    While the first book was about the basics, this book is more advanced and contains a
    lot of personal thoughts and ideas. I tried to explain what Street Photography means
    to me and how I see it. It contains more than 30 short chapters about the different
    areas and topics of street photography. It should help beginners to understand the
    process of making story telling photos and to improve your personal style as a street
    photographer. Together with the first book it will be a good reference for anyone who
    wants to become a street photographer.

  • Nice books, stupid approach. If I was to try this where I live I would end up punched in the face in the first 5 min.
