What separates the award winning photographers from the wannabes? What is that special spark that makes the work of some inspire, while the work of others simply amuse? As professionals will tell you, it’s not always the things you’d expect; ranging from finding the right emotional cool behind the lens, to knowing how to best use natural light at a moments notice. Good thing PhotoWhoa recently released their second free eBook titled The Street Collective Vol. 1.
They’ve spent months compiling exceptional interviews with ten talented photographers from the street, doc and fine art worlds, and rolled them into one beautiful read. With titles like ‘How to lose yourself and take more compelling photos‘ from street photographer Bryan Formhals, to ‘How she went from 300 dollars in her pocket to successful photographer‘ from Delphine Diaw Diallo (one of PDN’s “new and emerging artists to watch out for”), this is just the read for photographers looking for inspiration and how to improve their craft. Check out your free copy here.
Beautifully arranged with interesting interviews; this one featuring the work and words of Erica Coburn.
Below, four of the ten included photographers.
