I was asked by my good mate Seng Man from Venture Photography Workshops to join him on a photowalk for the Nikon Centennial, there was about 20 peoples and we wandered the streets of Perth capturing some special moments.

Seng offered his take on Street Photography and how he shoots, very similar to myself only different and that is the beautiful thing with Street Photography we can all shoot our own way, whatever it takes to capture that illusive moment in time.

I was able to share some of my methods and ideas, and shooting a couple of stranger portraits which is always fun as it is the time you interact and have a proper conversation with your subject but that’s for another post.

Today was a great day, I attended a Perth Street Photography organised by my good mate Carlos from Carlos Arevalo Photography.  It is always great to catch up with old friends and friends that you’ve never met in rea life and also to make new friends.

Of course with a large group shooting street photography is harder to blend in with cameras everywhere, then again I was one camera in amongst 50 others (two actually, shot film as well but they aren’t developed yet).  I shot the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the 12-40mm today as I leant my favourite street lens to a mate going overseas.  Not my ideal lens but it works well and along side my Nikon F90X and a roll of Kodak Portra 400, lovely camera and expecting big results as soon as I finish the roll.

Enjoy my digital shots from the day, a mixed bunch of fun…

Following on from my previous post…
Today was the festival for Chinese New Year held in Northbridge.  They block off the streets from cars and literally there are people everywere, so busy.  There are heaps of food stalls, products stalls and even freebie giveaways.  The lion dancers are always popular, they moved up and down the street stopping for displays, smartphones and cameras come out and hundreds of photos taken.  Today I am sharing some of the photos from my gallery,  to see the rest checkout the gallerys on my streetography facebook page with the link below.
