Most people who are successful at whatever they do, are good at goals. Setting them and meeting them. The more frequently and quickly that happens, usually the more successful that person is in whatever they’re trying to do. This is momentum. The process of continually setting and accomplishing goals is momentum. And it’s as real for photographers as for anyone else. When a goal is met, there’s a spark of emotional energy released for the pursuit of the next goal. In this way, we can ride the wave of momentum.
In today’s world websites play bigger part than a practical communication. They are supposed to drive attention, traffic and sales, especially in photography business. Fortunately for photographers, along with the development of the web, a lot of new opportunities have come into scene.

What follows is a collection of photographs consisting of concepts and subjects you’ve no doubt seen thousands of times over, concepts and subjects you’ve probably incorporated into your own photography.

Sure, we all know about the likes of Henri Cartier Bresson, one of the most influential street photographers of all time, and while his work certainly needs to be seen and studied by modern photographers, Cartier Bresson isn’t the only street photographer who has caught our eyes. Let’s take a moment and celebrate these eight street photographers who are making a name for themselves.
Photography can’t be all f-stops and shutter speeds; megapixels and frames per second shouldn’t dominate your thought process each time you reach for your camera. At the heart of meaningful, visually arresting photography lies attitude; how do you think and feel about what you’re shooting?

Every single one of us holds assumptions. They are part of being human. We assume there won’t be too much traffic on the way home from work, or that there will be way too much.

Let me ask you a question. Why aren’t you creating right now? I don’t mean right now. I mean now in a general sense. The general-now. The now that’s touching us on all sides.

We thought it would be helpful to put together a list of resources that photographers generally use and how they use them.
