Group Description

"Streets Ahead" is a Column on one of the largest and most influential mobile photography sites in the world.

This Women's Mobile Street Photography Collective is dedicated to sharing and highlighting some of the amazing work done by talented women in the community as well as exploring the unique and fresh perspective that they bring to this genre.

Please note: Even though we appreciate and admire all the photography that is being done by both genders in this community, we will only be highlighting and exploring women's contributions in our column and showcases. Sorry about that, guys :-)

Criteria for submissions
Street photography by definition is photography that captures people and places within the public domain. It doesn’t necessarily need to include people, but there should be a suggestion or visual acknowledgement of the human presence. It can also be defined as un-posed, un-staged photography. It often captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings. Framing and timing are key aspects, with the aim of creating images that capture a decisive or poignant moment.

We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of the craft of street photography – composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching that decisive moment – rather than relying on too much apping. We therefore feel that apping should be kept to a minimum - cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a little grain or texture is ok but we would like you to steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art-orientated or painterly.

Group Rules

1. You must be female to submit photos to the group pool
2. All submissions must be shot and processed with a mobile device
