编者按:
Eric Kim作为极为活跃的街头摄影超新星,在全世界范围内都有广泛的影响力。同时,也因为他大量自我营销的手段、主动与拍摄对象互动的拍摄方式,以及他非常年轻的新晋摄影师身份,在西方街头摄影界也引来不少争议。但就作品而言,他无疑是成功的。这支视频中他谈到了街拍时非常重要也是极为基础的几个重点。作为街头摄影的理论核心,对于拍摄甚至器材选用都有其指向性。
1. 不要太在意别人如何评价你的作品;
2. 把(玩器材的)钱花在学习上:读书及参加培训班;(这个观点的语境是结合他在其他访谈中提出的理论综合得出的)
3. 不要只拍一张照片就跑,绝大多数佳作都是从同一场景的数十张拍摄中拣选出来的;
4. Have fun.

以下是Eric Kim的自我介绍,摘自他的官方网站:

Eric-Kim-Street-Photographer-2014 My name is Eric Kim and I am a street photographer currently based in Berkeley, California. As an undergraduate at UCLA, I studied Sociology and combined it with my passion for photography to make statements about society through street photography.
When I started street photography, I had a difficult time finding anything on the internet on the approach of street photography. I had questions in my mind like: “How do I take a photograph of a stranger without his/her permission and not get punched in the face?” “What should I be looking for when shooting on the streets?” “What makes a great street photograph?” This blog was born out of my passion for street photography, and wanting to share the love and knowledge with others. About a year ago I got laid off my former job, which gave me the opportunity to travel the world and teach street photography workshops full-time to those wanting conquer their fear of shooting in the streets breaking out of their comfort zone.

I have taught all around the globe, including cities such as Beirut, London, Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam, Prague, Stockholm, Venice, Dubai, Mumbai, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Seoul, Saigon, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, San Francisco, New York, and Chicago. In the past I have collaborated with brands such as Leica, Fujifilm, Olympus, Ricoh, Samsung, and Ford.

I put my heart and soul into my street photography blog, and I hope you share the same passion that I do. I try my best to update the blog with tips about street photography as well as hosting inspirational street photographers from all around the globe. Not only that, but I have a huge emphasis on community, because it is about you guys, not myself.

Peace and love,
Eric
