Street Portrait shooting by Saurav Chowdhury

Getting out to shoot

After a year out of doing any real personal portraits or photography work, I finally got some time with Reena to shoot some street portraits.

We had no concepts for this shoot so we just wondered around Soho/Fitzrovia and find some great lighting and street scenes at golden hour and as the sun set, headed towards Hyde Park and Winter Wonderland.

Shot with:

  • Canon 5D IV
  • Canon 85mm f/1.8
  • Canon 50mm f/1.4

Using the Lens Distortions assets


The Sky Garden + Street by Saurav Chowdhury

Was booked to go to the Sky Garden at 20 Fenchurch Street (Walkie Talkie building), and after the disappointing cloudy weather and lack of solar eclipse in this part of England it was definitely nice to visit a beautiful place with a gorgeous view of the London skyline! I also got some street shooting done again as I hadn't gone out for a long time and the sun was shining finally as well as it being golden hour.
