Who is doing the street and what are you using out there.
For me it's the Pen 1 with the 20mm. I use the 17mm with the finder sometimes but the 20 is doing the job.
What say you street shooters?
Interesting question...What do you think makes a good street photo?
may I just add that beeing street photographer is not just photographing street, it is much more...it is a way of living, it is lifestyle.Interesting question...
For me in my work, it's about being in the here and now.
As I walk the street, my mind is working like jazz....thoughts come and go...visually I am waiting for the elements of life to equal what I am thinking or responding to. When that happens, then I release....
At processing, I sometimes rediscover that moment in time. If the resultant image equals or surpasses that moment...it's a good image for me.
Then there are times that I walk and something happens like MAGIC...it's just all there, all happening and the energy and thoughts come together as if I am a part of the image being made....this image I never question for it's always the one that works, my role is the photographer.
Bresson called it the decisive moment...Stieglitz called it the Equivalent.... I just get blown away....
Hope that starts to answer for you....
I used Olys (E1, E520, E3), mainly with the 14-54 or the 25mm pancake.Who is doing the street and what are you using out there.
I've used different systems over the years and frankly haven't done much pure street photography with micro four-thirds gear yet. Preferred gear being more than anything a single focal length lens in the 24-50mm range, depending on how crowded things are and how close I can be to the subject. For the past couple of years that's been a Leica M8 + 28 Summicron, sometimes the 18 Super-Elmar.Who is doing the street and what are you using out there.
I'd put the number higher than that. Depends on where you look. On a given Flickr stream, someone may be uploading every single photograph they made without any selection for the better ones. In that case, the number worth seeing may be well less than 1%. In a forum thread, people usually select their best several pictures from an outing, a project, or a year. In that setting, I think the percentage worth seeing is much higher.Do you agree with:
Less than 1% of the 'street photography' I see on the web is worth seeing...
Actually, no. I see lots of great images on the web all the time.Do you agree with:
Less than 1% of the 'street photography' I see on the web is worth seeing, less than 1% makes me look twice and my heart race, less than 1% makes me dearly wish I had been the author of that shot...so why is that other 99% there?
