Chicago is a great place to do streetphotography. It’s a city that is full of life, full of great places and great opportunities to shoot.
I like a lot the city as many of the cool spots are walking distance, or you can take the subway which is also a great place to shot.
Compared with New York, I liked that Chicago is not so crowded, and this is also great for photography as you find and shoot interesting people in the street.
Let me know in the comments section, which are your favorite city’s to do street photography.
Here some images that I recently shoot in Chicago, all of them were shot thought a window! Try it if you want to lose the fear to shot strangers!
Whether results that you will get are great, I like it because you can really capture candid moments in the streets.
Have a great day!
Five months ago I decided to upgrade my gear, I was tempted to choose a Nikon DSLR Full frame, as my previous was not full frame (Nikon D7100) but I decided that this was not the right choice as my primary shooting style is street photography and a DSLR is a very big for my purpose.
The other alternative was to buy a Mirrorless system, I like some of these cameras; especially because of its size, however the one that I have (Olympus OMD Mark II) is very good for street photography but its image quality is not as good as the photos that I can take with my Nikon D7100 camera. I decided that was not a good choice as I wanted to start printing my photos…
So what? I research and I found a camera that have both worlds, small enough for street photography with super image quality. My choice was the Leica Q…. You will ask why not to wait for the Leica Q2 as it was just announced… The price difference was 2X, while the Leica Q2 is at aprox, $5500usd, a used Leica Q in very good conditions was at $2,300usd. So to save that money I decided that the Leica Q was the perfect choice for me…
And guess what? The Leica Q has overpassed all my expectations.
Here some images that I have took with the Leica Q.
If you have any specific question just send me message in the comments or through my Instagram and I will let you know my experience…
