What is Street Photography again?
This is about street photography and our street photography gallery here on dA.
I’m no longer the most web savvy fella out there, so this isn’t going to be the prettiest news article you’ve seen but that’s fine because this is about street photography.  It’s not about skinning or any of the other technical digital art forms here that blow my mind because I don’t understand them very well, and this this isn't the prettiest news article.
But I do understand street photography.
What I have seen lately is that the mass majority of new photographers here, and even some older photographers who may not follow the genre, have a broad misunderstanding of what street photography is. Last night I spent about 10 minutes going through the street gallery's most recent deviations and realized i could probably spend 10 years reporting the misplaced deviations.

Well it's the fall semester and I'm taking another drawing class, Illustration (traditional), Photoshop, and an Intro class to graphic design (*long sigh of boredom*). I'm starting to apply to scholarship and strongly consider grad schools to throw the little money I do have at. I'm also currently job hunting so that's making things even more interesting. All in all I'm holding on and trying to do my best to keep up with the art I've put on myself to complete. And if that wasn't enough to keep my life stress free my boyfriend dumped his dog on my for most of this week (little context here - no one likes his dog but him because he thinks everything his dog does is cute and to the rest of us it just an untrained animal.) because this dog got in trouble and now has to be sent away for good (thank God). Now as long as nothing else goes hay wire I think I might just stay sane.
