Street Photo of the week by Maria Plotnikova

Maria Plotnikova is a Street Photographer from Moscow, Russia, that has a talent for freezing time in her own unique way. She works almost exclusively in colour and for that reason has a very good understanding of how all colours work together, mixing them and matching them in her interesting compositions with one goal, to create amazing images. Those images initially attract the viewer, they grab his/her attention for a long period of time. While the viewer is looking at her photographs, wonder and analysis comes to him / her almost instinctively. Finally after the looking and processing of the images is over, the viewer can’t stop thinking of them. They have been carved into his / her brain. That’s what good photography does to a person. Is sticks.

Street Hunters Eshop

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

As you all know, StreetHunters.net is a website that is run by myself Spyros Papaspyropoulos, Andrew Sweigart and Casper Macindoe during our free time. We are normal, average guys that all have day jobs which take up most of our day and we all have that special time in the day that we spend with our families.

We love Street Photography and we absolutely and undoubtedly adore the little brand we have managed to make, Street Hunters! We are constantly trying our best to maintain the website through updates, blog posts and other promotions. We don’t have sponsors, we don’t have backers. We fund this little blog on our own. We have added Donation buttons under each page and we are also using Google Adsense to raise a small amount of money to support the website, but the income we make is still very little and it barely pays for the hosting.

Reflections Theme Contest

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers!

It is time for the Monthly Theme Contest for June 2014!

The Monthly Theme Contest is a fun activity that anyone can participate in! Every month we choose a Theme. What we ask is for you our StreetHunters.net Readers to participate by each sending to us a Street Photograph at streethunters.net@gmail.com based on that Monthly Theme.

So for example if the theme is Freeze time, then we would like you to each send a photo with a Freeze time moment. Your photo can be taken any time in history, we don’t mind, as long as it has been taken by you and nobody else. Once you send us your picture, we will decide which are the 5 or 6 or 10 best ones and we will post them on our website.

Street Hunt 07 - Manual Focus Street Photography Video Tutorial

Introduction

Carnival season is over here in Rethymno and life is back to normal. Luckily for me and for the rest of Rethymno is that the tourist season is now on and people are beginning to visit our little town for the summer. So, things are not dull, but they are not crazy either. They are somewhat in between. This time I am in the streets at mid day, the sun is shining and the weather is hot. Most people are napping or at the beaches swimming so the town is not very busy but it is still active. More and more people will start arriving as the weeks pass and things will get more interesting, but for now the place is perfect for shooting with a Manual Focus Legacy Lens!

This Street Photography video Tutorial a.k.a. Street Hunt is all about shooting with your modern mirroless camera and high quality Legacy Glass using an adapter to connect them both. In the introduction I will talk to you a bit about how to set up your lens, what you need to do so your camera and your lens work properly and then I will hit the streets shooting manual focus with the help of focus peaking technology and zone focusing. You will notice that manual focusing is fairly easy and if done right, it can be much faster than auto focusing.

Street Photo of the week by Juha Kannisto

This week we are featuring the work of one of our own StreetHunters.net Readers that makes some truly amazing photos! Juha Kannisto is a Street Photographer from Finland that has been living in Tokyo since 1996 so naturally all of Juha’s work is from that grand, striking, pulsing, colourful city. He is passionate about using his high tech camera in combination with legacy manual glass. He loves to take control of his kit and doesn’t leave anything to chance. This combination of high tech, very high quality legacy glass and of course Juha’s incredible creativity are what lead to so many stunning photos. Juha is a prolific photographer and will not settle with one shot of a situation. One can notice this by visiting his profile on GooglePlus where he posts albums after albums of 20 – 30 – 40 photos nearly on a daily basis!

Street Photo of the week by Gareth Bragdon

Gareth Bragdon is a Street Photographer that shoots on the streets of Edinburgh, United Kingdom. He loves using the flash. Most of his photos are Candid Street Portraits of people being flashed in their faces! He has a keen eye for the weird and the different and that is what makes his photos great to look at. Expressions frozen in time, gaping mouths, wide open eyes, stunned looks and all sorts of awesome details are what one can find in one of Gareth’s daring photos! Gareth Bragdon is also part of the “Grey Skies” group of Street Photographers.

The Colour Green Poll

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

The time has come for you to vote for the best “The Colour Green” Street Photograph! We had loads of submissions once more! Exciting times! Andrew, Casper and myself had to decide which photos to add to the poll and which not. The decision was hard as it always is, but unfortunately only 10 can make it! All photos submitted are amazing!

Following the same method as previous months, we have uploaded the images for the Theme contest into a lightbox gallery and under each image we have placed a name (label) that works as a unique identifier. So, what you have to do is to write down or remember the unique identifier of the image you like the most and then vote for that image in the poll below.

You will also notice that we haven’t got any names under the photos. The reason for that is to keep the voting as unbiased as possible.

Sanja Buterin intro photo

Introduction

A while back we published a post called “The 10 most Influential Active Street Photographers“ that was about the 10 Street Photographers that are still active and that influence the Street Photography world in one way or another. Some might inspire with their work, others with the expertise and others with their overall contribution. No matter how though, the important thing is that all the people listed in the post have something to offer to the Street Photography Community. Even though most of the comments we received were positive, we also had the odd troll here and there, one of the most common asked questions was why are there no ladies listed. At first we got this question asked on Social Media Networks and then our Readers asked us on our website. Well, the answer is that we never noticed until you told us. That means that during our research we didn’t choose to look only at the work of male Street Photographers, it just happens that male Street Photographers are more active. It is just something that is what it is. What I am trying to say is that we didn’t leave out the ladies deliberately. Those comments though sparked an interest in us. We searched the internet looking for a list of Lady Street Photographers but we couldn’t seem to find one. So, we thought that since we had been asked by our Readers to add more ladies in our “The 10 most Influential Active Street Photographers“, why not make a separate post with a list of Inspirational lady Street Photographers. So, we did our research and today StreetHunters.net presents you with “25 Inspirational Ladies of Street Photography”.
