A little while ago I blogged about doing travel- and streetphotography with a foldable medium format camera.
I tried another approach while I am in New York on a business trip with a Hasselblad (waistlevel finder) medium format SLR.
This photo is an example what can be done with a ‘slow’ camera (manual focus, manual metering) such as the rented 503CX Hasselblad with the 80 mm CFE lens (a normal lens for medium format).
Finding the spot (background etc.) and waiting for the action proved to be one of the successful ways to make this work.
If you care about some more examples of this kind of pics, have a look at my flickr stream (places i’ve been – Manhattan flickr set).
