THE BIG FAT LIST OF 45 STREET PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT IDEAS
Lists by Spyros Papaspyropoulos - Oct 15, 2014

Introduction

Everyone that shoots Street knows that passion and drive alone are not enough to keep one going for years and years. There are times when the will is not enough because of lack of purpose. This is something that is apparent in many things in life.

Our brains need goals in order to make our life experiences interesting. In Street Photography there comes a point when just hitting the streets and shooting random photos, is not enough no matter how good the photographs. Without purpose the experienced Street Photographer’s eyes can’t see interesting situations.

Why Is That?

All three reasons stated below are mine and mine alone. That means that you might not agree with them or find them somewhat not to your liking. Then again, you might agree with them 100%. What is important to me is to explain to you the reasons why I Street Photographers stop “seeing” as they used to when they initially started practicing the art. So, in my opinion:

The experienced Street Photographer isn’t attracted to the cliches any more, so naturally fewer shots are fired aimed towards simple everyday situations that offer nothing new. This makes the daily image count decrease significantly. Sometimes this is misconceived as a lack of inspiration, but it is not. It is just the natural evolution of the Street Photographer who is now in search for more unique images. Photos that stand out and can never be repeated.
The experienced Street Photographer is no longer ecstatic about clicking the shutter button from the minute he/she steps out into the streets. The Street Photographer doesn’t shoot without being sure of why he/she is doing so anymore. The period of taking 1000 photographs per photo walk is over. If a shot isn’t worth capturing the Street Photographer doesn’t bother with it. His/her natural evolution has made him/her count on skill and patience to make images and not so much on just blind luck and a trigger happy finger.
The experienced Street Photographer needs more out of each photo walk. He/she has the need for something bigger, something that will make him/her go out again the next day and the next. Something that grows and evolves, something with a continuum. Something that will help him/her grow his/her body of work in a meaningful way. What the experienced Street Photographer needs is a purpose and for one to have a purpose, one must have projects.

What Is This Post About?

In this post I will not examine the reasons why projects in Street Photography are an important stepping stone in a Street Photographer’s path. What I will be sharing with you is the big fat list of 45 Street Photography project ideas that I have made for myself and which I think you will enjoy too. I have been working on this list for months and I think it is now ready to share but there is always room for more ideas!

List Of Street Photography Project Ideas

All ideas are presented in random order, just as they came to me. I have added some short descriptions to help you understand the nature of each idea.

