MAX’S TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Check the location in a detailed way before you get started; it helps you to choose an optimal position. How are you going to compose the shot?
Pay close attention to the play of light, framing, lines, shapes and size of the subject – it stimulates you to determine correct viewing direction.
Make a clear selection of what is important and what is not. do you want to photograph the building itself or the building and its surroundings? what message do you want to send?
Try to create a ‘harmonious contrast’, for example between light and shadows, large and small, and colourful vs. limited use of colours.
if you see a good street scene, don’t just take one photograph. Make enough shots that you can select the best image afterwards.
while shooting in the street, stop checking the photo on the back screen – by doing that you could miss the special moments.
