Street Photography with my new-old Nikon FM2

My new toy - Nikon FM2
I recently managed to get a hold on a Nikon FM2 after weeks of chasing it on ebay. I found it in a shop in Vienna for a few bucks and I was so excited to try it out with my Nikkor Lenses.

Here the result with my AF Nikkor 20mm 1:2.8 D. Pretty sweet!

Getting closer

With a 20mm lens on a fullframe camera, I really need to push myself to get close to my subjects. It’s amazing to see what happens when I take this pictures in the street, smiling and saying thank you. The people actually smile back all the time and they enjoy to be in the pics. It’s really fun to get closer.

  1. After several attempts, I have got mine and usually play around with the 50mm / 1.4 that I bought along with. Street photography is my passion but am obviously an amateur. What films would you recommend?
