Reply Y K says: October 15, 2016 at 5:28 pm For me, as a Japanese, doing streetphotography is the most difficult thing because Japanese people really mind being photographed and uploaded on Internet, especially parents of kids really do mind. I often get questioned, stopped and an offended look. But strangely we Japanese tend to be generous to tourists and let them do it 😀 I could enjoy streetphotography in California… Or maybe I should train myself more to become a better street photographer… Reply Peter Cavagnol says: October 23, 2016 at 10:55 am Instagram account??

How do you like shooting with it?🙂 Reply Chris Watson says: April 3, 2017 at 7:28 pm Hey great video, very cool photography. Reply Eddy j says: April 13, 2017 at 12:27 pm still using the D3 Lukasz, thinking of picking one up today for street already have the voit 40mm Reply Nagisa Yoshikawa says: April 15, 2017 at 7:59 pm Very nice, my wife is Japanese and we are headed to Japan (from Chicago) in November and I'm bring my newly purchased (used) Fuji X-E1. I'm drawn to shooting the street but I'm also intimidated. Can you recommend other lens focal lengths as I've heard it can get so crowed its difficult to shoot. I have at present a 28mm, 50mm and a 16-50 mm. I'm thinking of investing in a new 23mm for the trip but I also want that up close and intiment photo. Very cool video. Thanks. Reply Simon Hatfield says: April 21, 2017 at 12:43 pm Hi Lukasz, I was on one of your night photography tours a few weeks ago, it was awesome. Just came across your YouTube channel. Enjoyed this video and look forward to checking out more. Can't wait to visit Tokyo again. Cheers Simon Reply mike ck says: April 21, 2017 at 10:33 pm Check this out guys https://youtu.be/teQlDPIbdAI Reply Black Titan says: April 30, 2017 at 2:34 am this video really spoke to me, changed my whole perspective when I was shooting In NYC Reply Black Titan says: April 30, 2017 at 2:43 am I thought manual focus was better for still subjects, rather moving subjects wouldn't you use auto focus? Reply alvareo92 says: May 1, 2017 at 3:38 am Great photos, and I really like the colours: Lukasz, any special processing or just the sensor/lens? Reply artemorbid says: May 4, 2017 at 5:57 am Amazing work here, what type of camera do you recommend for these types of photos? Reply Nassim MAHAMMEDI says: May 7, 2017 at 2:39 am I love the photos, I love street photography, I leave in Tsukuba i'll be doing stree photography sooner 🙂 thank you Reply !mrdunn brucvald says: May 15, 2017 at 1:23 am no. Reply Debajyoti Biswas says: May 19, 2017 at 2:29 am I LIKE YOUR SHOOTING TECHNIC. IT IS FANTASTIC. WOULD YOU VIEW BISWAS STREET PHOTOGRAPHY-6 AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. I WILL APPRECIATE YOUR UNBIAST OPINION. Thank you Reply mothking12 says: May 25, 2017 at 3:01 pm Lukasz, i absolutely love your work! i realize this video is three years old, but nonetheless very inspiring. i love looking at your photos and the atmosphere they all contain, and studying every detail included. i always make up stories about the places and people in them. i love what you do and hope you keep it up! Reply Pawel Zawislak says: May 30, 2017 at 1:14 am I met Lukasz when I was visiting Tokyo in 2014. A very nice, and clearly a very talented dude. Reply H E says: June 10, 2017 at 5:51 am Have to agree with regards to street photography, I have found it pretty hard to find photographers these days who actually take photos of people just living their lives un-staged with real drama. Reply Andre Gallek says: June 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm Impressive. Reply Ben says: June 11, 2017 at 12:20 pm God your photos are fantastic would love to shoot streets in tokyo and osaka. On a side note the 27mm Fuji is pretty close to 40mm full-frame something to consider if you want to downsize. No distance scale though. Reply James Colar says: June 22, 2017 at 1:08 pm Awesome interview. Well versed and a great display of what can be captured in Japan. I live in Ayase-shi, which is about an hour from Tokyo. The Shinjuku, Ginza and Shibuya areas are prime for street shots. I especially like Tokyo and Yokohama Station. Great work and I hope to see you out there someday. Reply Adam Hartshorn says: June 24, 2017 at 7:39 am what was the the lens used for this video ? Reply Mind the Mix says: July 6, 2017 at 4:39 am Talented and smart artist. Lovely work. Reply SuperGrumpy666 says: July 8, 2017 at 8:52 am Im so sick of photographers trying to make their shit look good by overlaying loud music. Why do i have to hit mute on every one of these fuckin' photog walk videos. Reply Aleksandar Antonovic says: July 13, 2017 at 12:27 am I really like the way you describe street photography! Nothing pretentious, just moments captured in the lens! Reply James F says: July 18, 2017 at 1:57 pm Hey Mate, thanks for the inspiration! Heading to Japan in Nov! Reply TheMatteo462 says: July 24, 2017 at 7:55 am What a pleasure for my eyes. I like your calm and peaceful style. Btw i just came here from Bruce Gilden video 😀 Reply Kornel Haduch says: July 25, 2017 at 1:29 pm Świetne zdjęcia! Sam spędziłem 2 lata w Japonii robiąc w tym czasie sporo zdjęć. Możliwe, że może za rok wrócę. Super byłoby razem zdjęcia porobić 🙂instagram: @kornelh24 Reply Albert Wong says: July 25, 2017 at 2:58 pm Amazing photos! Great work!!

