Street photography for dummies
What do we need to shoot a street picture?
1. A camera!
Whatever kind of a camera is good! Either it is a ridiculously expensive SLR or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact! Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine!
2. A public place!
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place! This public place must be visible in our picture! And things must be happening in this public place.
3. People!
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations!
Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed"
Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-posed and unplanned, immediate and unobtrusive. This is in contrast to classic photography, which includes aspects

Contest: Nothing Gold Can Stay
the-mirror-club, a group for conceptual photography, is pleased to announce the opening of its first contest "Nothing Gold Can Stay".
It is based on the following poem by Robert Frost:
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Your task is to interpret this poem in the form of a conceptual photograph.
Contest Rules + Important info
:bulletblack: The photo you send in must have some connection to the poem by Robert Frost.
:bulletblack: The part of the poem that you interpreted must be included in the "Artist's Comments" section of your deviation. This is important to avoid any misunderstandings.
:bulletblack: Each person may submit two entries.
:bulletblack: The photo you send in does not have to be one created specifically for the contest.

Photography, a beginners Guide
After a recent pool i had, it seems like people miss more tutorials and guides to photography.
So i am gonna give it my best and make this easy and hopefully helpful.
No absolute answer to everything, but things from my point of view, including some facts.
Advanced facts that sounds sexy will not be included here, Mostly because you don`t need that information to take great photos.
But i will give you url to all the major subjects so that you can read in-depth about them.
First things first, you gonna need a camera, the question on everyones lips is; What camera should i get?
Whats with the freaking megapixels? what is a dslr?
A digital camera/Point and shoot, does not give you the opportunity to change lenses.
Meaning, that the zoom and usability of the lens is as it is.
That does not make it horrible, but for photographers who work with Macro and wildlife photography, that requires a zoom and a magnification that a point-and-shoot c
