Street Hunt 3

Dear Street Hunters Readers,

This time, the Street Hunt video has been shot during the night! I use my Sony NEX-6 at various ISO settings, depending on the available ambient light and I take a walk around the Old Town of Rethymno capturing night photos. I use a fast lens mostly wide open at f1.8. The lens is a 35mm, equivalent to 50mm full frame.

During this Street Hunt I talk about some of the Night Photography tips mentioned in our previous post How to shoot Night Street Photography! Gear, Techniques and Tips discuss ways to hide in the shadows and more.

As far as the video quality is concerned, I feel that the little Sony Action cam did quite a good job recording in low light. I do visit some really dark places where there is very little light, but even so there is enough visibility that I think doesn’t ruin the Street Night Photography experience of the video.

That’s all for now, please check out the video and let me know what you think of this 2nd attempt!

Stay sharp & keep shooting!

Poll - Social Media Groups & Communities

Dear Street Hunters Readers,

We would like to know what you think about Street Hunters creating public groups on Social Networks. Not pages, groups. Through those groups, you, the Street Hunters Readers can share photos with us and each other and can participate in Competitions that we want to start having. Do you think one Group on Flickr for example is enough, or should we make groups on Facebook, GooglePlus and Flickr at the same time? Do you think that we risk splitting you, our readers, into Social Network groups? We would like to know your opinion since it is very important to us.

NOTE: This poll will be active for 1 week

Introduction

Since the summer of 2009 I have been living in the lovely little town of Rethymno in Crete, Greece. Rethymno is a small town that is located on the north shores of Crete in the mid-west part of the island. Rethymno is also the name of the county that Rethymno town is located in. Rethymno county is much larger and covers a big area from the north to the south shores of the island. I like Rethymno because of the old part of town that has a strong Venetian influence. Most of the old buildings there are still inhabited, mostly by older people or families and the narrow paths and small squares are almost always full of children playing or of older people relaxing. The reason for this is that no cars are allowed in the Old Town and this makes it safe for families to let their kids have fun in the streets, just like kids had fun in the old days. Those narrow streets and little alleys, the squares and the seaside road are where I practise my art. This is where everything started for me.

Dear Street Hunters Readers,

Starting today, and every Friday from now on, we will feature a photograph of one Street Photographer on our website. The Street Photographer that will be featured is selected by the Street Hunters team. This mini feature will be called “Street Photo of the week”.

We already have made a long list full of talented Street Photographers that we will be featuring through this weekly post, but if you would like to have one of your shots featured on our website, then please contact us by visiting http://www.streethunters.net/contact/.

Introduction

Dear Readers,

This is the second Street Hunt video posted by Street Hunters! In this video, I will visit another part of Rethymno in Crete and use a Wide Angle prime pancake lens to capture moments with a more dramatic effect.

In contradiction to video quality in the Street Hunt No1, the video quality this time is much better. I am now using an action camera that has optical steadyshot technology, producing a less shaky result. Of course the viewing angle is much wider, that is in part how steadyshot is achieved, but I think that the outcome is much more acceptable.

The video is all about the choices that a Street Photographer must make. I analyse most if not every decision I take and I try to explain why I choose to take a photograph. Sometimes the explanation makes sense and others not, please forgive me, but Street Hunters do work on instinct most of the time, since they have to “play” an unpredictable game with an unknown outcome.

That’s all for now, please check out the video and let me know what you think of this 2nd attempt!

Dear Readers,
The Holidays are upon us and it is a time of joy and gifts! A time where we usually get new things or even better we are given new things! As Street Photographers, most of us are also gadget enthusiasts and in search for the perfect camera accessories. We keep on finding ourselves on shiny eshops looking through they goodies and making our wish lists. Some of us might have basic needs, like a new camera, but others are out searching for that one thing (or many things) that will make all the difference to them the next time they are out on the street, taking photographs. What is on your wishlist this Holiday season? Have you thought about it? Well, I have thought about it and have come up with a short list. In addition I also asked the other Street Hunters what they would like for Christmas as well as some other photographer friends and this is the list filled of their awesome ideas, ideas which you might find useful!

Introduction

A Street Photographer has many camera lens options for when shooting. A Street Photographer can use a camera equipped with a zoom lens, or a prime lens. Zoom lenses provide Street Hunters with focal length flexibility but are usually bigger and not as sharp or as fast as prime lenses. So, naturally primes are widely used in Street Photography, without that being the rule of course. When someone uses primes they automatically have a lighter and smaller kit to carry around, compared to another Photographer who uses a big zoom lens which gives them some advantages in movement and stealth.

There are many different types of Prime lenses. There are ultra wide lenses, wide lenses, normal lenses, classic portrait lenses, telephoto lenses and ultra telephoto lenses.  Today, we will talk about the wide angle lenses and discuss their pros and cons in Street Photography.

Introduction

Dear Readers,

This time around instead of writing a blog post about Street Photography, I will show you a video that I recorded. This video is the first official Street Hunters “Street Hunt”! In other words it is just me walking around, talking a lot and shooting photos!

As you will see in the first minute of the video, I have purchased a small Hot Shoe to Tripod adapter or accessory. So, using that thing I have managed to connect my old beat up Flip Camera to the hot shoe of my NEX-6. That way anything my camera sees, the Flip Cam sees and records while I am on the move.

Watching this video you will get a hands on Street Hunt experience as seen through my eyes and processed through my senses. You will see what I decide to photograph, listen for what reasons I take my photos and how my images finally turn up. The photos that have been made during this Street Photography walk are not all high quality photos that I would easily share in Social Media, but they are part of the experience of this Street Hunt so I am sharing them happily with you. Some of these photos, at least two that I can think of, will be shared as photos in future posts of mine for Street Hunters.

Hello dear readers,

Our little group of enthusiastic Street Photographers or “Street Hunters” as we like to call ourselves, has gone through different changes since we first begun a few months ago. We have had Associate Street Hunters join and then leave, we have had an Associate Street Hunter “promoted” to an Official Street Hunter and member of our group and after many jingles and jangles and shifts and shakes we are now 5 of us. 4 members and an Associate. Just so you know we are:

  1. Spyros Papaspyropoulos
  2. Rob Heron
  3. Andrew Sweigart
  4. Casper Macindoe and
  5. Kenneth Lee

The five of us have decided to make some changes to our content that we hope will increase the level of interactivity of our website. We aim to do this by adding some interesting new things to our repertoire. We want to make Street Hunters more engaging and fun for you, our readers, because we want to thank you for all the support you have shown us during these past months.
