NYC Street Photography


I'm in NYC attending to some family matters, and guess what?  I have all day Saturday free.  Hmm, what to do? What to do?  I know, street photography.  I came prepared.  I'm primarily going to shoot film, but am bringing digital too.

I was going to take a small kit, but I decided to bring 4 cameras.  Here's what I brought.  One note, I did switch out one camera from the photo at the last minute.  The kit


  • Nikon D810 with a Nikon MB-D14 vertical battery grip
  • Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 & Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 lenses or the D810
  • A bunch of 32GB memory cards
  • Olympus MJU-1 point & shoot film camera
  • Pentax K1000 film camera (I was originally going to bring my Yashica Electro 35 GSN but wanted an SLR without a light meter (my K1000 meter is dead)
  • Yashica 44 TLR
  • Luna-Pro light meter (for the K1000)
  • 2 rolls of Rera Pan 100 127 film for the Yashica 44
  • 9 rolls of various Ilford B&W film including 1 roll of Lomography 400 color film
I know it's a lot.  Most people will bring only one camera / one lens, but I wanted to play with film with an SLR, a point & shoot and a TLR.  I also wanted to bring a workhorse digital camera (that I use in the studio)

I plan to spend about 10 hours just walking through the city.  Once I run out of film, I'll switch to digital....

Here we go!  I'll report back with pictures.
