April 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+5.5

YPS Meet - Blur - A Presentation by Dr Shivji Joshi on 4 April at 5-30 PM IST

YPS Meet Live | April 04, Sun | 5:30 PM | YPS Facebook Page and YouTube Channel

Broadly speaking any photo taken at a public place may be called street photography. There are two schools of street photography. Purists: For them only candid photography is street photography. They even do not allow cropping the frame. The second is, Liberals: They permit a sort of instruction or direction to subject without changing the environment of the street.  All genres of street photography disallow modeling photography.  No manipulation is allowed in any genre as well.

Narrative elements and Emotional value are the core compositional elements of street photography.
