I initially moved to mirrorless around a year ago in order to find a camera system that was light weight and could be used in the city with minimal fuss; a system that left me a more nimble, responsive photographer. This is hardly a revelation and I am sure this is the exact reason a lot of photographers ditched their heavy dslr and lenses for a mirrorless set-up. For me, the switch to mirrorless ran parallel with my desire to create a new style of photography too.
I love architecture and I love photography but I have to admit sometimes architecture photography leaves a little cold. To be honest, I have always found perfection a little boring (not just in photography!) and to a large degree, architectural photography is often too perfect for me.
I have been wrestling with this in my own photography and have been trying to create a style that focuses on architecture but embraces more of a ‘street photography’ aesthetic. I love the immediacy of street photography, its imperfections, the grain, the way it captures the essence of a moment.
