An app like Big Lens can provide impact by throwing things out of focus

Street photography is the purest, most spontaneous way to create art with a camera. No studios, no props, no poses; all you need is the right equipment and a street with people on it. In this original series for Engadget, we’ll follow three seasoned street fighters and try to glean some practical wisdom about what engages their eyes, brains and fingers in the moments before they shoot.

The third and final street photographer in this trilogy represents a very different (and non-deferential) way of doing things. As you’re about to see, Gavin Harrison doesn’t stick to traditional ideas of what a street shot should look like, or to what sort of camera should be used to capture it. In fact, he spends more time thinking about smartphone apps than about lenses or exposure settings, and there’s a lot he can teach us.
