Try your hand at street photography
Street photography is arguably the most accessible photographic genre, producing truly authentic images of local cultures and people, but it can also be one of the most intimidating types of photography to try. Arm yourself with the FUJIFILM X-T100 and these professional street photography techniques and you’ll be able to produce amazing imagery while going unnoticed...
Frame and wait
One of the easiest ways to take candid pictures of people is to find an interesting location, frame up your shot, and allow a subject to walk into the frame. If you’re already taking an image before they interrupted it, most people won’t consider that they were the intended subject matter all along. With the FUJIFILM X-T100’s tilting screen you can even compose an image without having to bring the camera up to your eye, so you’ll be even less noticeable.
Blend in with the tourists
If you’re exploring a new city, chances are that hundreds of other tourists are too. By blending in with them, you can often go unnoticed amongst locals used to their presence and constant picture taking. One effective technique is to flip out the screen of your X-T100 camera, place it at waist-height and aim the lens at your subject, before hitting the touch-shutter button. Even if the subject notices you, they’ll just think you’re yet another tourist fighting with a camera to capture an undiscovered new city.
Prefocus and visualise your image
Normally, people take images while looking through a camera’s viewfinder or at its rear display, but this can draw attention if you’re trying to shoot candid street shots. However, if the camera is hanging around your neck or at your side, and you don’t seem to be paying it any attention while pressing the shutter, most people won’t think twice about what you’re doing. By getting used to a lens’ angle of view, and manually focusing your lens at a set distance, you can manoeuvre yourself into a position for a shot without ever looking at your camera, allowing you to take that perfect candid snap.
Look for reflections
Glass, polished aluminium, puddles – reflections can be found in all of them in abundance all over cities, and they offer the opportunity to take images of the scenes they reflect, without even having to look in the same direction. Photographing reflections can be a fantastic way of adding depth and interest to an image, producing shots that intrigue the viewer.
