Fujifilm X100VI street photography camera

The Fuji X100VI is amazing for street photography, with its discreet design and compact look you can get images you wouldn’t normally be able to get with a mirrorless or DSLR camera. I use the Fuji X100VI camera for street photography in London when I go. You really can get some amazing images with this little camera.

Coming from an architectural background I like to find symmetry in my London street photography and use buildings to frame subjects. There is something quite mesmerizing watching people sit among the architecture in London. This is a lot easier with a small camera like the X100VI from FujiFilm with its compact design people don’t notice you as much.

Finding architecture in street photography with the Fujifilm X100VI

Finding leading lines and great architecture to go with it takes a lot of practice. With this striking image, you can see people just going about their day and being included in the architecture around them. It makes for a great image. Canary wharf station is an amazing piece of architecture for street photography in London. The lighting is just perfect and fills the entrance with amazing light too. I loved being able to see in the live view exactly what I was going to get on the Fuji X100VI before I even clicked the shutter button.

Why does being a street photographer help my commercial work?

Having a day out in London taking street photography images helps you improve your skills for commercial work, especially for commercial event sector. You are always looking for moments and the perfect light for somebody to walk into. It helps to improve your reaction time and to anticipate moments happening in front of you.

With my architecture work, I’m constantly trying to find the best angles to photograph buildings or how to show some perspective on how big the building may be. Being forced into a situation where you have to make a conscious decision on the spot on how to capture a great image in one click is just so addictive.

Creative Fuji X100VI film simulation recipes

With the Fujifilm x100VI custom film recipes you can really dial in the look and feel of an image before it is even taken. This gives you so much inspiration when out shooting as it’s like having Lightroom edit your photos before your eyes so you can see exactly what the image will look like when you hit the shutter button. My two favourite film simulation recipes are Classic Chrome and Reala Ace. The look and feel of them both are timeless and can be used in various situations too.

Symmetry with the Fujifim X100VI

In London, I’m constantly trying to find new angles. I look for symmetry in my photos, with the gridlines you can enable on the X100 VI you can line your shot up perfectly. Also the screen oulls out so you can get a better view of the image you are taking.. With this photo below I framed the London skyline with a section of the bridge. Because there are so many buildings in London you can frame your shots with symmetry in mind. This enables you to create some striking and unique images within London.
