Tomorrow I’ll be braving the streets with Cork Streetphotography taking photos in the style of Garry Winogrand.
I’d never heard of Garry but a quick Google brought me plenty of digest. First this documentary, filmed in 1982, that showed his technique and friendly nature:
Then I came across this excellent blog post about the man. To summarise his technique:
You can see in the video above how he fiddles with his camera to distract the people around him. That’s not a bad idea, especially when you have a wide lens!
The tips from that post, which I urge you to read:
I’ll be only using my wide angle (17-40mm) lens so I won’t be tempted to zoom in too much. Tomorrow will be challenging.
The photos in this post are mine, just in case you’re not familiar with Cork. I shot the first photo in San Francisco in 2007. You can find many images by Garry Winogrand on Google Images.
