Perhaps you’ve noticed the recent trend on TikTok and Instagram, with street photographers approaching people, complimenting their style, and asking for a photo. I suddenly started seeing a gazillion Reels and TikTok videos like this, and there’s now a trend that mocks it… And it’s absolutely hilarious. I found a couple of videos to share, and I hope they will make this Monday a little better for you as they did for me.

I’ve personally been seeing these videos on Instagram’s Explore, as I spend way more time over there than I do on TikTok. But as it usually happens, I can’t find them when I want to find them. Anyway, the trend is the following: a photographer approaches random people, compliments their style or appearance, and asks them for a photo, filming the entire conversation. Then, at the end of the video, we get to see the resulting image. One great (and very popular) example is @iamjeanblack, so here’s a video from him to illustrate what it looks like.

This new video trend also uses a hashtag #streetphotography, so you’ll see plenty of these tongue-in-cheek videos mocking street photographers and their approach. What I personally find the funniest are the photos they end up with. Some of these almost sent my coffee through my nose!

I don’t think these videos were made to offend anyone, but I find them to be a really fun and utterly hilarious parody. And I hope that they made you smile today!

    Now, if the end images were taken at 14mm and from 20cm off the ground (because apparently that’s what counts as proper street photography these days) and converted to monochrome, it would truly be sarcastic…
