I was looking through my photo archives for one of a series of photos I took a few years ago when I was documenting the “Occupy” movement with my big girl DSLR and I came across the following photos that I decided to share in this blog post.
My studies at the Academy of Art for my M.F.A were in Documentary photography and I still love taking photos of people whenever I get the chance to wander the streets. I do a ton of that street photography with my iPhone although until recently I haven’t shared much of that work since I have been so focused on creating and exhibiting my montage work over the past year. But perusing through my archives this afternoon has rekindled my desire to delve a bit further into my street and documentary photography with my iPhone. All my serious pro work has been captured with a DSLR but I think I am ready to take the leap as soon as my iPhone 5 arrives (yes, I get the upgrade this month finally!).
I was also extremely inspired by hearing Richard Koci Hernandez present at MacWorld. A photojournalist by trade, Koci now shoots his street photography exclusively with his iPhone. And God knows we need more women representin’ in the world of street photography.
