Smartphone street photography: September 2021

September 21, 2021

September 2021 has been a nice month for my street photography with smartphone, probably because in summer I didn’t take a lot of pictures, this season is always too hot for me. You don’t need a Leica camera to take street photos, you need only a camera, better if always with you. So what about to take pictures with our smartphone? I think that it is even better than a mirrorless. Smartphone is always with you, in your pockets. It is discreet, less people will notice you if you do street photography with a phone. Try by yourself using a reflex or mirrorless instead of an iPhone for example.

Next months will be important because after years I have decided to buy again an iPhone, only for his quality in taking pictures and video. I need a fast camera, lens sharp enough, a good quality also in low light condition and night. iPhone 13 pro has 3 lenses, and it is fast and perfect for my street photography.

By the way this month I re-started to do street photography. I’ve posted few days ago a mini-portfolio with pictures taken at sea with my smartphone.

Let’s see what I made this month. I’ve selected few photos.

First one is my favorite, probably the best. I was going to gym, I’ve seen this nice couple waiting for green light. I started to take pictures while I was walking.

Below you can see the whole sequence. I prefer shots taken further away, scene is more idyllic for this perspective. I like it with subject centered.
