Learning Street Photography in 2021

Hello, friends! It’s getting warm outside again and I’ve had both of my covid19 vaccinations. You know what that means? It’s that time of year where I pretend to be an up-and-coming street photographer in the Louisville area! I’m learning street photography. I’ve been working on it for a few years.

I’m definitely not the best at it yet. Most of my photos are actually kind of boring and awful. Almost all of them would probably get destroyed in a workshop setting. Having navigated through the fiction workshop world for a while, I’ve learned to just do my own thing anyway. That being said, I still try to learn as much as I can from those who are willing to critique and workshop, and make themselves vulnerable with their art. For that reason, being comfortable sharing my own work is pretty important.

To track my progress this year, it’s probably a good idea to look back on last year.

My 2020 Photography

Last year, just before the pandemic hit, I restarted a photography kick that really started in 2019, though I don’t have many good photos from 2019. Over the course of a few months during the initial shutdown of the pandemic in 2020, I got some pretty-alright stuff, I think.
