night time street photgraphy

How do I take good night time street shots of a person with OM10? What film would you recommend?

  A night time street shot of an unlit person would be difficult. Using a slow shutter speed, the person would be blurred, but maybe that is what you want. The aperture would have to be wide, and you would need a film with a high ISO.

Moving traffic at night would be better, because you could do a time-lapse and get the nice motion of the car lights.

  For typical night shooting, you would need a multi-second exposure for most films and a cooperative model who can stand still for long periods of time.

(Forget about candids unless you are using flash.)
