Street photography is not for the faint-hearted. After all, this is where you come face to face with real life in all its unpredictable glory. Unique, split-second dramas unfold without warning, and capturing them requires almost-psychic anticipation of what is about to happen – there are no retakes.
To be quick and creative requires deftness, intuition and an instinctive relationship with your kit, particularly your lenses. "What really makes a difference are lenses," says travel, street, landscape and portrait photographer Joel Santos, "because lenses shape the way you capture the world."
