I’m a big fan of keeping kit to a minimum, but this guy takes it a lot further. For a lot of photographers nowadays, most work is done online and this set up covers things pretty well. I’m not sure how much writing can be done on the mini keyboard while still being comfortable, but as a quick blogging kit, it does it’s job.
Street Style is the cross over from street to fashion. It’s got a mix of both and this chap talks about how he got into it and some tips about how he goes about his work. There isn’t too much on the technical side, but it’s a nice background to that genre.
This caught my eye as it mixes street photography with fashion at Paris Fashion Week. Somewhere where the streets are filled with characters in various fashions which makes for an interesting selection of images. I like the interaction between the photographer and the subject and how quickly he worked. For those that like to interact with their subject, it’s nice to see how it’s done in a ‘target rich’ environment.
This chap Dave posts a lot of handy videos on Street Photography. For someone new to it, this is a nice intro into some the camera settings he uses. Yeah he uses a Leica and he’s got all the kit, but the theory and settings will translate to other cameras. So don’t get too caught up on the Leica thing… although they are rather nice.
Joel Meyerowitz is one of the masters of Street Photography. This is an hour long video so sit back and enjoy a master at work. Joel had a bit more hair back then and the fashions were a bit different, but walking the streets of New York or staying in one place and letting the people coming to him is something every Street Photographer needs to experience.
A nice BTS view on a Street Photography. Attaching a GoPro to our hot shoe is a great way to record a Street Photographers point of view. The commentary is also really handy to pick up a few tips and useful techniques on how to approach to approach people to get some decent portrait shots. Worth a watch.
Eric Kim is Mr Street Photography and quite a character. Full of enthusiasm for Street Photography and a wealth of knowledge. Having met him on a workshop in London, he’s a totally genuine guy and a great teacher. Eric Kim’s blog contains lots of useful info… and quite a few lists…. but it’s a great resource.
This video from Saigon is an interesting view of the place and people as well as containing some great advice.
I could watch this guy for hours, he’s so full of enthusiasm. His videos are also crammed full of useful technical tips, so don’t just watch the video, listen to what he has to say too. 45 years of experience which you cannot buy. Not sure I’d want to get on the wrong side of him though!
I found this on twitter after someone I was following gave it a go and tweeted the link. Street Photography is all about being able to have your camera ready to capture that once in a lifetime moment and sometimes camera straps can just get in the way. This really simple paracord version is a great wrist strap to keep your camera secure and also make it readily available when you need it.
I’ll be giving this a go as soon as my paracord order arrives!!
