#NikonTip: SHOOT FROM THE HIP if you don’t feel comfortable pointing your camera at a stranger, or want some candid/interesting shots. Some more reasons to shoot from the hip:
1. People's expressions are natural.
2. It gives a child's eye-level view.
3. You’ll get some unusual and dynamic compositions that you probably wouldn't have tried if you had looked through the viewfinder.

#StreetPhotography: It’s a genre of photography usually done candidly without permission and without your subject’s knowledge.
Your goal is to capture emotion, humanity, and depict a person’s character – it's a great idea to get a more intimate portrait of someone in his/her environment.
Camera settings – Aperture priority works best, choose the appropriate ISO for the lighting too.

This video shows you how to pair your #SnapBridge enabled camera with your smart device in just 3 easy steps.
#NikonTip: Find shapes in the city. Look for a location that offers clean lines, bold shapes, stong design and/or creative elements. Shadows can also be used as a strong visual element in street photography – shadows can even become the focal point themselves.

PRODUCT FOCUS: 50mm f1,8 prime lens (AKA The ‘Nifty’ Fifty)
A 50mm is a fantastic go-to lens for producing amazing street photography results without taking you so far out of your comfort zone that you have to bring your camera really close to your subject’s face. The nifty fifty is light, small and so very convenient to carry around, whether in your bag, or on your camera.

#StreetPhotography Tip by Alexi Portokallis (aka Alexioso):
"Johannesburg streets can be menacing, but treat people with respect. You also need to be street smart,and be careful, a brief careless moment can be dangerous.
Street photography can also be uncomfortable, you cannot be afraid of confrontation and being rejected. Keep pushing and testing your limits. There is a great quote I like...

What would your ideal/dream #NikonKit be for #StreetPhotography?
NIKON TIP: Street photography is something that requires fast reactions and fast shooting and anticipating moments between people before they happen. Consider using 1/250th in the shade and 1/400 or 1/500th in direct sunlight. In darker situations, you can go to 1/160th and sometimes 1/125th.
Do you agree? :)

Now, that’s a good question isn’t it? Auto mode can help us take any picture during any scene. We also have semi auto modes where we can control the aperture or the shutter speed and the camera adjusts the other on its own so we can still capture our images.

So why worry about the manual mode? What is it that is driving more and more photographers to learn manual...
