer is that it has to do a lot, just like in the movies your photos have to have some element of interest for your audience, most street photographers take boring pictures and that is because there are no good elements in the photo, there is no action no drama, no sex or romance, no anger or happiness or sadness, and the subjects sometimes are lacking a strong character, a smiling person is no big deal, an angry gang member giving you the finger is a very good photo, a biker lighting a cigar is a good photo.
In other words if your scenes do not have the necessary elements don’t even bother to take the photo, it will be a boring and empty photo, oh and by the way, a technically perfect photo will not make it a good photo, it could be a technically perfect empty boring photo.
