Sydney street. Fuji Astia 100.

Sydney street. Fuji Astia 100.


I love the look you can get on the street with slide film. It's a

shame Astia has been discontinued! I will miss it.


Shot on Mamiya C330. I find it much more enjoyable to shoot on the street with a waist level finder than with a camera held to my face. To me it feels much less direct than a traditional SLR or rangefinder. People also seem quite interested in a TLR / waist level finder camera and when I'm wandering around with the Mamiya I get a comment of "nice camera" about every 20 minutes. It's nice to sometimes chat to people when they ask about it. No one has ever said that about my huge EOS 5D which they probbaly look at and assume I killed Lady Diana.
