Street Photography | London

What a day to go street shooting. The “Beast from the East” was forecast but it didn’t put us off! I went with a photographer friend of mine and we spent roughly 8 hours walking and tubing around London trying to capture the streets. It was an interesting experience and was quite different from wedding photography. This was my first time shooting proper street photography and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Usually, with weddings, I’m also taking unobtrusive and candid moments but at a wedding, guests at least know you are the main photographer and therefore expect you to be taking natural photos. With street photography it was a little different –  the only thing sort of protecting you is that you could easily be a tourist with a big camera. In some ways having a big camera has it’s advantages for street photography; for one – as mentioned – looking like a tourist kind of makes you feel like others will accept your presence, and also, if you really do annoy someone to the point you may feel threatened, then you have a heavier object to throw at them whilst making an escape! I opted to keep things a little simpler on the day choosing only one camera and one lens. All the photos you see here are taken on a Nikon D750 and a Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art Lens (apart from one picture – the emoji in the window – a Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art borrowed from my friend)
