Street Hunt video 26 - Cambridge, UK

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers hello!

Today I am happy to present to you our latest Street Hunt video, Street Hunt No26 that we shot in Cambridge, UK!

Older Street Hunt Videos

Before I continue, I would like to list all previous Street Hunt videos, in reverse order, for your convenience just in case you have missed them:

Last August I was in the UK for the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting and the London Street Photography Festival (LPSF). You can read more about his experience in my blog post “My trip to the UK, the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting and the LSPF” and the “Street Hunt No25 – The 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting in London & the LSPF” post and video. While I was in the UK this time I recorded 2 videos though. Today I am going to share with you the unseen (up to today) video that myself and guest Street Hunter John Hughes shot in Cambridge a few days before the London meeting. I really hope you enjoy it!

The Day We Filmed The Street Hunt #26 In Cambridge

I was staying at John’s place in Bury for a few days before the London meetup. The day of the Street Hunt we made sure to get up early, and have a healthy, filling breakfast to get all energised and get ready for the recording. Both John and I were very excited about this video! I had never again recorded a Street Hunt in Cambridge and John hadn’t appeared in a Street Hunt video since Street Hunt No15 – The 1st Annual Street Hunters Meeting In London. Anyway, after grabbing a bite, we walked to the bus station and hopped on a bus.  Destination: Cambridge!

The previous day we had shot in Cambridge together with Street Hunter and editor of streethunters.net Digby Fullam, so I had already got a taste of that beautiful city. As a result, I was more prepared to focus on my street photography rather than the sites as I did the day before. I had already walked around the well known parts of Cambridge and had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do. The day started at a lovely park as you will see in the video. John and I discussed the topic of patience in Street Photography and the importance of waiting at a location to catch ‘the decisive moment’. Following our small introduction we made a few shots and then headed into town. During the walk we discussed John’s work and his romantic approach to street photography which shows through in his his style, and we also talked about influences, gear and other interesting topics, but I will not divulge everything now. Watch the video and see for yourselves!

My Gear

In this video I am using my favourite setup which is my good old Fujifilm X-Pro1 with my all-time favourite lens, the ever reliable XF18mm that is equivalent to a 28mm full frame lens. In addition I am using the Yongnuo YN560 Speedlite flash. For my off-camera flashing, I am using a cable to connect my flashgun to my camera.

To record the video I have mounted a Sony ActionCam HDR-AS15 onto my camera’s hotshoe using a tripod to hotshoe adaptor that can easily be purchased on eBay or Amazon.

Ending

The Street Hunt lasted all day. We visited most popular areas of Cambridge and made quite a few shots. I have managed to squeeze our experience into a 23 minute video. I think that it is just long enough for you to enjoy your favourite beverage and a tasty snack while watching! Maybe a slice or two of pizza and a cold one?

So time to get comfortable and sit back to view our latest street hunt video shot in Cambridge, UK!
