Authenticity in fashion
We all love authenticity. Street style pictures are way more realistic than those on the catwalks or in magazines. Some of them are still very planned, and very classic with poses but the majority are spontaneous, caught in the moment. With street style pictures, the audience are closer from fashion, than the photographs we see on magazines. Street styles pictures can be from the everyday people. From the one you see going to work, to the cute stylish couple who like to match their outfit or the hipster neighbour.
The beauty about street style pictures, is that you don’t have any codes. You can pose where and how you want. Taking photographs about people crossing the road, is the most natural look you can capture. They usually do not pay attention about how they look and they don’t pose. The way their outfits are moving when they walk are interesting, especially when there is wind and when the material of the outfit is flexible.
