living mannequins "done up" by a local salon. "spectators" vote with dollars for their favorite mannequin, who represent different charities in town...

Although the photo compositions are awkward it looks like the music was really something to see out there on the street, it's not easy to carry around a couple full sized bass's.

the girls with the violins, were hopping and jumping around so getting them in the same shot as their parents was tricky...

was more or a photo-journalism type shot than an artistic type, since i didnt ask them to all stand together while they were playing...


Totally understood, that is what street performances are all about and I do say you captured the moments quite well...

Street performer shots are some of the easiest performance shots to get because there are no rules. Get the exposure and focus correct and that's a great start and an excellent place to start and learn how to shoot live subjects.

These shots shared are so wonderful. I loved them all. Unfortunately, I don't have the shot of Performing Arts :(
Do wish to capture one soon. I would love to have instructions that would be helpful to do the same.

There are no rules period or shouldn't be anyway.

Here are some great words of wisdom by some of the greatest to push a shutter.

A little video by one of the greats.
https://vimeo.com/1166​92462 (external link) It's short and really worth a watch.

And some words by some of the greats.

"When subject matter is forced to fit into preconceived patterns, there can be no freshness of vision. Following rules of composition can only lead to a tedious repetition of pictorial cliches." - Edward Weston

"There are no rules and regulations for perfect composition. If there were we would be able to put all the information into a computer and would come out with a masterpiece. We know that's impossible. You have to compose by the seat of your pants." - Arnold Newman

"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs." - Ansel Adams

[I]"And in not learning the rules, I was free. I always say, you're either defined by the medium or you redefine the medium in terms of your needs."
- Duane Michals

"There are no shortcuts, no rules." - Paul Strand

"Photography is not a sport. It has no rules. Everything must be dared and tried!" - Bill Brandt

"I came from the outside, the rules of photography didn't interest me... "-William Klein

"...... a photograph can look any way. Or, there's no way a photograph has to look (beyond being an illusion of a literal description). Or, there are no external or abstract or preconceived rules of design that can apply to still photographs. "-Garry Winogrand

and maybe my favorite " ......so called “composition” becomes a personal thing, to be developed along with technique, as a personal way of seeing." - Edward Weston

That is what I was trying to say in the first place, thanks for the confirmation.
