Walking the vibrant streets camera in hand for some Barcelona Street Photography. The Spanish city offers endless opportunities for captivating street photographers.

Interacting with the locals, witnessing first hand their daily lives, and capturing the genuine expressions and emotions that unfold around you. Barcelona's residents are known for their warmth and passion, which can add a compelling human element you can see in the photographs.

I experimented with different perspectives, from wide-angle shots that showcase the grandeur of the city's landmarks to close-ups that reveal the intricate details of its architecture or the subtle expressions of its inhabitants.

Lastly, I thoroughly enjoyed the process of documenting the life of Barcelona through my lens. Embracing the energy and creativity flow of the city, adapting and being ready for its ever-changing scenes.

The Nikon Z8 is a super camera for candid street photography. The speed is great even though I tend to use manual focus when doing street photography, you can quickly change to autofocus due to the speed of the camera.
