Last month I enjoyed putting my new street pal, the Fuji X-E1, through its paces during a lunchtime stroll around Belgravia.
Street photography is a very different genre from my usual fare, but I am enjoying dabbling in it.
I love it that with the X-E1 I can snap away without people noticing. I am even beginning to shoot from the hip, and sometimes I get a passable shot that way.
I love the contrasts you get in London, like working lads taking a lunch break under a designer advert with a distinctly effete-looking model.
Perhaps it helps with the stealth shooting that everyone is too busy looking at his/her phone to notice me!
Great shots! That last one made me laugh… the other day my sons had friends around, the TV was on (loud) I was sitting eating my lunch at the table and I turned around to find all four teenage boys with their noses in either mobiles or ipads! 🙂
I know what you mean! I have been driven to confiscating their phones until their homework is done, and you’d think I’d cut off their air supply!
Mine, exactly the same! 🙂
That last one, sheesh. It’s more common than ever these days. Loved the lunch shot on the street! Very contrasting.
Thanks. More to come…
Great change of pace. Something I haven’t yet attempted. Perhaps the shooting from the hip might help. You did great! That last one was certainly a kick.
Thanks. I wonder they don’t walk into lamp posts!
Now that would be fun to watch, but I’d want to be sitting down. 😀
You inspire me to try this next time I’m in Boston or New York. Love the men under the advert!
Love that lunch with the boys shot!!
I always feel too self-conscious shooting people but might have to try shooting from the hip!
Those are very nice. I particularly like the one with the workers taking a break in front of the designer ad.
