Street photography combines photojournalism and fine art to create candid captures of all that’s happening out there. Keeping up with the fast pace of busy streets means being in the right place, ready to react with your camera – and that’s not always easy. This week we're featuring a group of street photographers who have an eye for what’s happening and are ready to capture it with their Sony Alpha cameras and lenses. Take a look at their work and give them a follow. If you want the chance for your account to be featured on AlphaUniverse.com, make sure you tag your Sony photography posts with #BeAlpha. And don’t forget to follow @sonyalpha for your daily dose of Sony photo inspiration.
