Street Photography

Why choose Black and White in Street Photography? |
Street Photography London

Marius Vieth:

First of all, black and white is special, because it offers a fundamentally different visual perception of life. In case your photoreceptor cells aren’t completely dysfunctional, it’s exciting! If that wasn’t enough, you are simply holding a different pen when you are writing your photographic stories. The lack of colors and reduction to shades of black and white instantly underlines the depths of a photo – as long as it has depth. Third, black and white helps to highlight certain elements of your visual language such as textures, structures, shadows and light. Besides that, it shifts the focus to natural contrasts, which is one of the most important aspects of any great photo or painting. One more reason to to love black and white is that it helps to understand the incredible power of reduction in photography…….

New York City in Black and White | Valerie Jardin

Once again this year, I started the month of October in Paris and finished it in New York. Two of my most favorite cities. My visit to NYC was full and so rewarding! I spoke at Photo Plus Expo at the Javits Center as a Fujifilm Ambassador on Thursday and Friday, taught my street photography workshop on Saturday and Sunday and gave a lecture at the New York City Botanical Garden on Monday morning. I met so many wonderful people and spent time with some old friends as well. Does it get much better than that? Here are some of the B&W photographs I captured in the Big Apple this year. Colors to come next! ……

Is this street photography? | Adam Marelli

Any attempt to create a comprehensive definition of street photography is bound to start an argument.  I have watched entire comment threads flame out and degenerate into murderous threats over the definition of “Street Photography.”  As as far as I can tell, we are no closer to a definition then we were ten or twenty years ago.  On the one hand it is great to see so much passion behind an art subject; on the other hand, any conversation that ends up in personal attacks is missing the original point, which is how do we define what we do and does it even matter? Definitions are a slippery slope.  Many have tried and many have failed.  And actually, when we think about most great artists, usually what they are doing is expanding the definition of something.  They take a commonly accepted idea and see if they can stretch it to include what they made too. Even if you read Wikipedia’s version of Street Photography , it is a little vague and lands awfully close to Documentary photography.  But ultimately, what difference does that make? …..

Off-Camera Flash Street Photography with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 | Digby Fullam

As you may or not know, I recently made the decision to swap my DSLR for a mirrorless camera for street photography. One of the huge benefits to using DSLR cameras for photographers – and particularly DSLRs manufactured by the ‘big hitters’ Canon and Nikon – is the massive ecosystem of supported accessories available for these cameras. DSLR technology has well and truly matured now, and the fact that DSLRs have been widely used in the professional sphere for well over a decade means that supported accessories for these cameras (and most importantly a flash system) are easy to come by. By contrast mirrorless cameras as a professional and prosumer tool are newer arrivals on the block, and the flash accessories for these cameras are still developing and being refined…….

Why Fujifilm is currently the most representative brand for
street photographers | Alex Coghe

The evident fact is the big exodus that I am seeing with friends and colleagues: they are switching from DSLRs systems to a more compact system, and the most of them are choosing Fujifilm. And we are not talking just about  “aficionados” in fact I know many colleagues that as professional photographers (they are into wedding, photojournalism, fashion, editorial) decided to switch to Fujifilm X series. I have been  in contact with Fujifilm for years. We met several times, and I have closely followed their evolution as an interested photographer but also as a marketing player. I have seen the difference with other brands, especially those involved in the mirrorless market. Well, I can say many brands have failed despite their early good intentions. Often the brands failed with their lens roadmap due to demented or inconsistent choices. Also the full frame idea is not that brilliant when it comes to mirrorless. If you want compact you need to stay compact…and now I want to analyze my reasons why I consider Fujifilm the most represantive brand for street photographers……

The Fuji X100T | Cheyne Wallace

I have had my eye on the Fuji X100 series cameras for a while although I never could convince myself to fork out $1300 for a single focal length camera.  It was more of a want than a need and I already owned enough cameras so it just never made it to the top of my list. I loved the vintage styling and the small unassuming form. I had seen great photos online from the X100S and heard nothing but good things although it was still a little more than I wanted to pay for something I wasn’t entirely sure about. Earlier this year I went through an awakening and parted ways with my beloved full frame DSLR gear as I found my self wanting to carry my DSLR around with me less and less. I switched to a Sony A7II with Zeiss glass and couldn’t be happier. I wrote about this in an earlier blog post titled “Moving To Mirrorless”. This move was big for me. I had previously stated that I would never give up my Canon gear, and yet here I was listing my Canon bodies and lenses on Craigslist.  For the longest time I was basically set in the mindset that Canon is the only thing I will ever shoot but the Sony changed all that…….

The best Street Photography Cameras (&why) | Olivier Duong

While I firmly believe that the BEST camera is the one you love, some cameras are designed with street photography in mind and simply make the task easier. Instead of replying to the same emails, here’s  what I believe are the best street photography cameras & why. Any camera can be a street photography camera, but like I said above some are better than others at this task. Let me get into what to look for before diving into specific recommendations……

Toronto’s Graffiti Alley with the X100T | Alan Bulley

Fewer words this time and more pictures. Pictures of Toronto’s Graffiti Alley taken with the Fujifilm X100T, that is. I’m still in the honeymoon period with the camera so you should expect me to mention it on here… a lot. Torontonians are probably tired of seeing pictures from this stretch of brick and concrete near Queen and Spadina but it’s still an attraction for rubes like me who live in towns that don’t have alleys. Or electricity. Or indoor plumbing. (Just checking to see who’s still reading at this point. And no, I didn’t bump into Rick Mercer on a rant. Too bad.) Some of the art might not be worthy of the name, but there are many beautiful pieces that show a high degree of skill. And rather than let every square centimetre of their city be covered in eyesores, Toronto’s alley is a creative solution: a huge canvas for spray-can artists and an outdoor gallery where the rest of us can enjoy their work…….

Paris Outre | Jonas Rask

We went, we saw, we lived! This post is about Paris.  I already wrote a small essay over at x100c.com (If you haven’t seen it, go check it out), but those images were only taken using the Fujifilm X100T as is the definition of our little x100c-collective. I did also bring my other Fujifilm gear (and some Leicas as well) so I thought it would be fitting to show both my chosen X100T images as well as  some images from my X-T1. Paris is such a gorgeous city, and it really gets under your skin. I have been there many times, but each time I feel it enriches my life just a tad more….

Master your camera: Set up your Fujifilm X-T1 for street photography |
Amateur Photographer

I’m what you’d call a candid street photographer. I don’t, generally, shoot people when they know I’m looking at them. Funnily enough, my main line of work is shooting events, where I’m always talking to people, interacting, getting them to pose in a certain way; but on the street it’s the complete opposite – I don’t talk, don’t make eye contact, nothing. The Fujifilm X-T1 is perfect for that because of three key factors: the tilting screen, its speedy shooting, and its small size. People don’t recognise it as a professional-looking camera, which makes it especially perfect for the kind of photography I like to do. The Fujifilm X-T1 is a CSC, meaning I have to choose which lenses I’m going to take with me. I’ve had the 35mm f/1.4 lens attached to the front of my camera for a long time, and it’s a fine street photography lens, but I’d also like to say a word for the 16mm f/1.4……
