I’ve noticed you like to keep your aperture around f8 or f9. And your shutter speed is often around 1/250, but then your ISO is at 3200. I’m curious your reasoning for these settings. Do you like the grain that 3200 ISO gives you for street photography like this? Just curious

Well spotted! I have a custom setting on my camera for street photography: f/8, auto ISO with a minimum speed of 1/250s. That pushes up the noise but the Canon 6D is quite good at dealing with noise. Lightroom is good at reducing noise and the web sized versions of my images that I upload are softened by resizing.
