Street Photography with the Fuji X100
Yesterday, myself and a few photographer friends went to see the Don Mccullin exhibition at The Imperial War Museum. It’s a must see body of work for anybody interested in photography or humanity itself. It’s simply humbling.
Whilst there, we had a quick jaunt along The South Bank and I took my Fuji X100 with me. We only walked for a short while and I only took a small amount of images. I’ve just run the card through and here are two that struck me straight away (note: both images have been processed using Nik Silver Efex pro).
As many of you will have seen with my documentary wedding photography, I’m a big fan of silhouettes and this is what drew me to the first image.
In every image I looked at that included people, there was at least one person in every frame looking or speaking on their mobile phone. The amount of people who walk around staring at their phones and missing the world go by is quite mind-boggling (and a little bit dangerous). Hence the second photograph – he could have at least faced St. Paul’s to send his text!
As I say, a very quick post and quick edits. I’m testing out a Leica M9 soon, which I’m very excited about.
