Hello StreetHunters!

I travel whenever I can. The rest of the time I just walk around my city. There is always a small compact camera in my pocket ,usually loaded with B/W film. I have been doing it for 30 years and though today I use digital for my work , I still express my feelings on chemical. Tessar, Sonnar, Minotar, Ilford, are magic words to me. And these lenses/film lock my memories and give me good photos ( that are still getting published in magazines )

Hello StreetHunters!

What still amazes me is that art occurs all around us everyday –if you have a camera, quick reflexes, nerve, and some artistic instinct – you can capture art in life’s everyday occurrences. Today, if I pick up my camera and walk down a city street, I will take a picture of someone’s living dream (good or bad) – that is a bit of magic to me, that is a worthwhile endeavor.

When I was a child, my family had a shoe box filled with family candid photos from the 1950s and 1960s. That box contained a small visual history of the American Dream – photos of suburban cape houses, moms with Jackie Kennedyesque hair styles, dads in uniform, Cape Canaveral rockets, and silver Christmas trees. Importantly, those photographs documented part of my parents dream, and I appreciate that someone took the time to photograph them. That shoe box was my early inspiration to start photography.

Hello StreetHunters!

I was first into photography in my teens, when I got hold of a second hand Canon AE-1 Program 35mm film SLR. I only got back into it seriously about 3 years ago, when I bought myself a point-and-shoot Sony. When I heard about the Fuji X-series camera, I knew I had to have one. I like the XT-1 because it can be very compact with the 27mm lens, but it is also a very capable camera. The small size compared to a DSLR allows me to be stealthy on the street. I like to take candid shots best – I sometimes use the flip-up screen as a way to capture candids up-close with a wide lens. I love looking for creative ways to use light and shadow. I will often use zone-focus if I want to capture shots quickly whilst walking.

Hello StreetHunters!

I began photographing in 1962, having been given an Argus C3 rangefinder for Christmas. I was in my second year of college. I seem to know intuitively how film ASA, aperture and shutter speed worked. I took photos of my guitar, college field trips and girl friend. In 1971 I bought my first professional camera, a Nikon FTn with 105mm lens…my first look though the view finder was amazing. Travel, weddings, and my first street shooting happened with that camera. Classic landscape work got me into my Deardorff 4×5/,5×7 camera with 210mm and 90mm lenses. I contact printed the 5×7 work. There was a 25 yr break in photography. I returned to landscape work and went digital in 2005 with a Nikon D70s and then D700. These last nine months I have used one camera, one lens, the Fuji x100s exclusively. Some of you may not know that the Argus C3 was a “fixed 50mm lens” and the Fuji x100s is a “fixed 35mm equivalent lens”. So, I have gone from fixed lens rangefinder to fixed lens rangefinder! What a circle in all these years!

Hello StreetHunters!

I have been shooting since 2011 and started with macro photography taking shots of insects and flowers etc. Then had a time out from it all and sold my gear!! Then one day when walking past a camera shop where I live, I saw a FujiFlim X20 in the window, thought that looks fun. The photography bug had bitten me again but this time I decided to follow my heart and begin shooting B&W Street Photography. My inspiration came from seeing the work by Don McCullin. Seeing how he captured powerful images of people from around the world and at home in London, I just knew that this form of photography was for me.  Now I suffer with cabin fever and feel the need to be out shooting everyday trying to hone my techniques as people are more difficult to shoot than insects and flowers!!

Hey you Street Hunters out there!

To me a street photographer is a nerd that is out on the street 25 hours a day. I’m not this sort of guy as I just do not have the time I’d like to have. But photography and especially street photography is my passion. Many of my images were made in African countries some time ago. By this time I had a big fat DSLR but nowadays I’m in the mirrorless world and am convinced that this is the future. Street photography is honest. Honesty is timeless which makes so many street photos timeless. That’s why I like this great genre.

Hi everyone!

Street Photography for me is generally about having fun and trying to get into the zone that allows for those rare synchronous moments, which can more than often lead to photos worth keeping. I became interested in Photography back in the 1990’s after purchasing a Pentax P30T then moving into the big league with a Lomo LCA! – Soon after that for some reason I stopped taking images for almost a decade – I then purchased a second hand iPhone which got me back into the groove again. These days I shoot with one of mainly three cameras, which can all quite easily fit in the bag. I’m now in the process of slowly getting back into film and have recently started bringing a book along for those more lengthy train journey’s.

Hi everyone!

My name is Eddy and I live in the beautiful Rethymno. My first DSLR was a Nikon entry level. I remember while saving money to get it, I was learning how to use it and how to shoot in manual. What’s the point to get a DSLR if I shoot in auto right? I started shooting whatever was interesting to me. People, nature and random objects. Few months later I had the chance to work as a photographer. Shooting in a low light situation with speed lights was a whole different thing and I learned so many things. As the time passed, I fell in love with landscape photography and now this is what I focus on. I always have with me a notebook for my ideas, goals and photography notes. A own lens for landscape and a walkaround lens for Street Photography.

Hello Streethunters.net Readers,

My name is Martin Waltz and I’m a street photographer based in Berlin, Germany. I shoot in black and white only. I prefer to use a 28mm or a 35mm lens. For this reason I usually pack two cameras when hitting the streets. Other than the cameras I use, I pretty much need nothing more.

Hey,

I’m Dan James from Sussex, UK. I’m pretty new to street photography, and finding my style as I go. What I’m noticing attracts me most is not direct portraits and candids of people, but the traces and stories people have left on the streets themselves – weathered doors, discarded litter, abandoned buildings. The songs of the streets, written by those who’ve visited them. I’m also a big fan of simply capturing colours, shapes and perspectives that draw my attention and delight my eyes. After recently dabbling with digital again, via a Pentax DSLR and Sony NEX, both with vintage lenses, then a cheap Cybershot compact, I’ve realised it’s just not a media I can get excited about.

So I’ve returned to shooting 100% with film cameras. The experience of using these beautiful vintage objects with their unique personalities, sounds, and scents, helps me immerse more deeply in the whole experience.
