Street shooting fashion with the Nikon Z7 in the Far East

Street shooting Fashion with the Z7 in the Far East by Mark Fiddian ( website | Instagram ) Having spent most of my year in my studio I really look forward to the opportunity now and again to shoot freely on location and in particular street shooting. This is not as you might imagine candid shots of unwitting people in the street but a planned fashion shoot in a street environment though very much a run and gun exercise which makes it very productive and great fun. There is a considerable difference to street shooting in the Far East to doing it in Europe if it’s a run and gun exercise.
