In January 2015, Matt Hart organised a free photo walk around Liverpool. It was a cold and very windy day but there was a great turn out with over 100 photographers.
I chose my Fuji X100s for this walk. I wouldn’t have to worry about carrying a lot of kit with me and if the weather got too bad at least it would fit in my pocket if I needed to protect it.
Here are my shots from the day. A big thanks to Matt for organising it. I look forward to attending more of his events and hopefully a workshop or two as well.
After an enjoyable time in London taking street portraits, I’ve been out and about closer to my home in Cheshire. Chester is not far from where I live and Frodsham, the town I live in, has a bustling community with lots of great faces to capture.
This is a collection of my street portraits taken around Frodsham.
In November 2014 I was lucky enough to get a place on a Street Photography workshop run by Eric Kim. I wrote a longer post about the weekend on my Photography Basics site. It was a great weekend, I learnt lots and was very happy with the street portraits I got with the guidance of Eric and the other people attending the workshop.
While I was taking these street portraits, I really enjoyed chatting to the subjects rather than just taking a quick photo and walking off. A smile and a pleasant attitude is all that you need most of the time.
Attending a workshop like this has also spurred me on to run workshops myself in the future. Hopefully the not too distant future.
Anyway, this is my collection of London Street Portraits. I use a Fuji X100s for all of these, a fabulous camera for digital street photography.
