Joel Meyerowitz Video
If you’re looking for a quick and dirty street photography tutorial (rather than this long-winded series), check out this quick video of Joel Meyerowitz in action. The best part of the video isn’t the pictures themselves, it’s Meyerowitz’s enthusiasm: “the incredible replenishment of surprise at what comes your way (while street shooting) allows you to make new photographs.”
Watching video of photographers in action may be as exciting as watching paint dry for some, but I’ve found it worthwhile, especially when overlayed with the photographs themselves. The Nachtwey documentary, “War Photographer” is a fantastic example of this.
