Michael Freeman's Photo School: Street Photography Summary

Michael Freeman's Photo School: Street Photography by Michael Freeman

The street aesthetic is more in vogue than ever, and rapidly becoming an essential part of every photographer's repertoire. Subjects are found around every corner, each moment offers a new and fresh perspective, and that excitement and spontaneity make it an ideal training ground for honing the skills needed to anticipate and successfully capture dramatic scenes on the fly.
Getting great street shots is much more than just a matter of chance. Michael Freeman details the optimal strategies for anticipating the action before it happens, and the fastest techniques that ensure you're ready with your finger on the shutter for that critical moment. A thorough overview of which equipment is best suited for each particular style lets you make the most of the gear you have, even in the most challenging lighting conditions. And a series of exercises keeps you engaged and alert to the creative potential of countless scenes throughout your daily life.
Beyond the gear and technique, you will also learn to think like a street photographer recognising not just captivating scenes with engaging subjects, but also innovative angles from which to capture them, all with the split-second instinct of a professional.

About Michael Freeman

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographers has been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.
