Street Hunt No19 – Street Photography in Rethymno, Greece

Street Hunt 19


Dear Readers,

Today we present you with another Street Hunt video! It is the 2nd one in just one month and this time we shot in my home town of Rethymno. I am not alone in this Street Hunt either. I have the very interesting and talented Anastasia Nazare shooting alongside me. This is the first time she has shared her photos online, since she is a very private street photographer. She uses a Ricoh GR and at night she rocks the flash.

This video was shot during the night of Tsiknopempti. I have mentioned this night in the past, and I shot Tsiknopempti street hunt videos in 2014 and 2015. . The veteran Readers might remember what this day is all about in Greece, but I would like to explain about this day for our newer Readers that might have not heard of this before.

Tsiknopempti is a very big deal in Greece. It is the day when we all celebrate the Easter fasting period a few days before the fasting begins, by eating huge quantities of grilled meat. People like to gather in the streets and grill meat on the sidewalks. They enjoy dancing and drinking and because Tsiknopempti is always just 10 days away from Carnival they also enjoy dressing up in costumes and having a lot of fun. This year, things were not as lively as they were during previous years, but we still had a very nice time shooting and discussing flash street photography.

My Gear

In this Street Hunt video I am using my APS-C Fujifilm X-Pro1 with various settings depending on my goals. I used Zone Focusing, since that is what I prefer when shooting street, especially during the night using a flash. The lens I used was the XF18mm by Fujifilm that is equivalent to 27mm full frame. I can get as close as I like with that lens. The flash I use is the EF-X20.

For the next 30 minutes, relax and enjoy Street Hunt #19 shot in Rethymno with Street Hunter Anastasia Nazare! I am sure you will have a great time. I usually like watching Street Hunts having a beer and some pizza, why not do the same thing?

As always, in addition to the video I have made a collection of all the photos I shot, and I am also sharing with you photos made and shared by Anastasia Nazare. Thank you Anastasia for shooting with me and for letting us share your work!
