Street photography is the new black now as in everybody is doing it. Whether it’s finding new and cool stuff and sharing it with your friends on Instagram or you’re interested in capturing people and their daily interaction street photography offers a variety of subjects and challenges.

So here’s some tips from New York photographer Daniel Norton. You’ll find out about camera settings and how to use light to your advantage. I especially enjoyed the one where you use scaffolding to keep your subject in the shade and use the pavement as a reflector, I didn’t know it.

Daniel is using a Canon EOS 5Ds DSLR Camera with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens and this combination is extremely expensive but don’t get discouraged, you can use any camera for street photography starting with your phone, point and shoot and all the way up to the most expensive DSLR or mirrorless gear out there. Film is also a great and cheap alternative and very cool to use nowadays.
