Street Photography

Saturday 02 March
Downtown Hartford - 3pm - 2 Hours
Hartford Photography Group
Jahvon John
Street photography is a genre of photography that captures candid moments of everyday life in public places, such as streets, parks, and other urban areas. It often involves taking pictures of people, buildings, and objects in their natural environment, without any posing or staging.

Street photography has a rich history, with notable photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand, and Vivian Maier having made significant contributions to the genre. It requires a certain level of skill and patience to capture compelling images in the midst of the chaos and unpredictability of the streets.

Today, street photography continues to be popular among both amateur and professional photographers. With the advent of digital cameras and smartphones, it has become more accessible than ever before. However, there are still certain ethical considerations to keep in mind, such as obtaining permission from individuals before taking their photos and being respectful of people's privacy.

    Minas Garabedian
    I have been into photography for some time now (20plus years, but who's keeping track!). It started out as a hobby and grew from there. Portraits are my main focus, but I like exploring different avenues as well. Lighting is key, and setting up various equipment to get the desired effect is my passion for creating images that have an impact for both me and my audience.

    Reflections on the water made me pull over and record this scene at the Wachusett Aqueduct in Northborough, captured in RAW this past November with my iPhone 14 Pro Max. I?d always wanted to explore it on foot it was the right time of day, 2PM, and the right time of year, autumn. I pulled over and got my feet wet a bit as I walked around.

    First off, I have to say that I am not a "Birder". But I love challenging my photographic skills and abilities. The American Kestrel is not a big bird, and it is fast. So even when you know its takeoff is imminent, it is still hard to get a nice clear photo of the bird. This particular image was shot with a Canon R6 camera, with the RF100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens at 1/5000 sec, f/7.1 and ISO 4000. I used the animal eye-tracking feature of this mirrorless full frame camera, and was very plea

Even with some clouds, we were not so fortunate and when the sunlight was casting on the water I switched to black and white mentality and was able to capture this photo. You can just see the setting sun in the upper right corner for the photo.
