Street Hunt 4

Introduction

Today’s video is interesting because my Street Hunt takes place in a completely different environment to what you are used to seeing until now. This Street Photography video has been shot in Athens, the capital of Greece. A city with a great and amazing history, a city that is full of millions of interesting people!

In this Street Hunt I walk from Zografou all the way down to Gazi in the centre of Athens. It is a long walk through different versions of Athens. You will see me take photos in the cosmopolitan Panepistimiou avenue, shoot street in some other parts of the Greek capital that are more dodgy, I will speak to amazing characters to ask for Street Portraits and I will take a photo of a Red Door.

In the video I use my APS-C Sony NEX-6 with various settings, depending on the situation. The lens I use is a 35mm, equivalent to 50mm full frame. I love this lens because it is perfect for nearly any situation.

So, stick around, sit down, relax, grab a bowl of pop corn, or whatever makes you feel comfortable and enjoy this months busy, noisy, versatile Street Hunt!

Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!

A StreetHunters.net announcement

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

We have been here since June 2013, sharing our Street Photography knowledge and experiences with you while we ourselves continually learn. Thanks to your amazing support and your wonderful attitude, we have managed to continue to deliver new content (we hope of good quality!) every week!

As you have probably understood by now, besides 1 blog post every Wednesday and 1 Featured Street Photo every Friday, we also make one video a month and try to post little things as well in between. Our Flickr and GooglePlus communities are live with activity and we are enjoying interacting with you, our fantastic readers, every single day! The experience so far has been amazing and we can’t wait to do more!

Andrew, Casper and myself are all doing this because we love Street Photography. We don’t have any real free time, we are fathers, husbands, business owners, creatives and any little free time we have we gladly invest it into the StreetHunters brand to make our website a great resource for Street Photographers all over the world.

Street Photo of the week by Mickaël Liblin

Since we started this weekly Friday Feature we have been sharing with you selected photographs from Street Photographers from all around the world. Each Street Photographer has has a special style that works as a unique identifier. The list of these Street Photographers had be written by the Street Hunters team a long time ago, I think it was originally composed in October and we have been following it to the letter. The other day, Andrew, Casper and myself, thought that it would be awesome to spice this weekly feature up a bit and to start featuring some of the StreetHunters.net Readers photos in addition to Street Photographers on our list, as well as the photo of an old Master Photographer. So, that way we will get a nice mix of Friday Features that will have a famous contemporary Master Street Photographer one week, an amazing StreetHunters.net Reader the next week and an old Master Photographer the next. This way we think the Feature will be a little bit more interesting. Anyway, let us know what you think!

Street Photo of the week by Dimitris Makrygiannakis

We thought that for this week a colour photo would be best. So we looked at our list of the 50-60 Street Photographers we already have decided to promote in this weekly feature and decided to share Dr. Dimitris Makrygiannakis’s work with you this Friday.

Dimitris Makrygiannakis, a.k.a. ngravity is a gifted Street Photographer with an eye for the smart moment, the moment that can be considered symbolic. After observing his work it is obvious that Dimitris really pushes the boundaries of Street Photography, creating illusions through coinciding moments. This is very hard to achieve and needs a lot of practise and as he himself said, he wouldn’t have evolved in the way he has if he hadn’t devoted himself 100% to Street Photography for a few months. Dimitris lives and works as a doctor in Sweden and is originally from Greece.

Street Photo of the week by Sanja Buterin

Sanja Buterin is an amazing and gifted Street Photographer with a passion that can be noticed through her work. Her photography is a mixture of film and digital black and whites and covers a wide range of Street Photography styles. The versatility of her work is very enjoyable, because if offers different visual stimuli that can touch each person in a different way. She lives in Lovran, Croatia but travels as much as possible in order to capture more and more images! You can see more of Sanja Buterin’s photographic work on her Flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/prideandpassion/ or her GooglePlus profile page at https://plus.google.com/u/0/103842950754802747055/posts.

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

Bye bye pirates

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 https://www.streethunters.net/contact/.
