Point of View Street Photography With the Fujifilm X-Pro 2

Fujifilm’s X-Pro 2 is known for its Leica-esq appearance and, much like the Leica, also known and revered in street photography circles as a camera to have.

Dante Sisofo, a Philadelphia based street photographer, was lucky enough to get an X-Pro2 for Christmas. He decided to take his new camera out for a test run on the streets of Philly and, to give viewers the POV (point of view) treatment, he strapped a GoPro HERO 3+ to his chest for the duration of the trip. 

Sisofo himself admits that the images displayed in the video itself are not exactly ‘keepers’ or anything to write home about from a street photography perspective, but in terms of seeing how a street photographer works it is an interesting video. As someone who is admittedly terrible at street photography, I always find it interesting to see how others do what they do and how they go about capturing the images that they do.

One aspect of the video that I particularly found interesting was the perspective of the video. I kept wondering why he was holding his camera up so high when he was taking a picture, but quickly realized that he was actually just holding it up to his eye and that due to the perspective of the GoPro it felt like his camera was being held higher than it was.
