A lot of us, including myself, have a thing for street photography in black and white. But I also try to force myself to do more street photos in colors – especially for night shots where colors really come to play. All of my photos are shot with the Fuji x100f
My three favorite cameras for street photography in colors are:
All of these cameras pack a lot of punch, are pretty affordable and lightweight. All of my color street photography is done using these two cameras.

This was my favorite street photos in colors and I want to do more of this – Especially because I live in colorful Mexico. When I do portrait photography, I usually use flash, regardless of it being in color or black & white portraits.
I’m not sure I will ever stick to street photography in color or in black and white. To me, I think both serve their purpose depending on the situation you are photographing and I think I will continue doing both types of street photos.
Street Photography: Black & White Vs. Color
I think I tend to do more black and white, when I do portraits or if I’m playing with light. And I do street photography in color when I can show contrast, juxtaposition or play with the colors in a way.
Are you looking for cameras?
My secondary camera for street photography is the Ricoh GR II Digital. It’s a perfect camera for street photography, whether you shoot in color or black and white.
