Zone focusing, Southbank

The Story

I was keen to try a technique called zone focusing, which I learnt on a Fujifilm street photography workshop with Brian Lloyd Duckett. To do this successfully you need a 23mm lense or wider. I managed to borrow a Fujifilm 23mm f1.4 lense from a friend to try out.I had my Fujifilm XT-3 set in a black & white film simulation mode Acros. The camera set to black & white it allows you focus more on the composition instead of colours distracting you.
