Street Photography & Creative Insights

Welcome

Thank you for stopping by. I’m Adam.

I am an avid street photographer. I’m fascinated by how people interact with the urban environment and the stories that come out of urban landscape photography.

When it comes to reviews, I only review gear I have personally bought, and share how I use it to be creative in the urban landscape.

…the result is always 100% your own work, not the work of computers in the camera.

This is not the Ilford, ahem, Harman colour film I’m looking for. I’ve been trying out Harman’s Phoenix 200 film and it’s not what I was hoping for. It doesn’t seem to have a unique quality, rather it seems to be trying too hard to have too many of them...

A slight shock to the system recently about one of my favourite colour films. If anyone can shed further light on this it would be appreciated, please comment below. Who is now making Fuji C200 Film? This week I bought some new Fuji 200. By chance I happened to have...

The dream of the 90s is alive with Kodak Ultramax 400. I actually get rather nostalgic for consumer grade films that were available when I was growing up in the 1990s and 2000s. The results, as in the general look of the photographs that I get from these films is...

After testing, I am confident to say this lens is sharp all the way from F2.8 to F16 and only falls over when you each F22. My test wasn’t exactly scientific. I’m not a pixel peeper. I don’t buy lenses just to test them. I buy lenses to use them....

Kodak Portra is a professional level film admired for it’s high level of detail from a very fine grain, smooth, natural colours but still with a bit of punch and richness, open shadows without crushed blacks and for being hard to blow out highlights. All this makes for a beautifully...

My Favourite Type of Photography

Street photography. Especially at night.

One of the things I love to do is walk around after sunset and photograph all the lights, shadows and look for whatever we don’t normally notice about what is happening after dark in public areas.
