Christmas Street.

Since the end of November I have been shooting quite a lot of street photography in and around the European Market in Edinburgh. It’s always a good focal point for street photography during the festive period.

I quite enjoyed getting jammed in with people on busy weekend visits there, as this was a chance to get closer to subjects etc. Normally I’m not a fan of crowds like that, and I have no patience for being forced to move at a snails pace. But in this case I really enjoyed it, and went out of my way to get caught up in the crowd.

I used the Market as a focal point for trips to town, but also wandered around a lot too. I shot exclusively with the Ricoh GR, which is a great camera for street photography as it’s smaller, lighter, more discreet, and not as threatening as a DSLR might be to your subjects. Not that you shouldn’t shoot street with a DSLR, but I certainly feel less conspicuous and more relaxed with the Ricoh.

This post is pretty image heavy, but I didn’t really feel like doing it in two parts.
