These images were captured with the Pentax 645N. I had the 75mm 2.8 Lens attached. I have not used medium format on the street for a couple of years. It is very difficult to be discrete with such a large camera. You have to become part of the festivities. It also helps that Pike Place Market was the setting. People are too busy trying to acclimate to the chaos.

Very nice street portraits!

Thank you. I was out shooting with the camera yesterday and now my sore shoulder is sorer.
Excellent work with that mf camera.
I have done a little street work with tlr cameras. They tend toward the big and awkward too, but since the photographer is looking down into the waist-level finder, subjects don’t often take much notice.

I have never had a hostile situation occur when I use the camera. People are curious and surprised. The only time I have a real problem is when I use a black DSLR camera.
