Mobile Photography – Streets Ahead – Fifty Second Edition – Women’s Street Photography Collective


Welcome to our fifty second edition of “StreetsAhead,” a weekly column dedicated to women mobile street photographers. Each week we review and curate work that was submitted to our Flickr Group. In addition to creating a showcase video which features a sampling of submitted work, we also highlight a few images that caught our attention… offering some thoughtful commentary about technique, composition, and subject matter.If you are not a member of our Facebook group… we highly recommend that you join us!  This is our space for sharing newsworthy information and conducting discussions (what, when, where, why and how) about Women Photographers/Artists and Street Photography, in general.

So, if you are a woman street photographer, please join our growing community… I’m sure that you will agree that we are a very enthusiastic and supportive group of women!!

Mobile Photography – StreetWise Showcase – November 2016


“Of course it’s all luck.”  Henri Cartier-Bresson

Thank you all so much for inspiring us with your incredible photos – we were quite blown away by the varying depths of creativity in this group!

It makes it very difficult for us to choose such few images for the showcase from all those that were submitted.

We hope you will enjoy our November showcase as much as Ilana and I enjoyed putting it together!

A special thank you to Joanne.

As a reminder, we choose images for the showcase that are in keeping with our group’s intention and guidelines  “We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of street photography  composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching the decisive moment  rather than relying on too much apping. We therefore feel that apping should be kept to a minimum  cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a grain or texture is ok but we would like to see you steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art-oriented or painterly.”

If you are a mobile street photographer, please consider joining our growing community.

To those new to our street photography community, welcome – it is great to have you join us!

Mobile Photography – StreetWise – Seventh Challenge Results – ‘Shapes and Geometry in the Street’


Welcome to our Seventh StreetWise Challenge Showcase – ‘Shapes and Geometry in the Street’. We are thrilled to share it with you.

Also, we are growing as a group and we couldn’t be more excited. It’s such a pleasure for Lee and I to see new people added to our already incredible group of artists.

As always, Lee and I hope you enjoy this showcase as much as we enjoyed creating it – and we really do enjoy it!
