My 10 Best SOOC Street Photography Series #1

Best SOOC Street Photography Series

As a street photographer in Kuala Lumpur, I’ve chosen some of my best SOOC street photography pictures to share with my readers. There are many various kinds of street photography, as we all know, and I’m not claiming to be an expert, but here are a few of my favorites. I have selected the 10 best street photography photos which were shot with the Contax G1 & Fujifilm X-T4 camera. Previously I have compiled two series of best portrait shots from my portrait work in Kuala Lumpur.

Ever since I’ve been shooting with the Fujifilm SOOC film simulation recipes, I no longer edit my photos with Capture One and all are shared straight out of the camera. Some photos are selected from my photo walk trip to Penang and outings in popular street photography locations in Kuala Lumpur including Chinatown and Bukit Bintang area.

For the time being, I will choose 10 of the best photographs to be included in this first series, with more series to come in the future. I usually shoot in Aperture Priority mode while simultaneously mastering zone focusing, which is one of the most helpful skills for street photography.

Most of the time, I chose Nomadic Mood, one of my favorite Fujifilm recipes for creating a melancholy color tone for loneliness, also known as solitude. I couldn’t agree more that if you like street photography, you should try this recipe. If you enjoy street photography, you might be interested in the finest Fujifilm street photography recipes. I enjoy photographing people, regular urban life, and isolation, which generally consists of only one person.

There are differences between urban photography & street photography. Urban photography includes candid, non-candid shots, of the surroundings, daily activities, objects, cityscapes, landscapes and so on. On the other hand, street photography focuses more on candid photos of only people’s everyday life on the streets.

I enjoy candid, solitude & urban photography because it allows me to express dramatic emotion in my images. Generally, I will get some street photography project ideas and will shoot on the street to compile a street photo collection. I photograph objects, streets, or people who are walking, sitting, working, standing, or doing something. It is also one of the genres in street photography, and many viewers will probably not comprehend the story behind the photographs.

I often enjoy spending lots of hours wandering about the city, a maximum of up to 4-5 hours in the morning. On weekends, I enjoy going for a stroll and then relaxing at cafés nearby in Kuala Lumpur to rehydrate and I enjoyed my street photography photo walk session even more.

One of the photos I took was on an outing to the Kuala Lumpur area while the sun was low in the sky. This is perhaps the ideal moment to photograph light and shadow.
