Street Photography

Berlin | Gabor Nagy

Few weeks ago we spent a couple of days in Berlin and it happened to be the weekend when Germany celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. I only found out about our trip a day before we travelled, it was a surprise from my wife Anita. So off we went with our little daughter Hanna to discover what Berlin has to offer on that amazing weekend. Since I completely moved to mirrorless system, I don’t really have trouble with the weight of my gear. I always have my X100s with me and this time I packed the Fuji X-T1 with the 35mm lens attached to it and of course loads of spare batteries. Berlin is a fantastic city and it’s not really hard to fall in love with it. It has amazing culture, rich history, sleek architecture, great places to eat and even better cafes but it also has a gritty side with plenty of street arts and graffitis which I found more fascinating. Combine my interest in street photography and Anita’s knowledge in speciality coffee, Berlin managed to offer a lot to both of us and Hanna loved it too……

Street Beats – Toronto with the X-Pro1 and
Some Scary Mean Dude | Peter Evans

Toronto. City of Scott Pilgrim, craft beer, trams, music and skyscrapers. But was it going to be a city prime for street photography? Or one where the hapless Brit with a Fuji camera get the ever-loving crap beaten out of him? In planning my photography expedition to the rust-belt town of Bradford, PA, it seemed odd to me that the cheapest way of getting there wasn’t to fly to Pittsburgh and coach it up but instead to fly over to Toronto in Canada and catch the Greyhound over the border. Once in Buffalo, it was simply a ninety mile road trip south. Not that I was complaining about getting the chance to see Toronto. I’d been a little in awe of it ever since that wonderful film Scott Pilgrim. It’s a big city and getting bigger, and if you go and catch a film set in New York, chances are its actually filmed in Toronto. But I didn’t have long there; a mere few days to hang out with a friend, drink some fine beer and go walking the streets, taking pictures. Unfortunately visiting Toronto didn’t turn out as pleasant as I hoped. Indeed, it was there that photography, for the first time, got me a nasty beating…

Fuji X-Pro1: Set-Up for Street Photography – Part I |
Marco Sobrevinas

From 1981 to 2009, I used a Leica M rangefinder system continuously.   As most practitioners of the art know, the Leica M, with its simple, optical view of the world, small size and ease of pre-setting controls, made it the supreme tool for street photography. In the winter of 2014, I finally got around to looking at the Fuji X system. I was especially attracted to the X-Pro1 body. Its optical finder and interchangeable lens capability really brought me back to my old Leica M system, which I had become comfortable with, for nearly 30 years of daily use. Over this past year since I’ve owned the Fuji X-Pro1, I’ve discovered a way to set up the camera to make it work for me. This is by no means the only the way to use the Fuji X-Pro1 for street work. But it’s what I’ve figured out from using the camera on the street, over dozens of hours. With this set-up, I’ve found the Fuji X-Pro1 becomes a quick-reacting, responsive and invisible partner for me, when I’m shooting on the street. Very similar, although not identical, in the way I shot with the Leica M rangefinder. In addition, I’ll also cover the equally important set-up choices beyond the camera and lens. Namely, the shoulder strap, camera bag or pouch, and the importance of great footwear…..

The Fuji X-T1, the 56mm f1.2 lens and the City | Gabor Nagy

Ok, the tittle says it all and the city is still Dublin. When I go for a photo walk I normally use my little X100s, that’s is the camera I always have with me. Although it took a little while to get use to it, I was always a 50mm guy, rather than 35mm, but now I love to shoot streets with both focal lengths. What about the 56mm f1.2 lens that I acquired last summer. Well so far I used it for weddings, portraits and product shots, but not during my photo walks. And I love this lens, it’s fast, super sharp, still small and doesn’t weight a ton. It’s probably not people’s first choice for street photography, on Fuji’s APS-C sensor it translates into 85mm, but needles to say I really enjoyed using it on the streets. The last couple of occasions I headed into the city I limited myself to the Fuji X-T1 with the aforementioned lens attached to it and here are some of the results from this experiment, they are also part of my Streets of Dublin collection. Enjoy. …..

My City | Neill Soden

I am no expert in the politics or issues of my country. Nor am I a pure street photographer. But I do like to tell stories of my country’s people and the city I live in with my images. Now, in my city Johannesburg – Jozi or Joburg as locals call it – we have areas where you would avoid going alone, especially with a camera. But there is a number of good things happing all over the city, thanks to some very cool and interesting projects. I took a few other photographers for a little walk in one of these areas, called the Maboneng Precinct. It is safe, has a good vibe and is a great place for food and social……..

A Day In The City | Ugo Cei

Ever since I saw some photos by Alex Lambrechts, I’ve been wanting to do a shoot mixing street and fashion photography and finally the dream has become reality. A few weeks ago, I contacted a friend of a friend who does some modeling and hired her for a couple hours. We went to Milan and I asked her to just walk around or interact with people on the street, pretending to ask directions, sitting in a café, looking at books in a stall, or talking on the phone. In the end I got some nice ones. Even though they are staged, I  think they have a candid street look to them, whereas I wasn’t really able to convey the fashion aspect. I just can’t pretend to be as good as Lambrechts after one day, but I’m reasonably happy with the results and we had lots of fun doing this. An experience to be repeated, for sure. I shot everything with the Fuji X-E2, alternating between the 35mm F1.4 and the 60mm F2.4 lenses. We also shot some posed portraits that aren’t included in the gallery below, but are in this Sticky Album (open the link on your mobile device to add the album to your home screen)……..

LNDNWLK 2.0 – Taking online friendships offline | MirrorLessons

Too many times have I heard the complaint that social media, despite the connotation of its name, has rendered us more antisocial than ever before. Locked away in our rooms, we chat with individuals who play no part in our actual day-to-day existence, tricking ourselves into believing that our social life is much richer than it actually is. This is why Mathieu and I are both firm believers that the “social media cycle” isn’t complete until online relationships are taken offline. As friendly as you can become with people via a social platform such as Twitter or Google+, there is nothing quite comparable to meeting someone face-to-face……
 
The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, the USA, Canada and the UK–eight nations enjoying one another’s company under one roof in the cosmopolitan city of London, all thanks to relationships being taken from the superficial online realm to the geniune offline world. This is the true definition of social media, and the spirit with which LNDNWLK came into being……..
