Photography 101: Street

To capture your street snapshot, wander your own neighborhood — or explore someplace new!

In your wide shot, also think about its basic components: a foreground and a background. The foreground is the part of your scene that’s nearest to the viewer, and where you can place a subject or focal point of your picture – The Daily Post

I work in the business sector of the very pretty Old Montreal.  Although there are still a few tourist attractions nearby, like the Notre-Dame Church.  These streets are ones I walk by everyday and they are ever so breathtaking to see the European style in Canada.  A very special feature of Old Montreal and probably why a lot of tourists choose to visit here.

I’m not exactly sure what story was told here.  Mornings are just people walking around and parking and running off to work.  Its a quiet area since its the business district so I guess thats why I chose to use a tree as the center on the top to show the autumn season and the “bureaux a louer” (aka offices for rent) sign and the Canada Post mailbox next to a lamppost in the third to add a little something.

What streets do you frequent? Do you like to explore new streets?
