- What is street photography? Street photography is when the photographer goes out into a public domain to capture people in a typically unposed position in order to document or say something about an aspect of humanity or society.
- Explain what aperture and shutter speed are: Aperture is how wide or closed the diameter of the lens is, thus determining how much light is let in. Aperture is expressed in F-stop, but they have an inverse relationship. The smaller the F-stop number, the wider the diameter of the lens, and the larger the F-stop number, the smaller the diameter. Shutter speed is how fast or slow the lens opens and closes. A faster shutter speed better captures things in motion and the subject will be in focus and crisp.
