This week’s featured street photographer is Tony Lin. Tony has an eye for angles, is a pro at capturing gestures and gazes and his work even has a humorous edge on occasion. I admire his unique, yet somehow familiar perspective and his beautiful technique. I asked Tony a few questions about his work. He may not be a man of many words, but his answer are nonetheless honest, revealing and compelling.
AH: How did you get into street photography?
TL: I think street photography is more of a challenge to me. I like to capture elements which are not posed.
AH: How would you describe your street photography style?
TL: Quick and close
AH: I agree, it’s part of the appeal of your images. It’s obvious your a pro on the technical side of things too. What gear are you using? What is your post processing routine like?
TL: The Leica MP with a Leica lense 28. I also use a Fuji XM1 with a Fuji sense 14. My post processing routine is to go home and then use Lightroom to enhance images I like.
AH: To you, what makes an image compelling?
AH: What advice would you give to people who are new to street photography?
TL: Always go to a street and just shoot, shoot, shoot.
Great advice from a talented photographer. Here is a selection of some of Tony’s shots that we here at SPM love:
