10 Reasons I Love Street Photography Digby cover

I have been dreading this day. You have probably noticed that we three Streethunters editors take it in turns to write a ‘big’ article every week. We call them feature posts, and it’s a chance for us to wax lyrical about anything street photography we like. Andrew will often put out an awesome book review or a comprehensive under the influence analysis of some cracking street photographer, and Spyros will review some street photography gear, launch a new street hunt video, or debrief about the latest street photography jaunt he’s been on. Well, this week was my turn, and I had nothing. Zilch. Nada. I was utterly bereft of ideas of what to write about. I’ve had some things going on over the last few weeks which has meant that street photography has had to take a bit of a back seat. Without being able to get out and about with my camera I’ve been a bit stuck for inspiration. So I started to look through some of the old articles on the streethunters.net website. And I hit a goldmine. Both Andrew and Spyros have picked the 10 reasons why they love street photography, but since I’ve joined the team I haven’t got round to it. And what better way to rekindle my passion and get myself back in the groove than remind myself why street photography is so awesome in the first place? So, strap in for the 10 reasons why I love street photography!

Using a 35mm Lens for Street Photography Cover

Introduction

We all like to chop and change our lens selections from time to time. One of the things I have discovered as I have practiced street photography more and more is that a prime lens is perfect for street photography. There are several reasons for this, but that’s a story for another time. But once you’ve decided that you prefer prime lenses over zoom lenses for street photography a problem presents itself. Which focal length should you choose? After all, you can’t simply switch focal lengths as you would with a zoom lens. You may remember a while back I wrote about my experiences using a 50mm lens for street photography. I’ve also talked about why I currently feel that the 28mm is the perfect street photography lens. This time round I’ve decided to focus on the photojournalist’s holy grail – the 35mm lens. So read on for my pros and cons of using a 35mm lens for street photography!

Action Cam Street Photography Cover

Street Photography with the Sony HDR-AS20 Action Cam

Recently I decided to try something alternative with my street photography. I’m finding that the more different cameras I shoot with, the more I learn about photography and the more I broaden my skills and experience. So far my street photography has been focused on shooting with dedicated cameras – namely DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. I haven’t yet tried my hand at street photography with a smartphone, although I intend to.

Action Cam Street Photography 1

Those of you who are familiar with our street hunt videos will be aware that we shoot our videos by mounting ‘action cams’ in a rig on the hotshoes of our cameras. The weapon of choice for both Spyros Papaspyropoulos and myself is two variants of the Sony HDR-AS Action Cam. This is essentially Sony’s rival to the GoPro. They offer 1080p HD video as well as absolutely essential (for our videos) image stabilisation. I used the Sony a couple of times for still photos on the beach and in the pool, and I was pretty impressed with the image quality from the 11.9MP Exmor sensor, as well as the effects from the super wide angle lens. I decided that this, combined with the action cam’s tiny size, might make for an interesting combination on the streets. So I tried using the Sony HDR-AS20 action cam for street photography. Here’s what I learned:

Street Hunt 20 - Rethymno Carnival

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

It has been a while since our last Street Hunt video release but the wait is now over. After a couple months of shooting, organising content and producing this video it is time for you all to enjoy it.

Today, we will take you on a tour of Rethymno city in Crete during the 2016 Carnival day. We start our video in the heart of the carnival parade and just let loose and go with the flow, following the fun around each corner until we reach a most unexpected finale. I say we, because this time the team is made of four street photographers. Digby Fullam editor of Streethunters.net, Dan Berntsson street photographer and good friend from Sweden, Anastasia Nazare street photographer and good friend from Greece and myself.

Does Your Camera Even Matter Cover

NOTE: This is a Guest Blog post written by Patrick Walkowicz exclusively for www.streethunters.net.


Since the first digital cameras were introduced, we’ve seen a rapid technology development over the years. While more than a decade ago it was a luxury to have a camera that produced a clean ISO 800, today’s cameras offer a great picture quality at ISO 6400 and higher. Along with the digital sensor technology advancements came quick and increasingly reliable autofocus, continuous shooting modes, instant picture preview and constantly growing and virtually unlimited storage capacity. Camera manufacturers are competing against one another, releasing even more capable cameras each year. Better high ISO performance, more frames per second in continuous mode, wider dynamic range and better AF performance dominate the headlines with each new camera release. Today’s top camera will be obsolete in 5 years or mediocre at best. This provokes a question – how much is enough? What’s the point of technology advancement where only you and your skills can be a limitation to taking great photographs?

After all, street photography masters a few decades ago didn’t have AF, an ability to choose ISO for each shot, continuous shooting mode, or even a built-in light meter.

New Rules

So, from now on, you will be asked to submit your photos, just as you always did but we will not select the TOP 10 and share them with you so you can vote for your favourite. What we will do is share ALL photos with you and we will then each pick a personal favourite photo. Then Andrew picks one, Digby picks one and I pick one. The 3 photos we select are presented as the month’s finalists and are announced sometime in the middle of each month. 10-15 days later, we announce the winning photo of the 3 finalists.

Street Hunt 19

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

Today we present you with another Street Hunt video! It is the 2nd one in just one month and this time we shot in my home town of Rethymno. I am not alone in this Street Hunt either. I have the very interesting and talented Anastasia Nazare shooting alongside me. This is the first time she has shared her photos online, since she is a very private street photographer. She uses a Ricoh GR and at night she rocks the flash.

This video was shot during the night of Tsiknopempti. I have mentioned this night in the past, and I shot Tsiknopempti street hunt videos in 2014 and 2015. . The veteran Streethunters.net Readers might remember what this day is all about in Greece, but I would like to explain about this day for our newer Readers that might have not heard of this before.
