25 Great Examples of Candid Street Photography

, , 4 Comments

Its time to revisit one of my favourite styles of Photography – candid street photos. I looked at this style before with our “Example of Black and White Street Photography” post, so check that out if you like this style.

Street photography uses the techniques of straight photography in that it shows a pure vision of something, like holding up a mirror to society. Street photography often tends to be ironic and can be distanced from its subject matter, and often concentrates on a single human moment, caught at a decisive or poignant moment.
