A photog on one of the photo forums asked whether street photos should be gritty or not. He seemed to feel that is they are not rough looking they are not authentic street photography. There are cases when a street photo looks too clean and smacks of being staged. Then you rely on the photog telling the truth as to if it was a set up shot.

Well, there are no photo police. As such, we can do as we like…we can make it clean or make it rough. Personally I like my street / doc work to be as clean as possible.

Some photogs think if they make a photo high contrast, add some grain and a vignette it will make it a winner. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. Generally any grittiness in my pix comes from having to push an image.  I generally don’t try to add lots of grain, contrast or grittiness. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule where I may stray from my policy.

Other times grittiness comes with the territory…
