running through the swings kid street photography ERIC KIM

One of the most under-rated forms of street photography:

Kid street photography.

Honestly at this point; it all goes. With permission, without permission. Photos of your own kids or the kids of others. Photos of kids in public space or private.

I see street photography as more of a technique, approach and ethos. This means there is a ‘street photography style‘ — striving to capture raw human emotions. The technicalities (with permission, without permission, candid or posed, etc) doesn’t matter.

Real thoughts:

The approach:

  • running through the swings kid street photography ERIC KIM
  1. Run with the kids; disregard for composition
  2. When shooting photos of kids, make it dynamic, forceful, and full of movement.
  3. Use a small camera. RICOH GR III is ideal.
  4. Strive towards minimalism. Minimalist compositions are best. Fill the frame with all the excitement and dynamic force of the kids.
