So says Dado Moriyama, that doyen amongst street photographers.
His photographs are mostly very high contrast, blurry, shadowy, grainy but spontaneous.
He always says the first thing new photographers need to do when they have their first camera…is to get out! Only by getting outside into the environment and walking, can you hope to capture interesting shots.
Secondly, he says forget everything you have read or been taught about photography and just shoot, take photos of anything and everything that even minutely catches your eye, don’t pause to think.
What a refreshingly new way to use your camera!
We have covered his work before on this blog, but I thought it interesting to visit his work again, especially now during the pandemic.
It is indeed heartening to hear that he has not stopped shooting!
