New York City Street Photographer, Joe Wigfall

In reading though some of your great posts, several themes have come up.

What is street photography? What does your editing process of delete, keepers, good enough to post gauntlet look like? How do you tend to shoot street - from the viewfinder, from the LCD or the hip?

I've posted a YouTube video of Joe Wigfall a New York City street photographer many of us know and admire that touches (however briefly) on these topics. He was the winner of the 2008 WNYC street shot contest. It's a treat to see Joe in action! If you're interested check it out here: http://goo.gl/7DXll

Joel Meyerowitz - "What you put in the frame determines the photograph"

Classic Meyerowtiz - interesting, insightful and as good with his use of words as he is with a camera. IMHO, one of the handful of street photographers that can really articulate well what all goes on out there on the streets. Enjoy!
