The Truth About The Best Lens For Street Photography | John Barbiaux

How many times have you read or heard that the best focal length for Street Photography is 35mm?  How about 50mm?  Wider?  Longer?  The point is, everyone is an expert on the subject and every time you read it it’s a definitive “this is the best and no other will do” statement.  Well guess what?  They are wrong. There have been many photographers who would have laughed in your face had you told them the only good Street Photography could come from a 35mm lens.  Henri Cartier-Bresson was said to have shot so often with a 50mm lens that he could “previsualize” his photographs because he was so familiar with the size of the frame.  Was he doing it wrong?  The last time I read about Street Photography I was told that a 50mm is basically a telephoto lens and it wasn’t wide enough for good Street Photography! The image at the top of the page was taken by famous Street Photographer André Kertész, known to me more recently from his book Andre Kertesz: Paris, Autumn 1963.  Perhaps not as famous as Henri Cartier-Bresson but accomplished enough to have made it into several museums, newspapers, magazines, etc. well beyond his death in 1985.  I want to share with you an excerpt from the book I mentioned above……

Paris, two primes and the Fuji X-T1 | Nick Lasure

Imagine walking the streets of Paris, or any other city for that matter, with a light weight & compact camera system that is both subtle in looks and impressive in performance. Imagine being able to smartly & quickly change settings, blend in to the crowd and get the results you want. What does this camera look like? I’ll cut right to the chase and state it’s the Fuji X-T1. Having recently switched from shooting Nikon DSLRs to Fuji mirrorless I was admittedly somewhat apprehensive taking a photo intensive trip without my trusty DSLR. I’d grown quite accustomed to shooting Nikon for nearly 10 years and wasn’t quite comfortable yet with the X-T1 before hopping on our flight to Paris. This trip would be an excellent opportunity to both further my familiarity with the X-T1 and determine if it really is a replacement of the tried & true DSLR. I brought along two prime lenses, the Fuji XF 23mm f/1.4 and the Rokinon 12mm f/2.0 for going wide. The simplicity and sharpness of shooting with only prime lenses would prove to be a great test of the camera’s abilities. There are several good reviews out there for the Fuji X-T1 so I won’t spend time rehashing what you may have read already, listing boring specs or worry about pixel peeping. Instead I’ll focus on what my main concerns are for real life shooting, favorite features and whether or not the X-T1 qualifies as ‘professional’ in my book. And perhaps more importantly, is it really the DSLR killer? …….

Street Photography with the X series | Gary Perlmutter

This article is a guide to help you choose the best Fuji X series model for street photography. Let’s start at the beginning with a bit of background. I am a professional wedding photographer whose work brings in the money that feeds my family, but it’s my passion for street photography that feeds my soul. (However I do now supplement my income by teaching street photography workshops). I have been practicing street photography since before I even realized that the pictures I were taking had a name! In that time, I have always sought to find the perfect street camera, and subsequently owned and tried every conceivable brand that includes Canon, Nikon through to the infamous Leica.To give you some further detail, these cameras included the Nikon V1 (truly underrated camera, only the small 1” sensor let it down), Leica M6 and M8 (great street cameras if like zone focusing, but for me rangefinder focusing was too slow). Leica X2 (great quality, but its AF speed was too slow and the external EVF should have been built in!). Before that, I used one of the original Canon G series compacts: this was ok but its optical viewfinder was no better than looking through a keyhole and on the latest version they have removed it altogether!

Two Steps to Make the X100s the Best Street Camera | James Conley

We previously discussed the benefits of shooting achromatic, and we’ve also discussed how to make the Fuji X100s into a high-ISO achromatic machine. This is a great first step into embracing the world of documentary street photography and getting your mind in synch with moments and gestalt. But we can do even better! {Better still, most of these tips can be used on many of the Fuji X-Series camera bodies. Street photography is about capturing moments, and moments for a photographer are about not only about being able to work fast, but also being unobtrusive. The Leica is still the gold standard for fast and unobtrusive work. After you’ve made your Fuji X100s into a Fuji Monochrom, there are two more steps to take to make the camera as Leica-like as possible. The first one is quick and easy. The last one takes some getting used to, and is optional…….

X-Photographers Spotlight | Matt Hart

I was born in Hammersmith in London, England UK. I was born Dyslexic and I struggled at school with the more academic subjects, but did very well in the Arts and Science. I found being Dyslexic more of a gift than a disability. My Dyslexia was one of the more rare forms where two areas of the brain are not connected in the Wernicke’s area and Broca’s area, so there was no hope for me to improve my academic skills. After I found out Einstein was Dyslexic along with quite a few photographers at the time, there was no holding me back. I had a dream of one day becoming a photographer. I left school with average grades and started out shooting events and weddings with 35mm film. This was short lived due to starting a family so the photography was hit and miss over the years. I am now a professional photographer shooting events and street photography, as well as teaching photographers on training courses and workshops in Street photography. I moved to the North West of England about 9 years ago to be with my girlfriend Jane, at first it was quite hard to adjust but now I find that Liverpool inspires me to take more and more images. The North West is also in a great position in the UK for me to travel up and down the country to teach courses and talk at events……

Street Photography Colour / Black and White | Matthew Hart

have been Shooting Street for a very long time now, right from as far back as I can remember so well over 40 years, it’s always been a part of me to shoot people as a subject, but when I shoot it has to be candid. True Street as I have always understood it, will not interfere with the dynamic in the street, and this is the Street Photography I love.  I know the point where you press the shutter to being spotted and getting a reaction or creating a reaction, is a very fine line involving fractions of a seconded, and find this point very well discussed in the street world. Street portraits are on the rise but I stopped asking a for portraits years back,  I do ask for the odd one or two if the subject is very exciting but hardly every post the images…..

Winter Doldrums Defeated By … Andre’ The Fuji X100s | Streetshooter

It’s no secret that Phila has not paid the Spring Summer weather service so now we have Winter. It’s ok, we just have people on the street freezing and homeless, people committing murders, divorces, marriages, babies being borne, young people and even old people dying. There’s lots going on here and maybe if I wasn’t so damn cold I could get off my azz from the couch and stop watching CNN. Well, this is called winter doldrums and it’s a disease that creeps in when the wether gets cold and stays until it warms up.  There is no known cure NOR HAS THERE EVER BEEN FOR THIS WINTER DOLDRUM SICKNESS. So a few dayz passed and Tanya said get the hell off your ass and get some exercise. I thought to my self, Shooter, maybe she’s right. So I went upstairs to the office and sat at the Mac and started exercising my fingers by typing and opening LR and looking at photos…….

How Famous Street Photographers Got Over
Their Fear of Shooting on the Street | Julius Motal

Street photography isn’t the easiest discipline. The idea of bringing one’s camera into an uncontrolled situation, where anything can happen and the scene is never the same, can be intimidating, and that’s understandable. What we thought would be helpful is a collection of experiences from several prominent street photographers about this very topic. So jump in and hear from some of the biggest names today. What is street photography? To keep it short and sweet, street photography is photographing people (although some may argue it does not need people) in their everyday lives who aren’t posing for you. If you take a photo of a street…this is not street photography. You just have to try and tell a story or capture something exceptional. It’s the biggest challenge: to make your photo interesting to the viewer. But I’m not too keen to discuss the in-depth definition as it’s just another rule / barrier to stop you shooting. I prefer to think of myself as an urban photographer rather than a street photographer. Being pigeon holed into street photography is a little too limiting considering it’s only a part of what I do, which I like to refer to as London Urban Photography. I shoot London’s diversity, in urban landscape, in people, architecture…….
