Here are some simple photo tips to improve your street photography, regardless of where you live. Seek out quality light: the golden hour in the morning or afternoon is a good place to start. Focus on interesting subjects, that if of course a personal preferences, but try finding extraordinary subjects. Last but not least, use a strong composition such as the golden mean, the rule of thirds, the rule of odds, the rule of direction, etc. Have fun while you are at it!
I suppose there are some places better than other for street photography. La Antigua Guatemala has to be among the best places to do street photography, with its infinite number of gorgeous backdrops [we simply call them walls] and the colourful people on the streets. I am sure that is why street photography is among the preferred themes for the Antigua Photo Walks that I lead around town. Of course, if you would like to learn even more street photography skills, make sure you book a photo walk with me next time you visit Guatemala.
