The street is my sketchbook. This is where I practice my craft so I can get better at wedding photography. One of the best places (and my favourite) is Chinatown and Kensington Market here in Toronto, as there is always something going on. The vibe is raw, yet friendly. Yes, some people turn away, but most don’t mind. If you’re ever visiting this awesome city, I highly suggest checking it out.
All of these shots were done with the Fuji X-100. I LOVE THIS CAMERA!!! It forces you to work a little hard, but that’s a good thing. Personally I would rather have a 50mm lens, but that would mean I would be in my comfort zone. The 35mm equivalent really forces me to move really close to my subjects, which can sometimes be a little bit intimidating, but I’m getting used to it. As a matter of fact, I think my photography has really improved ever since I bought it. I firmly believe that if I keep shooting with a prime, I will keep getting better and better. Gonna definitely take it to the next wedding shoot.
One day I will own a Leica M9……or M12 by that time………or maybe even the X-200 with interchangeable lenses….haha (I’m praying!). Time will tell. In the end what really matters is the image.
So just keep shooting 🙂
P.S. Thank you Steve for an awesome website! It’s a nice way to start off my day.
