Black & White Street Photos & Candid People Photos


Cities like New York City, Chicago, San Francisco & even the smaller quaint town of Portland in Maine offers numerous opportunities for street photos & candid people photos including portraits in natural environments.

Personally I prefer to do black & white street photos & candid people photos – they stand out better & the black & white tones bring out the characters extremely well.

I present the photos as they were shot without any digital manipulations. These sample black & white street photos were shot in Portland, Maine & many more in the New York City & represent people in their natural environments working through their daily life.

These black & white street photos were shot in BW Mode using professional Nikon digital cameras & professional Nikon street photography lenses (more on Street Photography Camera Bag).
