Tips for Shooting Street Style from Kirstin Sinclair

  • I think it’s always important to be aware of the environment you are shooting in with street style you don’t want a background that distracts, clashes or overtakes in your final image.

  • The direction of the daylight is all important with street style photography so I like to keep an eye on how it changes throughout the day and how I can use it to create a unique image from dappled light to back light by thinking ahead, and whenever possible asking people to stand in just the right place to photograph them you can achieve so many different effects.

  • Street style should be about a person’s style and also character once I have chosen a good spot to shoot I often allow people to pose how they most feel comfortable and then ask them to vary their position slightly if I can’t see enough of a bag, shape of a shoe.
