Urban Photography


"What can you possibly photograph in this city?" I get this question often and the answer is simple - everything and anything! No matter what subsection of the world of photography you subscribe to (landscape, street, nature, etc.) most urban settings are ideal photo playgrounds. Whatever the time of year your city offers a wonderland of photo opportunities for the beginner to the most seasoned photo hound in all of us.
I will use, for the purpose of this article, the example of my city - Guayaquil, Ecuador. A hot, hazy, stinky, beautiful city - Guayaquil, like all large urban centres, offers a wide variety of exciting and overlooked photo opportunities that most of us look at everyday but never see.

Whether you are walking the streets of your city or relaxing in one of its many parks, people are always available as subjects for your lens. Even the most mundane of daily activities happening all around you can make for a beautiful if not inspiring photograph.
