Be inspired from this guide. THE ART OF SEEING will present Street Photography as a method to be applied in the street, stimulating to tell your experience and presenting your vision. This 86 pages guide will present the experience and the approach of Alex Coghe on the road saying something new about Street Photography. THE ART OF SEEING is not a simple guide about teaching you how to technically approach the streets. It is a street photography guide where even the experienced street photographerwill find new elements and inspiration to go out in the public realm to make photography, without labels or rigid rules, stimulating the reader/photographer to find his vision and make his art. You will learn how to approach in the streets with your vision, not with that of other. This book is not only for beginners: it is an opportunity for photographers already working on the street to get another point of view from someone like them and getting inspiration.
