Inside Never Edit’s Camera bag! (Bag No121)

Hello fellow Streethunters,

Ever since I can remember, I loved watching people: their uniqueness, their multiple expressions, emotions and behaviour. Often I had the urge to take a photo of somebody but back then I neither had the guts nor the gear to do it. In 2013, I came across the term “street photography”, thought YES!!! and have been taking photos ever since. I chose “Never Edit” for my web profiles because I never did any post-processing – lately this has changed though and I do a little bit every now and then. I live in Germany but many of my photos are taken on trips to warmer and sunnier places. I shoot whatever interests me, I love color, and using flash, but often find it difficult to get up the nerve to do so.

Fujifilm X-Pro2

Introduction

About three weeks ago our friends from Fujifilm Hellas sent us the Fujifilm X-Pro2 so we could try it out. Put it through it’s paces. Give it a whirl. You know the drill. So, what did I think of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 for Street Photography? Read on and you will soon find out!

But before we jump into the good stuff, I would like to remind you of our previous camera reviews that you might find interesting. We have written reviews on the Fujifilm X-Pro1, the Ricoh GR, the Fujifilm X-T10, the Fujifilm X-T1, the Fujifilm X70 and the Canon EOS 6D. All cameras we review here on Streethunters.net are reviewed in a particular way and under specific circumstances. They are reviewed as street photography cameras specifically. As mentioned in previous posts, we do not give a rat’s bum about pixel peeping, lens distortions, chromatic aberrations or anything like that. What matters as far as we are concerned is how the camera handles in the streets!

Now that this intro is over, let us look into the Fujifilm X-Pro2 for Street Photography!

Street Talk Episode 06 -

Introduction

Most of the times I teach a workshop or I go on a photowalk I get asked the “zone focus” question. What is funny is that although zone focusing is a very old manual focusing technique that was used by most if not all photographers before the days of autofocus technology, it seems like it has gradually been “forgotten” by younger shooters. Is zone focusing a dying focusing technique? Far from it!

Personally I use zone focusing 99% of the time and I also tap into the sweet hyperfocal distance magic spot where everything is in focus. I find it so easy and so fast, much faster than any af system. Anyway, if you want to find out more about zone focusing and hyperfocal, click play on the video below and check it out. If you are person that prefers reading to watching and you also like understanding lots of technical details, you can always visit our very popular Learn Zone Focusing and Hyperfocal Distance in Street Photography blog post. Everything you need to know about the technique is there in detail.

Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

As I have mentioned in the previous workshops post I wrote a few months ago, I really enjoy shooting with flash because I like the surreal results that come from this type of street photography. Flash Street Photography excites me and I want to share this excitement with you by teaching you about this style of shooting at my Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens.

It has now been 3 years since I started shooting Flash Street Photography and to my surprise I have found out that most people don’t really care about the flash. Some even give me the feeling that they don’t have any problem at all with Flash Street Photography. I think the reason for this is the upfront style of a flash shot that makes it a more sincere action that let’s say when one is lurking in the shadows capturing sly shots and I think that is how people see it. What I mean is there is nothing sneaky about a flash shot. It is brutally honest. There is no doubt about what the street photographer is doing. This gives me even more incentive to keep on trying this style of street photography and now I feel that I know enough to share my experiences with you.
