Street Photography In Panoramic Format

When shooting street, occasionally I encountered a certain decisive moment where the subjects came together and were best suited to be frame in panoramic style. The Hasselblad Xpan is my preferred camera capturing panoramic street photos. The Xpan (bundled with 45mm standard lens)  is the most compact size film panoramic format camera. It is less intimidating to the subjects. Secondly the loading and unloading of film on the Xpan is simple, unlike the Mamiya 6 or 7 system, where you have use a special film adaptor in order to in 35mm panoramic format.

I would like to share a series of monochrome street portraits. These are spontaneous candid shots that were captured at Georgetown World Heritage  Site, Penang Malaysia. The photos were photographed using the Leica MP with 35mm Summicron lens.