That was great, one of the best 'street photography' videos I've seen. And I like your photographs, that's the most amazing thing. Reply Tokyo Lens says: August 11, 2017 at 5:22 am Had a chance to shoot with Lukasz last weekWhich was before I found this video.Now… I can't wait to shoot with him again.Loved every part of this~ Reply Piotr Czechowski says: August 12, 2017 at 1:29 pm nie myslales zeby fotografowac miasto czyms mniejszym? dalmierz? bezlusterkowiec?

Reply Globetrotter J.Jimenez says: August 14, 2017 at 9:11 am Fantatsic video, great !!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtbSbe_76Oo&t=0s Reply mtmjolnir says: August 16, 2017 at 9:32 am Damn! I made this little documentary of Lukasz and didn't expect many views, it has been growing at a linear rate and is at 100k views! I suspect because of Youtube's algorithm. But I have to say, Lukasz has been doing even greater work since! Check out his site. And he has been growing his successful Photography Adventure Tourism business. You can check it out at https://www.eyexplore.com/ It has nothing but positive reviews! If you are hobbyist or even a professional, Lukasz's workshops are a must in Tokyo! Reply karayuschij says: August 18, 2017 at 7:53 am Excellent works! Reply Georgi Marinow says: September 1, 2017 at 9:32 am I just love the way you said: I keep it simple, I shoot with "NIKON D3" 😀 😀 😀 You made my day !!!

Insightful, well shot, well spoken, and inspirational. Thanks you! Reply ああ says: September 18, 2017 at 9:56 am もし許可を取らずに顔を写しているのなら止めたほうが良いですよ。誰かも知らない日本人があなたの写真を勝手に撮ってネットにアップしていたら嫌でしょう？ Reply ああ says: September 18, 2017 at 9:59 am それ以外はとても素敵な動画でした。日本を好きになってくれてありがとうございます。たくさん日本を楽しんでいってください。 Reply Steed Lord says: September 19, 2017 at 8:36 am I'm interested on what camera/lens this documentary was shot on? Reply Lawrence says: September 27, 2017 at 6:08 am Muddled Reply Michael Myers says: October 13, 2017 at 6:37 am Great attitude and information. The photo of the girl with the white umbrella cutting through the people is amazing. Loved this video. Reply Jack Kang says: November 16, 2017 at 8:11 pm The photo at 0:43 is what I have as a wallpaper on my computer. My absolute favorite. Reply Mélissa Lobo says: January 8, 2018 at 10:19 pm amazing!

And that's true in New York not the same as here in Brussels I had also the same experience. Reply Beta β Aquarii says: April 10, 2018 at 9:51 pm Hi sir! I really like your photos. I’ve been practicing street photography. May i ask what settings do you normally use on day light? Iso aperature and shutter speed? Teach me senpai! ✌🏻 Reply Rajdeep Ghosh says: April 17, 2018 at 9:17 am Great photos. Thanks.

These are some of the most Leica like images I’ve seen coming from a non Leica camera. I may have found my next setup. Thank you. 🙏😊 I just followed your Instagram. I’m sandboxvet. Reply MOHAMED ABBAS says: September 1, 2018 at 10:02 pm This is my goal in life. I would really love to live in Tokyo as a photographer Reply Maros Matousek says: October 1, 2018 at 11:18 am The background music is too loud while Lukas is talking to the point that it is hard to understand what he is saying. Could you please adjust it. The music is fine for the Broll but not the best for Aroll as it is distracting. Thanks for the adjustment and the video.

I just love the combination of infrastructure, japanese language, "hidden" stores, lights…just wow Reply Rich Clark Productions says: April 10, 2019 at 11:52 pm I love that you see film as inspiration.

Reply Señor Calabaza says: July 28, 2019 at 1:22 pm One of my fav videos. I watched it years ago when I was starting in photography and it was really inspiring. Now after many hundreds of videos watched it's one of the few that I keep coming time to time and stills inspiring me in a different way everytime Reply Isle Of Wight Alternative Attractions says: August 6, 2019 at 6:25 pm Nice work.. 👍 Reply Edis Gaiz says: August 25, 2019 at 9:21 am in NY it would be like hey why are you taking pictures get out my way or you get a law suite 😀 Reply Andre 1,000 says: August 26, 2019 at 9:48 pm awesome, thank you Reply Daniel Kingham says: October 30, 2019 at 10:10 pm Your a photographer !!!
