Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 23

So with last week’s February Filler this time around there’s going to be some image’s I’m actually more pleased about. Welcome to instalment 23 of my street photography series, as usual all taken on my Olympus OM-D EM-5 with Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm 1:1.4 lens. As usual let me know your thoughts in the comments, I’d love to hear them.

Alley.jpg ISO 400, F4, 1/200th Sec. Quite pleased with this one, the obvious thing’s for me would be the symmetry and repetition in the windows and lights hanging from the ceiling but then there’s also the shaft of light that leads across the image perfectly to the Moped itself, drawing your eye to it.

Barbeque.jpg ISO 400, F4, 1/100th Sec. Some kind of promotion for a restaurant in the city, I took a few image’s of this scene but liked this one the best as the smoke from the barbecue is positioned in just the right place to the left and above the head of the woman being interviewed. I also like how the mike on a pole is framing the subjects.

I like this photo for the strong contrast in light with the sun shining hard through the middle of the image forcing our attention upwards to the shadow. And purely for the scale of it, the sheer amount of beer barrels that these two guy’s have to lug into the basement of the bar. Rather them than me.

It’s come out well, as well as I’d hope anyway from shooting from my lap, but I’m proud of it as it’s me getting over my apprehension of taking street photography at closer distances than I’m normally comfortable with.
