Queen Street

Street photography is not something for every photographer. Getting out there and taking pictures of random strangers in the street. Sure you get some people who turn away, or make a face, or even confront you about it. But for the most part, people are generally unaware. Back in August I went out and wandered up then down Queen Street in Toronto along with some fellow film photographers to capture a little slice of life on a typical Saturday afternoon in the city.

Probably one of my favourite combos for shooting in the Street is my Nikon F4 and 105mm f/2 lens sure not a ‘typical’ setup for street many famous ones perfering to work with rangefinder cameras and short lenses. But the 105mm is just that ‘perfect’ focal length for what I like to shoot and how I like the final images to look. A nice level of seperation between me and the subject without being too distant.

Look Right

Film of course is my favourite, Kodak Tri-X, purchased fresh that day from Downtown Camera. Something I’ve been doing more of, when I go on photo walks and trips I go and buy fresh film. Better results and keeps the companies and local stores knowing that there are still people out there who support film. And I mean, you can’t beat the classic Tri-X.
