It gives us immense pleasure to announce you as photographer of the month. 1) Tells us something about yourself as an individual and a photographer ? What gear do you personally use for streets ?
My name is Yiannis Yiasaris I’m from Greece but have lived in Australia the last 13 years. I am a self taught photographer. My love of street photography comes from my curiosity about people going about their everyday life and my passion to tell their stories through pictures. I use a Sony A7 camera with a Samyang 14mm lens or a Zeiss 35mm lens
2) What’s your view and meaning of street photography ?
There is an expression in Greek that goes something like- the street represents life. I see myself as part of the street. I love that everything changes and nothing is the same on the street and you have only one opportunity to “catch the moment”.
3) What do you think of color and black & white in streets ? which one is your stronger point ?
I like shooting in both color and black and white. Shooting black and white allows you to isolate the subject and in my view makes the photo more dramatic and cinema like. I work more with black and white shots for this reason but at the same time I enjoy shooting in color also.
4) What tips that you want to share with “street-o-graphy” group members on street photography ? What’s your favourite tip ..?
My one tip would be shoot, shoot and shoot again. You cannot be a street photographer unless you are out there yourself. Everything else comes from practice.
5) Anything about our group “Street-O-Graphy ( be as blunt as you wish ) – The best of streets from around the world” ?
Street-O-Graphy. is one of my favourite groups and in my view one of the best sites on Facebook for people who are interested in street photography. It makes no difference whether you are a professional photographer or an amateur.
6) Which forum / website we find all of your work ?
You can view my work on the following sites:
7) Have street photography have affected your life on day-day in any manner ?
Street photography has taught me to view life with a different perspective – it allows me to live and observe the moment. Through the lens I am able to capture daily life in all its simplicity and beauty.
