Brussels: Street portraits

Written by Nasir Hamid on August 19th, 2011

A few weeks ago I went to Antwerp and Brussels with my family for a holiday. I took only film cameras with me, hoping to do lots of photography, especially street portraits but the weather wasn’t always on our side so I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. Overall I shot more colour than black & white but I haven’t developed any of the colour yet.

[Tech info]: Mamiya M645 1000S loaded with Kodak Tri-X film, exposed at ISO 400 and developed in HC110 for 13mins at 20C.

Fellow photographer and huge inspiration, Jan Scholz.

Backlit portrait

This gentleman said he didn't usually like being photographed but was kind enough to oblige. He was backlit by the sun and I liked how the flare looked.

Evening sunlit portrait

There was no shade around so the harsh evening sunlight is not very flattering here.

This gentleman was watching the sun setting as it made its way down to the horizon.
