Bert on the Street 3

Reactive and Proactive Street Photography

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)


In this third part of his street photography series Bert Stephani takes us to two photographic attitudes - the reactive and proactive photography.
Bert explains their differences as well as their advantages and disadvantages. Then, armed with his Fujifilm X70 compact camera on which a GoPro is stuck, he makes his way through Dinant 's streets to combine reactive and proactive street photography: He looks out for suitable scenes and while walking he photographs his impressions of the city.
Finally, he shows two well-done pictures from streets far away from Belgium. These examples show once again that reactive and proactive photography have their own appeal and how they can be combined in particularly lucky moments.
