There's something about StammyStam, you know you're one of the responsible for me startdoing Street photography. I still remember that reply, once, on FB:"Don't forget, street is a serious thing!... " So, not only I have tothank you for guiding me into the right path, but also for being such aninspiration to us all, with your talent and engaging effort, forpromoting Street Photography to the highest level in dA, and most ofall... for being there.Yeap, "Mr. Street", you're a great guy.- Nuno Canha -"Stam's work is a best practise of voluntary work proving how far you canreach doing something you are passionate about. One can not imagine theamount of work he has put into this. If there was a StreetPhotographers Award all categories, Stam would be the natural winner.Thereare many of us out there just taking all kind of stuff for granted.Stam has ben doing something. He is the true doer when it comes tostreet and the inspirati

A Filmie Team Feature35mm @ 35mmWhy 35mm is the focal length we recognize immediately and result so well?Well, first of all, allows capturing the right amount of contextual background when getting close to the subject, while with a 50mm lens on a full frame you’ll have to be almost on the other side of the street to get a similar result. The longer the focal length, more chances the image will look flat (keep in mind that on a dslr the use of the 24mm gives you 36mm - in average the magnification factor is 1x5 for Nikon, Sony and Pentax and 1x6 for Canon)It’s a fairly wide length for most situations, to capture an entire scene, but on the other hand it also makes you feel that you’re right there in action, when shooting close ups, making it ideal for shots at 2 or 3 meters away from the scene/subject. And in an urban environment one or t
Digi gallery submission guidelines: F(not)AQBy :iconmyraincheck: and :iconMARX77:How many times have you clicked on the "I accept" button after actually having read the terms & conditions all the way through?Not very often, huh?It's just one of those things most people (including myself) do without giving it a second thought.Now how many times have you actually read the rules and submission guidelines of DA groups before signing up for membership?Didn't think so.So even if you did, but do you still remember them?Different groups have different rules; some are easy to understand, while some require (at least) a PhD in rocket science and/or memory like an elephant.It's even easier to lose track, especially if you're a member of a hundred plus clubs.So what can we do about it?How can we, the Yard admins, help our members remember our group guidelines?This is where our wonderful admin, Mary - *myraincheck, and myself... ehm, came up with a brilliant idea to present a series of journals to help better explain our guideline
Our Admins Personal FavesWe asked our admins: "What is your personal fave from your OWN gallery and why?"The results are intriguing, informative and at times surprising :iconmarx77:My son and I were crossing a street through an alley in Al Diyafah - Dubai, when I saw the bicycle and immediately noticed that the blowing air current, along with the excess cargo of flattened and stacked cardboard boxes was making the front wheel rise up from the ground slightly and then descend once the wind subsided.I instinctively knew that something was about to go down - or up. So I asked my son to 'SLO' down: Stop, Look, and Observe, while I got my camera ready.And we waited. We were standing there for like, 20 seconds when this guy walks in frame....Then it happens: The front wheel goes up, the guy is baffled, and my son and I are standing there barely holding ourselves from rolling on the floor, laughing! It was a good day.P.S. We helped him with his bicycle afterwards.

5 Street Photography ClichesWhen I first sat down to craft my top 5 list of clichés found in streetphotography I thought it was going to be a very quick exercise. I figured I would list 5 common photographs I usually see on groups on the internet and be done. Before I could even start crafting a list I needed to understand the definition of cliché.Wikipedia defines it as:"an expression, idea, or element of an artistic work which has been overused to the point of losing its original meaning or effect, especially when at some earlier time it was considered meaningful or novel"I quickly realized that a quick list of 5 types of photographs wouldn't suffice as in a couple months it could be obsolete. For instance, if you were to ask me a year ago I might have said black and white photographs but now street photography on the whole seems to be moving more towards colour street photographs.Since particular cliché photo types in street photography can change as the popularity of shooting styles cha

Photos by Ben Lowy/Getty Reportage/Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund; Text by Mother JonesThe death of four Americans in a terrorist attack has focused attention on Benghazi in recent weeks, but while violence and political instability mark today's Libya, there is much more to be seen among the people and culture emerging from decades of life under Qaddafi. This past summer, photojournalist Ben Lowy, armed with the iPhone camera he is known to use so well, documented bombed out buildings, Libyan women voting in the first-ever democratic election, and more. Why didn't he work with fancier gear? "Small mobile phone cameras are innocuous and enable a far greater intimacy with a subject," Lowy says, noting that Libyans themselves have also done much to document their

Street BumsDosser, Hobo, Lowlife, Tramp, Contemptible Git... ...are just some of the few non-R-rated names a homeless person goes by.In 2005, the United Nations conducted a survey which put the number of homeless at an estimated 100 million, worldwide.As of 2012, the unofficial estimate is anywhere between 250 to 300 million.But that's not what this journal is about.Many of us are uncomfortable with photographing homeless folk because it feels like some sort of exploitation, like we're taking advantage of their misery.... stuff like that.The main purpose of this journal is to invite fellow deviants to discuss, ask questions - maybe even attempt to answer a few of them, so that we can better understand the ethical conflicts, the stigma (faced by photographers - especially Street photographers), and the moral risks associated with taking candid photos of the homeless in a public place, without their consent.Monologues are welcome.

Pioneers Of Street Photography - IVTo celebrate the 1st anniversary of #TheStreetFactor, we present to youthe fourth part of a series of journals dedicated to the great masters:The Pioneers of Street Photography.Raghubir Singh(October 22, 1942 - April 18, 1999)was among the first photographers to successfully use color, especially in the fields ofDocumentary and Street Photography, to great acclaim.Crawford Market, Mumbai, Maharashtra - 1993. © Raghubir SinghBorn in Jaipur, India, Singh attended St. Xavier's School school and it was here that he discovered Cartier-Bresson'slittle-known book, Beautiful Jaipur, published in 1949, which inspired his interest in photography.Later on after a year of studying arts at The Hindu College in New Delhi, Raghubir decided to drop out.Now, with time on his hands, he began taking photographs using a camerahis brother, Pratap Singh had brought for him from Hong Kong.Taxi Driver and Pedestrian Argue, Chitpur Roa
United In Street PhotographyStreet PhotographySimilitude ~ noun Similarity in appearance or character or nature between persons or things.***What amazes me about the Street Photographs featured in this journal, is how they seem so alike in appearance, but at the same time, they are so vastly different in concept, theme and/or execution.As we welcome another year of promoting Street, it gives me immense pleasure in presenting a selection of absolutely brilliant works that will make you stand back and really appreciate how these Artists, despite being worlds apart, still respond to and capture their environments in such a way that if you didn't know better, you'd be convinced that the images displayed below were taken by the same person. I can't think of a better example that could so vividly illustrate that all human beings, despite our differences - be it cultural, religious, political, or whatever... are in
