Photo Tips: How to talk to Strangers No 01 | Adam Marelli

How many of us would love to photograph perfect strangers, but the idea of talking to people, let along taking their picture, seems impossible.  This is a series that looks at situations around the world, where I have met complete strangers, taken their picture and walked with more than a smile. Last year, B&H Photo invited me to speak about the topic and when they reviewed my slides they were skeptical.  They did not know if a guide on photographing strangers would be that interesting…well 132,000 views and counting it seems like there are a few people out there who would like to know how to do this more easily.  So welcome to the new series “How to talk to Strangers” and we hope that it encourages you to get out there, take some pictures and make a few unexpected friends along the way……

Street Photography Tips, Techniques and Inspirations | 121Clicks

Know Your Equipment

Whatever camera you use, you must know your equipment thoroughly. You need to have a mind map of your camera. You must now waste time struggling with the exposure dials – It must be part of your sub-conscious. You must be able to adjust the camera’s setting without removing your eye from the view finder. The only way to master this is to practice.

Check your local listings

Street Photography is not just about shooting on the streets. Anything you shoot in any public place comes under Street Photography. Check your local newspaper everyday and list out the events and incidents happening around you. Select your interesting topic or event and go there. The advantage of listings is there are always interesting photographs you can shoot……..

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…..

Review of the Fujifilm X100T for Street Photography | Eric Kim

It is a beautiful Sunday here in Dubai, and it is my day off “work”. I arrived last Wednesday from London after 2 weeks of teaching workshops, and I ended up doing a few workshops for Gulf Photo Plus (a photo organization in Dubai). I had a great time teaching the workshops here in Dubai, and also ended up shooting a lot of personal photos for myself (around 5–6 rolls of medium-format Kodak Portra 400 on my Hasselblad and a Mamiya 7 I borrowed from my friends Imraan and Mo. Anyways, I also met the Fujifilm representative (Yuta-san) and he gifted me a Fujifilm X100T (no strings attached). Fujifilm was generous enough to sponsor my 2 workshops here (a 1-day Conquer your Fear of Shooting Street Photography course, and a 3-day intensive Intermediate/Advanced Street Photography Workshop focused on projects). They let the students play with a bunch of X-T1’s, X100T’s, and lenses…..

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)……..

Street Photography and The Human Condition | Eric Kim

I always think about the meaning of life— and you can probably notice that this blog has become heavily philosophy-based the last few months. This is due to the fact that I have been thinking much more about living a purposeful life as a photographer. Not only that, but I have also had a few close encounters with death— which always prompts myself to ask why I shoot photography, and what kind of life I want to live. In this “search for meaning” — I recently came across the Wikipedia page for “Human Condition.” I never really considered or thought what the phrase “the human condition” referred to. I know it is often thrown around in street-photography circles, so I inspected the page closely. It defines the “human condition” as the following:

“The human condition encompasses the unique features of being human, particularly the ultimate concerns of human existence. It can be described as the unalterable part of humanity that is inherent and innate to human beings and not dependent on factors such as gender, race, culture, or class. It includes concerns such as the meaning of life, the search for gratification, the sense of curiosity, the inevitability of isolation, and the awareness of the inescapability of death.“ ……
