Camera Therapy: Home Vacation

I really miss my A Tip In Street Photography series. I want to continue them, but I’ve been lacking the motivation to create them. I recently went back to watch a few, hoping it would inspire me to set the camera up and share some more of my tips & tricks with you guys and… well, yeah, it didn’t really work, haha. However, it did light a spark elsewhere…

It’s been a LONG TIME since I’ve went out and really shot. I’ve perfected the 1 hour street session, it’s to the point now where I really don’t shoot beyond that. But lately, I’ve been in my bag, I’m not sure if you know what that means, but basically it means I’ve been killing shit… And this street session is a reflection of that!

Shooting Like Martin Parr

Shooting Like Martin Parr

Whenever I do anything I try to go into it with the most optimistic attitude. It’s a gift and a curse. I practice it because why would I go into something with a negative mindset? Whenever I brew up ideas and I can’t control this little voice in my head, it’s nonstop telling me how great I am and how I’m about to execute at my fullest potential. It’s horrible because, well, when that doesn’t happen you can really beat yourself up. I’ve found with this type of mindset it’s rare to find a gray area, I’m either patting myself on the back or trying to stab myself in the back… A little extreme but you get the point.

The Worst Camera Ever? Street Photography With the Galaxy S10

The Worst Camera Ever? Street Photography With the Galaxy S10

Houston… we have a problem. At least, we may. I know I haven’t been blogging as much as in the past, but if you follow me on Twitter or YouTube then that should be enough content to kind of keep up with my life (especially on Twitter, I have far too many tweets there).

However, I know everyone doesn’t engage on those platforms, so let me update you guys on something… I’ve completed ditched all things Apple and made the switch to Android and Windows. It’s been over a year now and honestly I love it… At least until now.

I Love Ann Arbor

I’ve been stepping outside of Downtown Detroit lately, mostly because I no longer live near the area, but ultimately because I’m quite bored with it. Detroit is the most talked about city and rightfully so, especially with it reemerging, but it hasn’t quite reemerged yet… It’s pretty dead in terms of foot traffic. It kind of reminds me of Chicago, not the foot traffic aspect, Chicago is booming, but if you want to photograph the locals, you have to kind of step outside of the Downtown area.

Creating Cinematic Street Photographs With The Mitakon 0.95

If I have to recommend one thing to you guys… it’s to try something new. As street photographers it’s easy for us to get caught up in our same old routine. We shoot with the same camera, the same lens at the same place… typically at the same time. Switch it up, have some fun. No one is going to revoke your “street card”.

What I’ve been doing lately is shooting with manual lenses. They make street photography more challenging (even though at times it’s difficult af) and it allows you to have some fun that you can’t really exercise with modern lenses today. For example, the ability to shoot wide open at f/0.95, that’s exactly what I did in my most recent session.
