This was one of my first Street Photography Market Bliss workshops around Brick Lane London. This area is all to well known for markets and street life. I was ready for an adventure. Using my Olympus Pen-F along with my trusty 25mm f1.8 Lens for the duration of the day.
So let me start by answering some simple questions. My backpack is from Doughnut and is called Montana Black. It is an everyday backpack that fits all your kit and laptop or iPad with room for your lunch. I handle my camera kit by using an insert from TENBA called BYOB Insert 9 This insert holds one camera with lens attached along with two other lenses and a flash. Not forgetting to mention battery and SD card holder.
It all just works and no one would even think its a camera bag as you walk around the crowded streets covering your street photography. I’ve tested a lot of bags in my time and at the moment this is by far the best way to travel taking in to account all the things you need for a day or two.
The street photography was all around us in every market we had the chance to visit on the day. We started the journey from Hamilton Hall Wetherspoons street-level Concourse, Liverpool Street Station. 32, Liverpool Street Station, London, EC2M 7PY. From there we took a short walk to Spitalfields Markets, Petticoat Lane Market and Brick Lane Market in Shoreditch. This is where retro meets vintage. This is also where the graffiti artist Banksy gained much of his recognition. Brick Lane is buzzing on a Sunday with the wonderful and the unusual.
