Welcome back to I suck at street photography, a new and poorly made POV YouTube series about trying to improve my poor street photography by getting out and shooting more. I’m tired of coming home with shots I’m not super proud of, so join me in this weekly POV series where I intend on doing my best at improving.
This week we’re on the streets of Richmond in the now starting to get back to normal Victoria Street area. Things are starting to open up a bit more now COVID19 is starting to decline, which is encouraging. Slowly the streets are returning to normal as people are gain the confidence to head back outside. I chose this spot because it’s quite an interesting location in Melbourne because it’s like a small town, rather than a big city. Probably spent a bit too much time out front of the fish market, but it was a fun day out so I don’t regret lingering.
I shot this episode with the Leica M9 and the Minolta 28mm M-Rokkor, which I love dearly. The M-Rokkor is ancient in terms of lenses and the M9 is ancient in terms of digital cameras: a perfect match!
Unfortunately, the GoPro died and cut off the last few minutes of footage, so I’ve just included them at the end – if that interests you in the slightest.
Join me every week for more POV, street and general horrible content. Thanks for reading and watching.
