Street Photography

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……

A concise city guide for photographers | Ming Thein

Updated from the 2012 version: my concise city guide for photographers. I’ve added many cities to the list since the first edition, and things have of course changed. This guide is a shortlist of places worth visiting, places to be avoided, and places if you like a challenge… It’s organized by city, in alphabetical order. Name links lead you to any other posts tagged from that location – usually photoessays – to help you get a better idea of what to expect. Certain destinations also have a vicarious travel/photographic guide in the form of a How To See episode – links for those are included, too……..

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……

Mirrorless Magic | Patrice Michellon

French photographer, Patrice Michellon, talks about his switch to mirrorless cameras and shares how he combines Replichrome and the Fuji X Series cameras to make mirrorless magic. Tell us about yourself, both personally and professionally. How long have you been making photos? How did you get started? I’m French and German and I live in Paris, although I probably spend 1/3 of the year outside of France for business reasons (which have absolutely nothing to do with photography). I discovered photography with the introduction of digital cameras and only really started to take it more seriously in 2012. A friend of mine saw some of my pictures and asked me to shoot his wedding. Since then it’s been like a drug; there’s not a single day without thinking, reading, discovering and talking about photography……..

Day out with two X-T10s in Liverpool | Matthew Hart

Today I decided to have a few hours in Liverpool out on the streets to see what I could find. I went out with a pair of Fujifilm X-T10s, is the first time I have been out with a pair of matching cameras for quite a while.  I had to decide on what lenses to take as I have had the 35mm f/1.4 bolted to my X-T1 for ages but I wanted to go wider. I did put the 16mm f/1.4 on to start with but I decided I wanted something smaller and lighter on the X-T10 so went for the 18mm f/2  for one body and the 60mm F/2.4 for the other body.  I don’t think the 60mm has as much reach as I need so can’t wait to get my hands on the new 90mm f/2……

Street photography with the Fuji X100T | William Lonsdale

Opinions on what is real street photography are wide and varied ranging from they can only be of people, only be candid, only using prime lenses, only without a flash. It’s such a bone of contention but you get the idea. Myself, I’ll simply say that if your outdoors on a street (or built up area) and you’ve taken a photo I’m happy to let it slide. The thing is, photography is a subjective area and no matter what you’re discussing there will always be a dozen opinions. I’m not even going to approach the question of; Is photography an art form? (many believe it’s not). So now I’ve got that out of the way, I went out into one of the local towns with my Fuji X100T to do some street photography. I had a remit, which was ‚Dark & Gloomy‘ and hit the streets. I got some average sort of images but it wasn’t about getting that elusive ‚the image‘ (although I’d have been pleased if that had happened) it was about getting out there with camera in hand, exploring and capturing something……..
