Hello, 

I’ve been doing street photography for about a year now after watching a couple of documentaries about it on school and the internet, I’ve been attracted to people and shapes ever since.

Would love to get some honest feedback on these.

These images are shot in The Netherlands, mainly in Amsterdam shot on my old Rolleiflex camera.

Thank you for your time.

Shooting in the street with a Rolleiflex is hard:  not much depth of field, you constantly have to check the light, and then you need to change film just when you wish you had one or two more frames.  But when you hit it, the images come out beautifully.  These are all wonderful, and it looks like you’ve done the right amount of intelligent post-processing as well.  I especially like nos. 1, 4 and 6.  No. 5 is a tantalizing near-miss:  love the gesture, but he’s not well separated from the background.  The light in no. 1 is just gorgeous.

These are lovely shots. Street photography with a rolliflex with good compositions. Truely a lost art. Well done. Number 4 is my favorite.

Love the contrast and composition in all of the photos, the timing especially in the first and third  photos. Shooting in Rolleiflex is hard but I am always fascinated in processing films from old cameras. I process my 35mm films and it’s getting more and more difficult (and expensive) sourcing for the chemicals needed (here in Thailand), and maybe soon, even the films. These shots are all sharp, well done!

these are beautiful in terms of definition and tone. for some reason my tablet struggles to load some of them. from what i see the first two are very nice in their own way. picture 2 is interesting although with too much sky id say, wasting too much of the frame.

Good job considering you’re shooting with a rolli. I would consider maybe changing your angle in future attempts. For example i personally think that the image would have been alot stronger head on. I know this is hard to do sometimes cause i shoot with a hasselblad and a waist level viewfinder. Its just something to maybe think about next time you’re out. i try to consciously stand in front of people or i’ll step back to kind of have them walking diagonally across the frame.

You want Honest feedback well here it is;

I like the # 1,2 and 4 photos, to me they are interesting, i don’t give to much importance on composition or anything else, if your subjects are interesting that will make your photos unique and that will always win over composition.
Your photos remind me of the photos of Vivian Maier and she also used a Rolleiflex.