1. Eat - Photos of people enjoying their food as freely as possible. The sloppier the better.
2. Looking down - Photos of people looking down from balconies and windows.
3. Corners - Photos of interesting corners shot with a wide angle lens, revealing life as it unfolds in the streets on both sides of the corner.
4. People on the job - People doing their everyday jobs.
5. Portraits - Photos of peoples faces mainly. The photos can be posed.
6. Panning - Photos of moving subjects shot at medium to slow shutter speeds with low ISO that give a sense of movement.
7. High speed freeze - The opposite of Panning, shoot people at very high shutter speeds and try and freeze split seconds in time.
8. Hands full - Photos of hands full of anything. For example hands with coins, hands with dirt, hands with a tablet, a smartphone, etc.
9. Project 365 or Project 52 - A 365 project is to add 1 Street Photo to your collection every day. A 52 project is the same thing but on a weekly basis.
10. 30 Day Project One Camera & One Lens - For 30 days, use only One Camera & One Lens to make photographs.
11. Smiles with Braces - Capture people wearing braces smiling.
12. Motion Blur crowds - Set up your cameras on tripods (sorry there is no other way around this, unless you have solid, motionless hands) and shoot crowded places with very slow shutter speeds.
13. Behind glass - Make photos of people and situations behind glass. That glass can be coloured, shattered, anything.
14. Shoot the same corner of your town every day for 1 year - Every day shoot a corner of your choice and document the different happenings that occur there and make a collection of photos.
15. 30 days of B&W only - Make black and white photographs for 30 days. No colour allowed. If you shoot digital, shoot B&W jpgs, not RAW because RAW retains colour information. If you shoot film, just use B&W film.
16. 30 days of a specific colour - Pick a colour, any colour and focus on making photos that include it as the main focal point. Do this for 30 days.
17. Project 28 (28 days, 28 photos, 28mm lens) - I read about this somewhere and I liked the idea. For 28 days, shoot 28 photographs using a 28mm lens.
18. Project 35 (35 days, 35 photos, 35mm lens) - For 35 days, shoot 35 photographs using a 35mm lens.
19. Project 50 (50 days, 50 photos, 50mm lens) - For 50 days, shoot 50 photographs using a 50mm lens.
20. Reflections (in Puddles, glass, water) - Make a collection of photographs from reflections in puddles, glass, water, cars, anything.
21. Silhouettes - Make a collection of photographs of Silhouettes.
22. Only Shadows - Make a collection of photographs of just human Shadows without any visible people.
23. Hand gestures - Make a collection of photographs of people’s hands gesturing. Things like pointing, waving etc.
24. Condensation - Use Saul Leiter’s condensation tricks to make a collection of similarly shot photographs.
25. Angry people - Make a collection of photographs of angry people. This might be a hard one!
26. Bald heads - Make a collection of photographs of bald headed people.
27. Things in front of peoples faces - Make a collection of photographs of people with things in front of their faces. So for example you might place a flower in front on someone’s face and make him appear as if they have a flower for a head.
28. Disappearing Professions - Try and seek people doing jobs that are going extinct and make a collection of photographs of them on the job. This project will also have historical value.
29. Embraces - Take photographs of people embracing each other.
30. Kisses - Take photographs of people kissing each other.
31. Femininity - Make a collection of photographs about femininity. Capture the essence of women.
32. Masculinity - Make a collection of photographs about masculinity. Capture the essence of men.
33. Smoking - Make a collection of photographs of smokers. People smoking.
34. Tattoos - Make a collection of photographs of people with tattoos.
35. Sunrise Street Photography - Make a collection of Street photographs shot during sunrise.
36. Sunset Street Photography - Make a collection of Street photographs shot during sunset.
37. People taking a piss - Capture people relieving themselves of their bodily fluids, that is urinating.
38. 100 Strangers - Make a collection of 100 strangers you don’t know anything about. This is like the portraits project but the 100 Strangers projects has to be 100% candid shots.
39. Boredom - Photograph people looking bored and make a nice collection of photos of bored people. How boring!
40. Money exchange - Make a collection of people exchanging money. You can do hand closeups or shoot from slightly further away, as long as the exchange is visible.
41. Opposites - Make a collection of photos that include opposite things. For example a cat looking at a dog, or a tall man sitting next to a short man, etc.
42. Dogs and their people - Take low POV shots of dogs and their people.
43. In the rain - Make a collection of photos shot in the rain.
44. Umbrellas - Make a collection of photographs with people and umbrellas.
45. Beachwear & Beach photos - Make a collection of photographs of people in their swimming costumes shot at the beach.

Let us shoot more, and worry less.

Shoot and worry less about the result; whether it is “good” or not.
Shoot and worry less about how many followers you have or how many “likes” you will get on an image.
Shoot and worry less about whether your subject will get angry at you or not.
Life is stressful enough as it is; photography should be removing stress and anxiety from our lives— rather than adding complications and worry to our lives.

[#43] JOURNAL TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY (長期街攝項目之二 : 光與影)     
森山大道曾说过:“照片乃光与时间的化石。”对于一幅照片来说,光与影是其最本质的语言。所有盛满情感与意义的照片,都必须以光和影作为载体。同时,光与影本身也像一段旋律或一首诗,以其自身独特的韵律与节奏,在我们的视觉中、心灵中激起一串串的涟漪。

所以 "光與影" 也成為我的長期街攝項目。

"光與影" 有光,才能製造影;有影,讓照片更加立體。

[#49] JOURNAL TO MY PHOTOGRAPHY (黃竹坑隧道口紅棉鳥攝)     
今年 2016 紅棉鳥攝在四月尾已經結束了。與去年比較, 鳥少得很, 尤其相思仔 (綠繡眼)! 加上花期遇上惡劣天氣, 黃雨連續, 好天日子甚了! 是以好相不多, 花鳥美圖亦難得, 經整理後在此分享。

我今年去過兩次, 九龍東去黃竹坑也算交通方便快捷, 算係頗舒適嘅拍攝地點, 下年再戰, 要多去幾次。 ^_^

不少到黃竹坑隧道口拍攝紅棉鳥, 多是每年都來的常客, 大部份都希望拍攝到相思仔和紅嘴藍鵲, 尤其是飛行拍翼版!
