Street Photography is quickly becoming an important genre in the world of photography. Street photographers have a significant following on the internet and are proving to be a significant contributor in photographic art. As a nature and wildlife photographer I have been researching this phenomenon and find that it has many challenges. Aside from the gear choices one has to make, approaching your subjects on the streets where you live could be daunting and the cause for a certain expertise. My recent experience with street photography was last Wednesday as I was attending my local community Independence Day Celebration. I always try to get there early so I can position myself for some of the great fireworks photos I can get that evening. In the interim, people listen to a local band, watch their children at play, have an adult beverage, and just general commiseration. I took the opportunity to take a small step in to this new genre. I found this gentleman clowning around with some of the patrons and thought I would give it a whirl. Enjoy!
