Street Photography – Kitanozaka Street @ Kobe City

KEH Cam - 468x60

Street photography can be fun and exciting

For urban city street photography you need a good composition of people and building to capture the heart and soul of the city

But in Japan most of buildings and structures are squarish and way too familiar. Means to say most cities in Japan looked the same! Furthermore privacy rules can add to restraints of showing people’s full facial images.

In such a boring setting what can helps to bring out the essence of city life is natural lighting and exposure!

Interestingly Japan have got very excellent natural lighting for outdoor street photography and especially during winter time there are plenty of days with clear blue sky

Kitanozaka Street in Kobe happens to be the place where you will find lots of old fashion cafes with live bands
