Cell Phone Street Photography

I walked to the local Ace Hardware this morning and took a few shots along the way. I noticed some attempts to thwart graffiti. I love all the color and the bold designs. I hope these works of art remain unspoiled for a long time.

I also discovered that my Nexus 5X is almost perfect for street photography. There are a number of reasons for this.

  • The camera quality is pretty good.
  • Like most phones, a picture can be snapped by pressing any button, and lots of folks don’t know this.
  • Tiny lens produces large depth of focus.
  • No one is surprised to see a person carrying a cell phone in his hand while walking down the street. I can snap away at will.

I just figured this out this morning, and have taken just a handful of shots on the street today. I still need to work on technique, and I need to find a way to stop touching the screen while shooting, which has a tendency to change settings, but I see lots of promise in this technique. Excited to do more!
