In the choice of shooting mode, I suggest you use the program exposure. Street photography often requires rapid response, and many wonderful moments are fleeting. If you use program exposure, we can safely leave the parameter settings to the camera to complete, and we can focus on the shooting itself.

For street photography to have outstanding results, you need to shoot from multiple angles. The Nikon Z 50 has a flip screen that can achieve good framing effects when shooting at low and high angles. In addition, the Nikon Z 50 has 209 AF points. We can select the focus point by tapping the area on the screen that we want to focus on, which is very efficient.
Street photography is a test of the photographer’s skill. Only by constantly shooting and summarizing his own work can the level of photography be continuously improved.
