I used to do street photography on my iPhone.
(Update: Today, I actually use the X-T3 from Fuji. A brand new camera that is perfect for street photography)
The best street photography camera is the one you with you when you see a cool shot.
The fact that you have a great camera in your pocket opens up for a lot of opportunities. Of course, the camera and lens in your smartphone aren’t as good as a professional digital camera, but in street photography, using a phone sometimes be an advantage.
Your phone is sneaker than a digital camera
Take this photo for example. I took this using my phone, pretending I was talking and passing by this gentlemen. I’m not saying this is a great photo, but there is no doubt that a smartphone is way more stealthy for candid street photography than DSLR, Digital or mirrorless camera.
I filmed a day of doing street photography in Mexico City.
Here I will lay out what I did to take better photos using my phone.
