A few days ago I wrote about how I was helping my niece with a mock photography project. You can read about that here. I took her to St. Augustine this past weekend to get some shots that would mock the style and techniques of Vivian Maier's street self-portraits. I let my niece use my Fuji x100s camera which is perfect for street photography while I used my Sony A7. The A7 wasn't exactly designed for street photography but I have found that it works quite well for this genre. The only big negative would be the loud clicking shutter sound but I actually don't mind it too much.
My niece is still in the process of processing her photos and selecting a shot to use for her project. She has some very good shots and I hope I will be able to share there on my blog soon. I took some Maier style self-portraits as well. There were a lot of stores with mirrors and windows with nice reflections but the shot below was my favorite. I will be sharing other street photography photos from our trip very soon.
