Street Hunt No17 - Street Photography in Rome, Italy

Introduction

2 weeks ago Digby and myself went to Rome to film a new Street Hunt video. Rome is a magical city, truly eternal and magnificent and I highly recommend you visit it to shoot in its streets. You can read more about our experience there in the Rome Street Hunt post we released when we got back from our trip. In that post I mentioned our days in Rome but left out the details of the actual Street Hunt day so I could give you all a thorough report today, on the day we posted the video on our YouTube channel.

Street Hunt No16 - Street Photography in Istanbul, Turkey

Introduction

3 weeks ago when I returned from this amazing Street Hunt in Istanbul I wrote a post in which I shared the experiences I had during my stay in that amazing city. I was in Istanbul for 5 days and each day was special for its own reasons. Even though I have shared nearly all experiences from that trip, I deliberately left out details about the actual Street Hunt day. I thought that it would be much better to include the details of the day we filmed the Street Hunt in this post.

This Street Hunt was Street Hunt number 16 and it was sponsored by our amazing friends at COSYSPEED. COSYSPEED has supported www.streethunters.net for the second time and we are ever grateful. Plans for future collaborations exist and will be announced in due time, so stay tuned for more exotic trips in the future! Thanks COSYSPEED.

Rome Street Hunt

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

As you all know about a couple of weeks ago we visited Istanbul in Turkey to film the second Cosyspeed sponsored Street Hunt. We had an amazing time and managed to capture some cool shots of the life in that busy and versatile city.

In June we visited London, UK for the 1st Annual Street Hunters Meeting and wow we really enjoyed shooting there! We have made a nice big Street Hunt video you can watch if you haven’t already.

Street Hunt No 14 - Off camera flash Street Photography

Introduction

People from all around the world visit Rethymno in Crete during Carnival time. The atmosphere, the people, the buzz and the electricity in the air during Carnival season is invigorating and refreshing, especially for a small town like Rethymno. Carnival is a big thing here and everyone prepares for this day months in advance. Hotels, rooms, suites & villas are over booked and packed with visitors. Groups fly in from the USA, Europe and Asia. There is a real mix of cultures and everyone is happy, excited and ready to party! I am sure that you will get a glimpse of the Rethymno Carnival fever through the Street Hunt #14 video below.

Street Hunt No 13 - Off camera flash Street Photography

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

Every year in my home town of Rethymno in Crete, there is a time for carnival festivities. It is a season that lasts around a couple of weeks and it transforms my little town into a surreal place, filled with the most amazing people that gather from all over Greece. There are 3 major events that take place during that time. The first one is what we call “Tsiknopempti” which is a day when all Greeks celebrate by eating grilled meat. The second big event, one week later, is the Carnival Night Parade that starts on a Saturday night and ends early in the morning and the third and most important event is the actual Carnival Day that is full of parades, dancing, laughing and celebrations. During that time Rethymno is always overbooked and overcrowded and everyone is happy! That means that everyone loves to have their photo taken too, so it is an ideal place to be if you are a Street Photographer like me.

This Street Hunt was recorded on Tsiknopempti night, the first of the three major events mentioned above.

Street Hunt No 12 - Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

About a month ago, on the 12th of December to be precise, I flew to Hamburg in Germany to record a Street Hunt video, sponsored by our friends at Cosyspeed. Cosyspeed for all of you that don’t know is the German company that makes the high quality Camslinger camera bags that can be worn around your waist or your shoulder. My trip lasted from the 12th of December to the 15th of December and 2 days after I returned to my base in Crete, I wrote a detailed post about my experiences there as a Street Hunter. If you haven’t read the post “Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany”, I recommend you give it a read before you watch today’s Street Hunt video, as it will prepare you nicely for what you will see.

Visiting a foreign city and country to film a Street Hunt was a challenge for me. I was concerned about the German laws of privacy a lot before my trip and I was trying to think of ways to photograph in the street without showing faces. I had a talk with Thomas Ludwig of Cosyspeed before I arrived to Germany and he reassured me not to worry. After a few minutes of Street Hunting in Hamburg, I saw that the people of the city didn’t mind to be photographed. Some reacted very positively to it and that was a pleasant surprise to me.

Street Hunt No 11 - Film Street Photography in Iraklio, Crete

Introduction

I had been thinking that I have been doing many Street Hunts in the town I live in, Rethymno. I got worried that you guys might have got bored of looking at the same streets all the time, so I decided to jump into the car and drive 80km to Iraklio the largest city of Crete and capital of the island. Iraklio is one of the largest cities in Greece and has a rich history. I will not get into that at the moment, but if you are interested to look it up, just click on this wikipedia link about Iraklio or Heraklion. I went with Digby Fullam a Rethymno based English StreetHunters.net Reader that also helped me film the intro to this video. Thank you for that Digby!

This walk is quite interesting because I am using a Camera I haven’t used before on a Street Hunt and also because I find myself experiencing dramatic weather changes throughout the course of the recording. Luckily I was carrying an umbrella, because as you will see there is rain, sun, wind and of course people that I have to tackle with before managing to finish the film and complete the video. But I had a blast! I had to change camera settings nearly before each shot I made, due to the rapid weather changes which made things for me even more complicating.
