Which of the two photos you consider a street photo and which of the two you like the most and why?.
Both are street photos in my view Salim Bhai, but the photo of 2 blind men with their walking stick in hand walking along with a “normal” crowd in toe is more ” talking” in terms of visual aesthetics & in terms of telling a story & according to me this picture needed the photographer to become a part of the scene shooting it upfront compared to an old man sitting on a bench shot candidly
Of course blind men couldn’t see you shooting them but a chuckle on a teenagers face behind is quite evident ,for me this photo works because In a simple click it shows the independence of 2 blind men in this big bad world & their true spirit of carrying the things ..come what may
I see your point DrHadi, to me both are street photos. Even though the next one is well composed, but still its candid “Meaning it was not stagged”. But I like the “Two blind men” one better because as you said it conveys a better strong message
old man reading has been well composed and it reflects the mood of the street very nicely in comparison to the two beggars as they have too many followers leaving the street scene inadequate.
Better composed doesnt necessarily mean better street photo. Many of the street photos are rarely composed, so long its candid, and gives a certain message, its good enough
