NYC Street Photography - Fujifilm C200
Street photography, also sometimes called candid photography, is photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places.

A few weeks ago, my friend Chris and I walked around NYC while I tested a $10 thrifted camera. Here are my shots from that day.

All photos were taken with a Canon AF35 with Fujifilm C200 Color film

NYFW Street Style Pictures + What I've Learned

Fashion Week is exciting - from the clothes to the music and the events. I've always wanted to shoot street style pictures at Fashion Week, so after the shows/events, I took my camera out and gave it try. 

All of the photos below were taken with Ilford HP5.

What I've learned from Fashion Week...

Get to the events early - Getting to the events early gives you time to look around and find an ideal spot to wait. Always look for backgrounds that aren't too distracting or objects that take away from the finished photo. 

What to look for -  Look for trends, styles, or patterns. 

Network - When I get invited to events or shows I make it a point to build new relationships and maintain relationships with people I've already met. You'll be surprised how many new connections you can make in a brief amount of time.

Light - When shooting street style it's important to understand where lighting is coming from and how it's going to shine or reflect on the subject you are photographing.  Don't be afraid to move around and try different angles.
