First Crack At Street Shooting....
I've been a member for a short time and have tinkered around with a yashica minister & cosmic 35, but haven't really done much street photography.
I've been looking for a rangefinder for a little while and bought a Zorki 4K which seems to be in really good working order and also got a turret finder, Jupiter 35mm f2.8 & 50mm f2. I spent most of today out in manchester shooting in the streets, mostly candid shots & architecture.
I'd previously been using a Canon T90 as my main camera which i felt comfortable using for landscapes but felt a bit self conscious when it came to taking it on the streets. I had an absolute hoot shooting with the Zorki. I got talking to quite a few people whilst i was out shooting and ended up wandering the streets for hours shooting graffiti, people, reflections & cool buildings. I had a great time it was awesome!
I know the russian camera's sometime seem to fall foul of poor quality control & often are unreliable but it seems to be in good order. I guess i'll find out once i pick up my films tomorrow. If they turn out well i'll post a few on here.
I just wish i'd got into street shooting sooner! Although i think today I was just lucky that no-one took objection to me taking their photo.
Does anyone have any tips or advice or perhaps know some good sites with info on street photography?
