My thoughts on composition theory:
Intensity and rawness
What makes an intense street photograph? A photo that the photograph has intense energy and power.
Life outside the frame
Considering — the photos you shoot reveal a world beyond your photo. A world OUTSIDE.
Cutting the heads off your subjects. But recognizing the purpose of this technique … giving the viewer the imagination of the subject beyond the frame:
Photos with eye contact as more intense:
Surrealism in street photography: we know the people and scene are real, but it looks like something else and can be interpreted in a different way.
Backgrounds which are interesting. Then add a subject, it becomes even more interesting!
