Street Photography 101: Dealing with the one that got away

Street photography is often a game of waiting. You find somewhere or something that looks promising but instinctively know it is missing some element. Maybe a person or a vehicle needs to enter the frame or maybe it’s the light that is not quite right. Whichever it is you know

21 for ’21

Rather than doing a traditional year end review I thought that this year I would highlight 21 of my favourite things from 2021. Books I have discovered, YouTubers I’ve come to love, other photographers as well as a few of my own images. Here goes… ONE Camera Having decided this

Lightroom and Photoshop – Creating a Portrait Composite

Inspired by this image by Australian photographer Forough Yavari which won the 2021 International Portrait Photographer of the year award I thought I would have a go at creating my own version based on this concept. Here is the final image… …and here’s how I created it using Lightroom and

Made for the Streets: Billingham Hadley Small Pro + Fujifilm X-Pro3

I have been a long time user of Billingham bags and have written a number of posts reviewing those that I have owned over the years (Billingham Hadley Pro, Billingham Hadley Digital, Billingham Hadley Large, Billingham Hadley Small, Billingham Airline Stowaway, and AVEA 5 End Pocket).

Hyperion Camera Straps Review

If, like me, you are not overly keen on the straps that are provided by camera manufacturers (especially those emblazoned with names and logos) you are probably always on the lookout for a good alternative. I first came across Hyperion Camera Straps in the online Fujilove Magazine in this review

Street Photography 101: Preset your camera

When you are walking the streets, all the while looking for an image making opportunity, the last thing you want to do is have to fiddle around setting exposure, focus, ISO etc when the image of a lifetime unfolds before you! For this reason, I always make sure I have

Street Photography 101: Always have a camera with you

In his book Think Like a Street Photographer Matt Stuart makes this observation: “If you don’t have a camera on you at all times, you’re not really a photographer; you’re just someone who saw some stuff and told people about what you saw.“ Think Like a Street Photographer – Matt

Street Photography 101: Use juxtaposition

I am relatively new to street photography by which I mean, I have been ‘dabbling’ for a few years but never really taken it seriously. Indeed, as I’ve written before, I never really saw the point of it. Recently however, I’ve begun to change my mind about street photography. Having
