In my opinion, not much editing will be necessary for the sample photo. Straighten a bit and may crop the photos for a nice composition. The better you compose your image before you take it and have set the camera settings correctly, there really isn't much left to do in post-processing.

Now it's time to apply an Urban Preset, I actually just move into the developer mode in Lightroom and click a button and the photo looks like it does now. In the example image, the preset did all the magic. Automatically reduced blue, red, green, magenta saturation. Increased orange tones, reduced highlights, and increased shadows. The preset did all the magic, only a few corrections were needed. The color temperature a bit colder, pulled into the blue, a bit of the white slider turned up, done.

What is Urban Photography?

Most cities in the world have their own unique character. Besides the life in the streets filled with everyday life, coupled with exciting places that let you take a breath in the dynamic everyday life of the city. As a photographer, you may find the most exciting motifs exactly there. Basically, this trend is called: Urban Photography.

Urban Photography includes not only shots of buildings, cityscapes, streets, but of living spaces in their entire context. On the other hand, it can be considered in two styles, documentary and interpretive photography.

At many points, other areas of photography overlap with the subjects of street photography. In addition to the snapshot and architectural photography, it overlaps with elements of travel, people, reportage, or documentary photography.

Most Iconic Urban Photo Pioneer

Henri Cartier-Bresson was one of the earliest pioneers of street photography. "The decisive moment" is when everything comes together in perfect timing and that's when you press the shutter button. But that's exactly what happens very rarely, but I won't reveal a secret that cameras with a continuous shooting function are very helpful.

Create Candid Urban Photos

You can also include the so-called candid photography. Overall, it describes the art of taking spontaneous pictures and photographing unnoticed, but this requires bravery. You have to capture the scene quickly, but still not interfere or disturb. Eventually the person - unposed out of the situation - looks exactly into the camera. This can be happiness, pain, sadness, anger, loneliness, humor, fear, or love.

To find strong emotions in the hustle and bustle of the city is difficult to find. Therefore, to capture them you have to be quick to take the photo, but at best before people even notice you.

Lookout to Capture Interaction

I don't believe that street photography always has to involve people. I personally find interaction very important. In addition, with this in mind, you can take urban photos that show the state of society, for example or a scene that somehow triggers a feeling of nostalgia, emotions, or social criticism.

Street photography captures scenes from everyday life but does not necessarily have anything to do with streets. In conclusion, it is called so because everyday life often takes place on the streets of cities.

Where is the best place to take Street Photos?

I have found that the more people are in a place, the more interesting people there are. Because in big cities and in busy places you can expect the most interesting motives.

My favorite places are at bus stops, crosswalks, and shopping streets. For instance, find places where people have to stop for a short time, it is easier to take pictures of them than when they are moving.

This is especially important in the beginning so that there are sharp pictures. Especially the secrecy of the big city makes it easier to get to the people in the beginning. In addition, big events and fairs are also good moments to get close to people with your camera. Similarly, where there are a lot of tourists because it is much easier to take pictures and is less noticeable.

How to use the Urban Presets to enhance your street photos?

  • First, open Adobe Lightroom and select a photo to edit, click the Edit icon. Second, click Presets at the bottom of the column of editing panels to open the Presets panel. Third, click a category title in the Presets panel to access the presets in that category.
  • To preview how an Urban Preset will look on the selected photo, hover over the preset without clicking. But notice that some of the controls in the editing panels change.
    Tip: This is a useful way to teach yourself about the effects of different editing controls.
  • When you find a suitable preset you like, click the preset name to apply it to the selected photo. You can apply multiple presets to the same photo.
  • You can remove presets using the Undo or Revert to Original commands.
  • If you want more than one version of a photo, each with a different preset, choose Edit > Make a Copy. Because this creates an additional copy of the photo in your photo library.
