3. Decapitation Technique
Another surrealist technique we can use in street photography is the “decapitation technique”— when we cut off the head of the subject. The reason why this works:
Also by your subjects not having a head, it makes them seem more mysterious. It gives the viewer the opportunity to “fill in the blank” by trying to imagine what the person looks like.
A photographer who did the decapitation technique very well is Mark Cohen.
Therefore to try this technique, cut off the head of your subject, by not framing in their face.
