Street photography in Brussels, Belgium

I love photography, and even though I mostly shoot commercial pictures for my website, marketing and social media, my favorite kind of photography to practice is street photography. We took a family trip to Brussels because we can’t go on a summer holiday this year. Because my work as designer and owner of PolyWolves takes up almost all my spare time I haven’t taken personal pictures in quite a while, I was excited to bring my camera to what is supposed to be a big and beautiful city.

The camera I use is a Nikon D7100 combined with a Nikkor AF-S DX 18-70mm f3.5-4.5G ED-IF. Not really your go to lens for street photography but the zoom range makes it practical in a lot of situations. The only problem I have with this lens is the speed. Something like a 35mm f1.8 would give me the possibility to take pictures late at night without cranking up the ISO real high.

As a back-up camera I brought my Nikon S9000 compact camera. A compact and small but very decent little point-and-shoot camera that I could use if I ran into trouble with my DSLR (I didn’t).

One of the first things I noticed when we arrived in Brussels was the really big difference in architecture. You find a lot of beautiful old buildings standing next to clean and modern buildings.

There is one picture in this blog post that is not taken in Brussels.
