I met up with friend and fellow photographer Ted Dana today and we hit the Perth CBD and Northbridge with camera’s at the ready and try out luck at some street photography. I’m the first to admit that I tend to neglect street photography a little. I rarely take my camera with me and hit the streets to capture the raw emotion of the city. Its one of my goals for 2014 (I won’t say a resolution otherwise it will never happen!) to get out more regularly and give this street photography more of a go.
Ted and I had a different approach to the day. Ted was geared up with 2 DSLR bodies, a flash, and a bag full of gear goodies. I questioned what all that gear weighed but he assured me he wouldn’t throw his back out. I took the complete opposite approach. I had my trusty Fuji E-X1 with 1 lens and an ND filter. Thats it. Everything in one hand. Whilst I would have loved to have access to the kit Ted was carrying around (I wouldn’t like all that weight handing on the camera straps though!), I have found that in the past I’ve been bogged down with too much gear, and decided to take the less is more approach. Did that approach work? I don’t know, you be the judge.
Here are a few of the images from today.
