I’m in a hotel in Leeds just about to book an early morning wake up call.. 4am to be precise, for a taxi to take me to Leeds/Bradford airport for a flight to one of my all time favourite cities Barcelona. It’s a city I visit a lot, I love it for capturing street photography images but it’s also a great city to teach street photography too and this visit is to do just that. I work a lot with Simon from South Essex College and again we’re going to Barcelona for a couple of days with 9 of his students to practice street photography and to also do some night photography.
I’ve booked to stay a couple of extra days too to do some work for me and also catch up with my friend Joan, he runs photography tours and has a studio and gallery in the Gothic Quarter so I’m really looking forward to catching up with him and enjoying some fine wine and tapas.
Street Photography in Barcelona
One of the things I love about street photography
is that you capture a split second in someones day, a moment never to be repeated.
Smoked Paprika at La Boqueria
This is another Analogue photograph from our recent Street Photography Course in Barcelona.
Taken again in the very famous La Boqueria market, which is just off La Ramblas in Barcelona.
La Boqueria 10 years On..
I have just come back from Barcelona where we put on a 2 day street photography course.
Whilst there I wanted to re visit and photograph La Boqueria, its just one of those places that draws me.
Walking around this famous market is so inspirational, there’s so much you can photograph.
I spotted a fishmonger I photographed 10 years ago the same weekend, so i just had to get another analogue shot of her.
So here it is..
You can see the original analogue photograph of the same lady if you follow this link, its image 32 out of 52
I took this image on my recently acquired Fuji GS 645 S professional Film was Ilford HP5 Plus 400 asa Exposure is 60th sec at F4
Let me know your thoughts…….
Street Photograph of one of my favorite restaurants in Barcelona, Los Caracoles. Where on a previous visit i was invited into the kitchen to take photographs of the chefs working.
I took this on a Leica M4 with a 35mm Summicron F/2.0 lens, Film was Ilford Delta 400 asa
We have just got back from working in Barcelona on our Street Photography Course
, it’s been an amazing week so much has happened, so much to tell, which will come later.
We met these two guys who are Parkour, Free Runners. Parkour is a way of life and these two are amazing, I and a couple of the others photographed them whilst they were in flight.
I wanted to do a analogue street portrait of them, I shot this on a new camera that has been added to my growing collection of film cameras, a Fuji GS 645 S Professional analogue camera, more on that later.
Black and white film of choice is Ilford HP5 Plus
Funnily enough this Analogue Black and White Street Photograph is called Toxic.
It was taken on the streets of one of my favorite cities, Barcelona.
The camera I used was the very beautiful twin lens Rolleiflex 6×6 F2.8 planar lens. This camera is so compact and portable and helps you blend into the surroundings.
Image quality is phenomenal, down to the Carl Zeiss lens me thinks.
We go to Barcelona in the next couple of weeks to deliver a 2 Day Street Photography Course.
This got me thinking about food, which in turn got me thinking of one of my favourite restaurants The Grill Room, which in turn got me thinking of this Analogue Photograph I took of the starter chef making one of my favourite starters Tomato Bread with loads of Spanish Iberian ham…
