Shooting Film for Street Photography After a Lifetime of Digital

Shooting Film for Street Photography After a Lifetime of Digital I’ve shot digital for as long as I can remember, but for a number of years I have been considering delving into film for my street photography work. Every time I became adamant about pursuing it, I talked myself out of it. “What are you going to do with your negatives? How will you print? It’s so expensive!

In Lightroom, DNG files open and render...

Photographer Ofer Levy waited patiently in over 40° C (104° F) weather while also standing chest deep in the water hoping one of these creatures would swoop low enough to be photographed. The animal drinks by swooping down into the water and getting itself wet, then licking the water off of itself: “Fly-By Drinking” by Ofer Levy (Via Imgur. Click image to see full size.) Levy made his passion into his career and mainly does wedding photography but also loves being outdoors....

The duo trio traveled around San Francisco and shot stereotypical engagement photos showing Sikorski’s intense love for his burrito, which was dressed beautifully in foil. “With so many domesticated photos of staged afternoon picnics in the park or holding hands running along the beach, I figured people would be interested in sharing the...
