I Suck At Street Photography – Episode 3

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.

I've been taking terrible street shots on and off since around 2014. I started this site in a attempt to better understand the process of photography and write about it at the same time. While I’m obsessed with gear like pretty much all photography nerds, I’m also obsessed with good photographs that make us feel something. I hoping that through this site my photography will develop into something that makes you feel something (other than complete disappointment, of course).
