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 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.

Street Hunt No 10 - Beach Street Photography

Introduction

This time I have decided to do something a bit different and so instead of hitting the streets as I usually do, I have visited the large beach of Rethymno, my home town here in Crete and made some photos there. I made this video in mid August when the sun was scorching hot. There was lots of bright sunlight! So bright in fact that I couldn’t walk outside without a hat and sunglasses on. As you will see in the Street Hunt No 10 I start my walk from one end of the beach and walk all the way to the where the actual street ends, about 2.5 km to the east.

During my walk this time I use a film camera again. This time I use the legendary Yashica Electro 35 GTN, the model that most photographers consider the flagship Electro amongst all the versions that were ever released. Yashica guy explains everything you need to know about the Yashica Electro 35 GTN if you are interested in reading more about this amazing camera.

The concept behind this Street Hunt is to share with you each and every shot on the roll I used. A roll has 36 shots but I managed to get 37 or 38! You will notice that the experience is different to that of my digital camera. The shutter sound of the film camera is very, very silent. You can hear the manual winder cranking but sometimes the shutter release is inaudible! A perfect tool for Street Photography!

Street Hunt 09 - Street Photography Video Tutorial

Introduction

Once again I find myself in Athens, walking the busy streets of the capital of Greece and one of the noisiest cities in Europe. Bursting with life, Athens has so many stimuli that sometimes the brain automatically shuts most stuff out. I have noticed this happen to me many times, when reviewing my Street Hunt videos. I see shots I could have made, things that happened, that I didn’t notice when I was actually there, walking the streets.

In today’s video I start shooting where I left off from my previous Street Hunt #08. As I mentioned then in that video, I was going to shoot one roll of film and then end the video. That is what happened. I shot all frames and then I ended the video. But, me being me and wanting to shoot more, I had my digital Sony NEX-6 with me full of batter and with an empty SD card, just begging to be used, so I started a new Street Hunt, this one, Street Hunt #09! So, during this video I travel from Akademias avenue all the way down to Plaka that is the area under the Acropolis. I twist and turn and go up and down little streets and on the way I shoot the people of the city of Athens, doing their daily tasks. Finally I walk up from the centre of Athens all the way up to Pagrati and end the video. You might not know these areas, but I am mentioning them nevertheless just in case you ever want to retrace the Street Hunt.

YouTube Interview with Rinzi Ruiz

Rinzi Ruiz Hangout Interview

It was a complete pleasure for the Street Hunters team and guests to meet and chat with Rinzi Ruiz last Sunday evening in one of the bi-weekly hangouts.

Modest and totally committed, Rinzi was happy to share the what, where and how of his workflow and methods. From the start of his career, in the dark times of ‘layoffs’ Rinzi’s quiet immutable determination to improve himself and his skills neither shouts nor fire a flashes off in your face but rather walks, each step with a purpose. By breaking down how he works Rinzi gave insights into his planning, creation, and editing processes throughout the interview.

If you were not able to make it, we heartily recommend you watching the interview here.

Stay sharp, keep shooting!

YouTube Interview Khalik Allah

Khalik Allah inteview

In the hangout last night a couple of technical glitches. So with that in mind I would like to apologise to our American cousins whom may have thought the Hangout started an hour later than it did in reality. The cause : British Summer Time which adds an hour and it appears this doesn’t get factored in when Google publishes the event time.

And as you will find at the end of the interview Khalik is cut off mid flow. The cause : My personal internet connection. As host all the bells and whistles emanated from my computer and as the World Cup final came to a close , either peeps turned on or off their computers and my internet dropped out closing the chat abruptly.

But I insist you watch on the YouTube channel
because I for one have never been so inspired to put down my camera and leave it to the people with passion, insight, and dedication as Khalik Allah. Enjoy.

Street Hunt 08 - Film Street Photography Video Tutorial

Introduction

During this Street Photography video Tutorial I have been shooting in the busy streets of Athens, the capital of Greece. I start from a part of Athens called Pagrati, walk to an important Athenian landmark, called Kalimarmaro and then up the Athens Gardens and all the way to Syntagma Square, the centre of the city. During my walk this time I use a film camera instead of my trusty Sony NEX-6. The concept behind this Street Hunt is to share with you each and every shot on that roll. A roll has 36 shots, I manage to get 35. Unfortunately I shot one while I wasn’t recording and wasted it. So, at the end of this video you will have seen 35 film shots. You will notice that the experience is different to that of my digital camera. The shutter sound of the film camera is very, very silent, but the lack of any stabilisation technology leads to some blurry shots unfortunately. Luckily only a few.

Street Hunters video

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

The other day, Casper, Andrew and myself were having a chat about new creative ideas to share with you. We wanted to do something that would not only be inspiring and creative, but something that would involve you all, something that you could be apart of.

So, Casper came up with the awesome idea of us making a “Hello my name is XXXXXX and I am a Street Hunter” video! We thought about it for about 1 second and that was it! We loved it!

What should you do?

The general idea is that we hope to make a video collage of all of you, our awesome StreetHunters.net Readers, each and every one of you that wishes to participate in this fun process, us included! In this video you will be introducing yourself to the world, saying the following simple lines:
