I have to say that street photography is not something I normally work with. I generally don’t like the idea of doing a Bruce Gilden and sticking my camera in someone’s face, but I was reading some articles last week and thought about just the general practice of walking round the street taking shots. I know these days everyone’s first thought on seeing a guy with a camera is not an especially positive one, but given that I had half a roll of Kodak Ektar sitting in my F90x and I also wanted to try out some Fuji Superia Xtra 400, I took the bit between my teeth and out I went.
Rather than try to act surreptitiously and attract negative attention I generally shot inanimate subjects but, and this was a nice surprise, on the couple of occasions I did approach someone for a picture they were happy to oblige. I took about 65 shots and came away with around 35-40 keepers. Not a bad ratio. And I love both these films in the sunshine!
