Let’s be honest…the most macho of all enthusiast photography is Street Photography. The mere mention of street conjures uncommon courage, superior skill, and iconic images plucked from the chaos. It’s a split second examination of one’s manhood…with rote rules [to ignore] and whiny naysayers at every turn.
My OutofChicago Photo Conference consisted of an all day workshop and three photowalks, all by internationally recognized instructors. I was there with a chill attitude to meet some people, have some fun, pick up a few tips, and bust a bunch of frames in a different location. In my free time I wandered around looking for images with layers and complexity that conveyed a sense of place, perhaps to lofty a goal for three days on the run in new city.
